AMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University has received a newly endowed scholarship from the Hammond-Ponchatoula Sunrisers Rotary Club.
A $30,000 commitment, the endowed scholarship will provide a minimum $1,000 annual award to a deserving Southeastern student who is a resident of Hammond or Ponchatoula and is involved in community service.
“This is an exciting day for the Hammond-Ponchatoula Sunrisers Rotary Club. Over six years ago our club made a commitment to Southeastern to underwrite an endowed scholarship that will benefit a deserving student from our community each year,” said Rotary President Deek DeBlieux.
“That commitment has been fully-funded, and we are excited to be a partner with Southeastern. I want to thank all of our members and past presidents for their commitment and leadership in making this gift a reality.”
