SUNO Awarded $10,000 Grant From AT&T Louisiana

The donation is to assist students through scholarships.

Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) was awarded a donation of $10,000 from AT&T Louisiana.

The donation is to be used to assist students through scholarships.

“We have a long history of working with the Southern University System and the SUNO Foundation, and we are proud to work with them to help meet the expanded needs in the community that have resulted from the pandemic,” said David J. Aubrey, Regional

Vice President, AT&T Louisiana. “Students face many new challenges in this environment, and we are committed to support the SUNO Foundation’s efforts to expand opportunities for students in the area.”

SUNO recently returned to good standing after being put on probation, in 2019, by the accreditation agency for financial struggles.

“Our success is due, in part, to cooperation from generous community partnerships such as AT&T who value our service to our students and invest in our efforts. These funds will provide much-needed scholarship opportunities to deserving students to receive a quality education,” said Dr. James Ammons, Interim Chancellor, Southern University at New Orleans.
