(Charlotte, NC, September 2015)  The Art Institute of Charlotte, a campus of South University, had the distinct privilege and honor of hosting North Carolina State Senator Jeff Jackson as Commencement Keynote Speaker on September 25, 2015.

His message was motivational, inspirational, and laced with great humor.  He implored the graduates to stay driven and focused on jumping into their chosen careers right away.  He also gave them a goal of taking 365 days to focus on themselves; getting a job, establishing their career path, and pursuing the American Dream.  Then he asked them to put an appointment in the calendar on their phones for September 25, 2016, to remind them to start giving to others as they progress on their path of good citizenship.

In total, Senator Jackson addressed 151 graduates, 1437 of their guests, and 30 faculty and staff that evening.
