Henderson State University announced that Lloyd Jackson has been named chief fundraising officer and associate vice chancellor of advancement.
Jackson most recently served as assistant superintendent for school leadership for Kansas City Public Schools after working 14 years in the Hot Springs School District.
Jackson, who started his new position May 8, graduated from Henderson in 2002 with a degree in mathematics and earned a master’s from Henderson in educational leadership in 2006, the university said in a news release. Jackson received a doctoral degree in educational leadership from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
“I am very excited to give back to an educational institution that has poured so much into me — a first-generation college student from Texarkana,” Jackson said. “Henderson State is a cornerstone to my life’s successes. I am so grateful.”
As chief fundraising officer, Jackson will lead operations in the areas of annual and planned giving, major gifts, corporate and foundation relations, campaign planning and implementation, and alumni and friend engagement.
“We are pleased to welcome Lloyd home to Henderson in this new role with the advancement team,” Tina Hall, vice chancellor of advancement, said in the release. “Lloyd is the epitome of the Reddie Spirit and is an excellent ambassador for Henderson and our alumni and friends.”
Jackson’s position is funded by the Henderson State University Foundation.
