Central State University president Cynthia Jackson-Hammond has been named one of the top ten most influential presidents at historically black colleges and universities.
The national recognition, which acknowledges Jackson-Hammond’s leadership at CSU, is from HBCU Digest, a publication that covers historically black colleges and universities.
Last year, Jackson-Hammond was also named the 2016 female president of the year among historically black colleges and universities.
On Jan. 25, State Rep. Bill Dean, a Republican from Xenia, and state Rep Rick Perales, a Beavercreek Republican, will present her with a resolution acknowledging this accomplishment on the floor in the Ohio House.
Jackson-Hammond is the first female president in the 130- year history of Central State.
