Morris College to thank multi-million dollar donor at portrait unveiling
(SUMTER, S.C.) – Dr. Solomon Jackson, Jr. Morris College alum and former Board of Trustee member will be honored during a Monday, Feb. 24, ceremony, featuring a portrait unveiling.
The ceremony begins at 11 a.m., in the Solomon Jackson, Jr. Administration building. Dr. Jackson’s portrait will be the first portrait displayed on the first floor in the foyer of the building.
Dr. Jackson is well known for his unselfish philanthropic support to Morris College, the state of South Carolina and to higher education. In 2010, he presented a $10 million check to the late Dr. Luns C. Richardson, President of Morris College. This was the largest individual gift in the institution's history which provided scholarships for students, aided in the construction of a new Student Health Services Center, constructed a new residential hall and administration building, purchased a new coach bus, replaced the roof of an existing residential hall and added to the college’s general endowment.
