President Frank G. Pogue shares unexpected good news during this difficult economic time as United Way officials join to hear the report
GRAMBLING, LA – This is a difficult, challenging and troubling time financially for institutions and individuals, yet Grambling State University President Frank G. Pogue will present United Way officials with great news about the institution’s individual faculty, staff and student donations and pledges. “I can’t wait to see the expressions on their faces as we reveal what our community-conscious faculty and staff decided to do on their own,” said Pogue.
Though the amount of the donation will be unveiled at the university’s United Way closing ceremony on Dec. 5 at 12 noon, Michelle Tolar, United Way’s area development director, and Janet Durden, president of United Way of Northeast Louisiana, have been informed that they are in for some exciting news as Grambling State University once again shows how much the institution supports the Grambling, Ruston, Monroe and northeast Louisiana community organizations provided funding by the United Way of Northeast Louisiana.
The closing program will be held in the Doris Robinson Room of the Eddie G. Robinson Museum on the campus. Some of the university departments who have contributed a great deal and some of the largest individual contributors will be recognized.
United Way of Northeast Louisiana supports a wide variety of education, income and health programs, including the Boy Scouts of America’s Louisiana Purchase Council, Boys and Girls Clubs in North Central Louisiana and Northeast Louisiana, The Wellspring, OIC of Ouachita, Louisiana Methodist Children & Family Services, Med-Camps of Louisiana and Northeast Louisiana Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation.
