Mississippi Valley State University President Dr. Jerryl Briggs, Sr. will participate in the Educate Me Foundation’s HBCU Teachers Fair as a panelist on the HBCUs Matter discussion. This event will begin 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. (EST) on January 27.

The HBCU Teachers Fair is designed to create an opportunity for current HBCU students majoring in education and HBCU alums to secure employment opportunities, network with other attendees, meet with schools, and learn from the guest speakers’ panelists to grow their teacher skill sets.
“I am honored to be a panelist for the outstanding event. Indeed, HBCUs matter now, before, and for our future,” said Briggs.
There will be over 500 educators and 70 different school systems from across the United States joining the Educate Me Foundation for the HBCU Teachers Fair.
