Reverend Dr. Solomon Jackson, Jr. won the lottery in 2009. Jackson has since given Morris College the largest donation they have ever received from an individual: $10 million. Monday, he helped break ground on a new building on campus.
The building will be called the Solomon Jackson, Sr., William McKinley Bowman, Sr., Raymond Carolina Physical Plant, named after Jackson’s father and two of his spiritual mentors.
Rev. Jackson says, “For everything I do I try to acknowledge God, for where He leads me, there I will go,”
