Attorney Keith B. French, a Jackson native and Jim Hill High graduate, donated custom uniforms to Jim Hill High School’s girls and boys basketball teams on January 12th during a surprise ceremony in the school’s gymnasium. The uniforms are Public Figure Clothing Brand originals designed by brand owner Rickey Robinson, a fellow Jackson native and Provine High Alum. Both men have also sponsored and designed athletic apparel for JSU Head Coach Deion Sanders and the JSU Football Team.

“It means everything to give back to this school. Jim Hill is the place that shaped me, and West Jackson is the place that raised me,” French said. “So, I really want to remind the students that this is where it starts. It’s the culture and roots of Jim Hill that teach them to be people-oriented, not property and things-oriented. That’s what I want to show these kids so they can pay it forward when they graduate and enter the world.”

Robinson has also donated custom Public Figure Clothing Brand uniforms to Callaway, Provine, and Murrah’s athletic programs. “Before I left, I always wanted to come back and be that kind of individual that gives back because I remember when other celebrities came back to our school and gave back,” Robinson said. “That motivated me to become the man that I am now.”

Jim Hill High Principal Bobby Brown thanked the men for their generous donation to his scholars. “We really appreciate the energy you have. It’s very inspiring and motivating for our community.” Principal Brown also reminded us that Jim Hill is “the best! We’re better than the rest! We are the mighty, mighty Tigers!”
