On March 29, 2018 Morris College will hold a dedication for the Solomon
Jackson, Jr. Administration Building at 10:00 A.M. in conjunction with
the annual Pre-Easter worship service. The ceremony will be held in the
Neal-Jones Auditorium at 10:00 AM and Dr. Solomon Jackson, Jr. will
deliver the message.

Dr. Solomon Jackson, Jr. is a native of Columbia, South Carolina. He
presented a check in the amount of $10 million to the late Dr. Luns C.
Richardson, President of Morris College on January 7, 2010. This was the
largest individual gift in the institution’s history. His first
priority is the students, therefore, portions of Dr. Jackson’s gift
were used to provide endowed student scholarships, construct a new
dormitory, and aid in the construction of a new Student Health Services
Center. Other designated capital development projects include,
construction of a new administration building, the purchase of a new
coach bus, the roof replacement of an existing dorm, continued
landscaping and beautification of the campus; and adding to the
college’s general endowment.

Dr. Jackson describes learning God’s word and fellowshipping with some
outstanding teachers, preachers and students at the college as a “great
experience.” He publicly expresses his gratitude for the time he spent
in the classroom of Morris College. Reverend Jackson proudly shares how
studying theology at Morris College helped to mold him as the person he
is today. He truly internalizes the school’s motto, “Enter to Learn;
Depart to Serve” and he exemplifies by his unselfish actions towards
the improvement of education. This great servant of the Lord is a
lifelong resident of Columbia, South Carolina who is dedicated to family
and friends and supports the future goals of education as provided by
Morris College.
