BATON ROUGE, LA (PPN)-Southern University was presented with a $1 million donation Tuesday morning by Raising Cane’s. The donated money will go to funding the university’s academic and athletic programs as well as the Human Jukebox Band. A portion of the donation includes an endowed academic scholarship.
“I’ve worked so hard selling chicken fingers and I love this community; Baton Rouge gave me my start,” Graves told reporters. “It’s just great to be in a position now to donate to such a great thing for our community, Southern University”, said Raising Cane’s Founder and CEO Todd Graves.
“The school needs scholarships quite a bit, so I want to be able to help support them, their athletics, and the jukebox band. They needed some new equipment, they needed some new uniforms. So, it’s the pride of Southern University, which is one of the prides of Baton Rouge. And so I’m just glad to be a part of it,“ Graves said.
