JACKSON, Miss., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jackson State University and BancorpSouth, Inc. (NYSE: BXS) jointly announce the availability of the new BancorpSouth/ Jackson State University branded MasterCard debit card.

"The new card provides another way for Jackson State supporters to show their pride and support for the university they love," said JSU President Carolyn W. Meyers, Ph.D. "We're delighted to have BancorpSouth as one of our corporate partners."
