“The next step forward in building an inclusive society is making sure every young American gets a great education and the opportunity to achieve the American Dream.”
Those words from President Trump’s State of the Union this week really stuck with me, as they touch on one of the core responsibilities I have as Mississippi State Treasurer. In addition to returning unclaimed property and making sure our fiscal house is in order, the Treasury Department manages College Savings Mississippi. This is our state’s way of helping families give their children the opportunity to achieve the American Dream.
Along these lines, I had the chance to sit down with students and faculty from Alcorn State this week, which has campuses in Lorman, Natchez, and Vicksburg.
