Hello Jaguar Nation:
Last night the Jaguar Nation continued its 2014 Centennial celebration with a sold out Scholarship Gala at L'Auberge Hotel and Casino.
R&B artist Ms. Regina Belle gave an outstanding performance and impressed the audience with the outpouring of love she showed for Southern University.
Thanks to all of our corporate sponsors and the dozens of individuals who contributed to the Gala and supported our Scholarship Fund. With the addition of funds from last night's Gala, we have now raised over $250,000 for the Scholarship Fund for present and future SU students.
There is still a lot to be done.
The Centennial is a yearlong celebration. I believe the Jaguar Nation can, and will, demonstrate to the world that we support our University and our students. If you have not done so yet, I urge you to consider making a contribution, and to make it an annual gift.
You can get information about gift giving by clicking on the GIVE icon on our SUBR.edu website.
Remember, every dollar contributed will help a student in need of financial assistance stay in school or provide a scholarship for academic achievers and other deserving high school graduates.
On this Good Friday, as Christians reflect on the sacrifice made for mankind and preparations to celebrate the joy of Easter Sunday, my wife and I wish you a Blessed Easter.
God Bless the Jaguar Nation.
