Support Grows For Mississippi Valley State President

Chicot Memorial

ITTA BENA, MS (Ben Caxton) — The acting Mississippi Valley State President is getting support from alumni, faculty, and students who want the College Board to name him president without a full search. According to the Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper, acting president Jerryl Briggs garnered prominent support Thursday at a meeting where trustees asked Valley supporters to discuss desired qualities in a president. Briggs, previously chief operating officer, has run the 2,500-student school since William Bynum Jr. left in June to become president of Jackson State University. Briggs says he’d like to be president, and Bynum endorses him. College Board spokeswoman Caron Blanton has said Briggs will not be eligible for the post if trustees open a search to fill the position.
