The University of Louisiana at Lafayette honored some of its distinguished donors during a reception Thursday night at the Petroleum Club to thank those who give $10,000 or more to the university.
"What's been the edge for us is having generous donations, generous donors, to help with professorships, scholorships, to help fund research to help fund other program at the university," says UL President Dr. Joseph Savoie. "It is keeping us moving forward, making progress. Without the support of these donors we would be in a lot worst shape than we are now."
This year's donors combined to bring in more than $4.6 million to the university.
