Amber Jackson Inducted Into MEAC Hall of Fame

Former Bethune-Cookman and NPF great Amber Jackson was part of a five-member class inducted into the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference's Hall of Fame in ceremonies yesterday.

Jackson spent three seasons as a Lady Wildcat, helping lead her program to three consecutive conference titles and NCAA regional appearances. In that trio of campaigns, Jackson set every offensive program record and still holds school marks for batting average (.464) and hit (284), among six categories.

A second-round draft pick to the National Pro Fastpitch league in 2007, Jackson led the NPF in home runs and RBI in her rookie season and earned Player of the Year honors for her efforts. She was twice named an all-league honoree.

Jackson is now the head coach at Delaware State, staying in the MEAC, and earned the conference's Coach of the Year honor in 2016.

The five-member induction class was inducted in a ceremony yesterday morning and were honored during the conference basketball tournament yesterday, as well.

Jackson is joined in induction in 2017 by fellow Bethune-Cookman alum Rashean Mathis; Francena McCorory of Hampton; Robert Porcher of South Carolina State; and Tracy White of Howard.
