BOLIVAR, Mo. — Jeff Jackson with Intel Corp. will be speaking about perseverance during the Southwest Baptist University College of Business and Computer Science’s Psalm 15 lecture at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, in the Jane A. Meyer Recital Hall in the Casebolt Music Building on the Bolivar campus.

Jackson graduated from SBU in 1991 with a B.S. in computer science and mathematics and received an M.S. in computer science from Purdue University in 1994. He has been employed by Intel Corp. for 18 years, holding technical individual contributor roles as well as leadership positions in both product and research groups. He currently manages a team of research scientists in Intel's research and development labs. He received the Intel Achievement Award, Intel's highest employee award, in 2005 for his work and currently holds 10 patents.

Psalm 15 lectures are held once each semester, with a guest lecturer speaking on one of the eight character traits that should be hallmarks of students and graduates of the College. Those traits were identified based on Psalm 15.
