Governor Phil Bryant has been named chair-elect of Jobs for America's Graduates.

Bryant will become the JAG Chair of the Board on January 1, 2015, and will take over for Governor Jack Markell of Delaware.

Bryant said at the special luncheon in Washington D.C. “I've seen the remarkable things our Jobs for Mississippi Graduates organization has accomplished for at-risk youth in our state.
