It was great to see Barry Cannada (left) and Senator Roger Wicker, both former presidents of the Associated Student Body at Ole Miss, discuss the extraordinary future of graphene in the nation’s economy. Barry, our attorney, and friend is with the global law firm of Butler-Snow in Jackson, MS and is a senior executive of CRU, the worldwide group that raises hundreds of millions of dollars annually supporting faith-based programs on campuses. He is also a member of the Advisory Board of the National graphene Association which is based in Oxford, MS.
Senator Wicker, originally from Pontotoc, served in the Mississippi State Senate after graduation from Ole Miss. He was elected to the U. S.House of Representatives in 2007 and today continues a distinguished career. Mississippi’s Senior Senator serves as Chairman of the Commerce Committee, is a member of the important Committee on Armed Services, Rules Committee, Committee on Security and Corporation in Europe and the Committee on Environment and Works.
I am honored to have the opportunity to work with both of these men.
