Zackeus Johnson becomes student advisor at Southern University

Former Alcorn State University Student Government Association President, Zacheus Johnson, has started his career in leadership.

Johnson accepted the academic advisor position at Southern University and A&M College Thursday, May 19. Johnson will be responsible for helping freshmen, pre-nursing students correctly follow their schedules so that they can graduate in four years. He will also instruct them on time management, building resumes and networking.

The position fits Johnson well because his goal has always been to play a significant role in the lives of students.

“It feels great to be an academic advisor because I’ve always wanted to be a leader,” said Johnson. “Since my undergraduate years, I’ve always had the desire to make a positive impact in students’ lives by helping them stay on the right path in life and their careers.”

Johnson credits the leadership he received during his time as a student at Alcorn for his ability to take on his newest task.

“My advisors at Alcorn prepared me for the role that I am in today. I am successful because of their motivation and belief in me as a student.”
