SU Celebrates 1890, Raises Scholarship Funds with Discounted T-Shirts

Baton Rouge, La. – The Southern University System is celebrating its 125th year as an 1890 Land-Grant Institution this year.

One of the goals of marking this milestone is to set up a scholarship fund in memory of Justin Morrill, the father of Land-Grant System in the country.  In April, a wellness walk was held in commemoration of the 125th anniversary. At the time, the t-shirts for registered walk participants went for $18.90.  In other to increase scholarship funds the t-shirts are discounted to $15.00 each.  You can get one for a friend as a souvenir, or make a donation in any amount to the Justin Morrill foundation.

To please an order, contact Dr. Doze Butler via email at or visit for full detail of 1890.
