Southern University's Baton Rouge campus recently received a contribution of $100,000 from a local organization comprised of SU graduates who have retired from ExxonMobil.

The money will be used for scholarships for students who meet the required criteria, said Bonnie S. Jackson, the chairperson of the Golden Roots Annuitant Club.

The group held a ceremonial check presentation May 5, 2014, in the office of SUBR Chancellor James L. Llorens.

Members of the Annuitant Club raised $25,000, which was matched three to one by ExxonMobil. The funds will be available for students in January of 2015, Jackson said.
