Sherman, who has spent much of his career mentoring entrepreneurs, spoke to business students at Mississippi State University in March.
A fan of free-market ideology, Sherman said his priorities are health care, education and jobs, in which he plans to make improvements through public-private partnerships.
Though he touts himself as a job creator, he said he has yet to invest in companies based in Mississippi. The extent of his job creation inside the state is the hundreds employed since 2000 by Ward’s Hope Village, which currently employs 40.
Sherman said he wants to bring jobs to the state using its existing industry — bringing a corn chip plant to the Delta where they’re already growing corn, for example.

Mississippi is lowering the standardized test score that a student must achieve to become a middle school or high school math teacher.
The state Board of Education voted to approve the change Thursday. It takes effect immediately, and could mean that 89 students previously unable to earn licenses will now be awarded them.
