History Makers: Dr. Beverly W. Hogan

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation honors women who are innovators and have made a difference in the Jackson Medical Mall Community.

This week, the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation highlights Dr. Beverly W. Hogan.  Dr. Beverly W. Hogan is the first female President of Tougaloo College, and Chair of the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation’s Board of Directors. Dr. Hogan has not only been of significant value to the Foundation, but also in the Jackson community as a board member of Bancorp South, Sanderson Farms, and RAND’s Gulf States Policy Institute.

With more than 25 years of governmental leadership experience, Dr. Hogan uses her influence to continually improve Higher Education and Civic Responsibility. During her tenure at Tougaloo College, she has incorporated programs to help the mentally impaired, battered women, welfare recipients, and the homeless.

Adding to her extensive track record, Dr. Hogan is the founder of the first psychiatric halfway house in the state of Mississippi. She has authored and published works on topics such as “The Dissonance Analysis of the Viet Nam War,” “Comparable Worth—the Challenging Issue of Pay Equity,” Jobs and Economic Growth,” “Public Policy Implications of AIDS in the Workplace,” “Higher Education and Civic Responsibility” and “Gender and Race” as a chapter in a textbook, Leadership and Service, published in 2008.

Thank you Dr. Beverly W. Hogan for your contributions towards improving communities through social justice and higher education.
