Cianna Jackson, Class of 2016

Cianna Jackson was born in Bermuda and immigrated to North Carolina and has been there since 2001. She attended Saint Augustine’s University where she obtained her Bachelors of Arts in Visual Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design in 2016. Shortly after her graduation, Cianna was employed by her alma mater as a Digital Design and Content Specialist, where she was tasked with redesigning and launching a new official university website. She is currently the webmaster for that website. While at Saint Augustine’s University, Cianna has had many opportunities to serve in various capacities. She has been in charge of university-wide communications, helped redesign and reinstate a university mascot, worked on the team that brought about the first SAU mobile application and is currently the administrator of said app.

Having a desire to contribute her talents outside of work, Cianna has assisted her church community, starting with St. Paul AME Church with choir participation and graphic design and then with Vision Church on the Communications Ministry and First Impressions Ministry prior to COVID.

Along with design, Cianna’s passions lie in the arts. In her personal time, she enjoys drawing and painting. She hopes to advance her skills to include animation in the near future.

Cianna is happily married to her husband, Zechariah Jackson, whom she met during her time at Saint Augustine’s University.
