SU fundraising gets ‘Movin on Up Award’ from United Way
The Capital Area United Way awarded Southern University the “Movin’ on Up Award-Large Business” at its recent Employee Campaign Coordinators Recognition Program held at the Baton Rouge Little Theater.
The “Movin on Up Award” is given to an agency or business that has improved its giving the greatest amount on a previous year. Southern’s faculty, staff and students contributed around $20,000 or about $7,000 more than during the previous fundraising period.
Southern’s project coordinators were Travel Manager and Program Administrator Linda Roberson and Assistant to the Dean of the College of Engineering Janifer Peters.
Winning the award is a “big deal,” Roberson said. “With us (SU) being the size we are and with what we have been through financially, Southern raised a good amount.”
The money raised by Southern and the other contributors are used to support over 120 programs that help thousands of people in the 10-parish Capital Area.
