Through our annual fundraiser, we have managed to raise over $80,000 for our endowed scholarship funds! With the distributions from our endowments, plus direct distributions, we have provided over $50,000 of direct support to our LSU scholarship recipients. This could not happen without the hard work and support of everyone involved! THANK YOU!
