Bynum, Jr. as he was officially installed as the 11th President of Jackson State University (JSU) located in Jackson, Mississippi, one of the largest and highest ranked HBCUs in this country.

The investiture ceremony for Dr. William B. Bynum, Jr. was held on Thursday, Oct. 11th, inside the Rose E. McCoy Auditorium on the campus of Jackson State University. Later that evening, Dr. Bynum, his family and special guests were joined by supporters and loved ones in a celebratory dinner held at the Jackson Convention Complex.

During the ceremony, JSU’s Division of Institutional Advancement presented President William B. Bynum Jr. with a check for nearly $305,000 for scholarship funds that will help defray expenses for students.

Congratulations to President Bynum and the Jackson State University Family!
