BR businessman donates $30,000 to Southern-Baton Rouge

Local businessman Carranza "C.J." Guidry recently donated $30,000 to the Southern University-Baton Rouge campus.

Guidry, the owner of Rover Services, LLC and the popular “Jaguar Journal” sports radio talk show, has donated over $60,000 to the Baton Rouge campus in the past three years.

He said a portion of the donation is specifically designated to assist in providing scholarships for graduates from East Baton Rouge Parish public schools.

Chancellor James L. Llorens said the donation is “greatly appreciated” because it will be used to build the enrollment at the Baton Rouge campus.
