The Southeastern Conference has made an incredible gesture of good will to LSU.
On Tuesday, it was announced that the SEC will be making a $100,000 donation to the LSU Employee Assistance Fund, which was set up last year to help faculty members who were impacted by the flooding in Louisiana last August.
According to The Daily Reveille, university officials recently approved the allocation of the money for schools in the conference which suffer emergency situations.
“On behalf of the LSU employees affected by the flood, I wish to thank Commissioner [Greg] Sankey and the members of the Southeastern Conference [for] their assistance,” LSU President F. King Alexander said in a press release.
“Though the flood is several months behind us, it remains very real to the thousands of Louisiana residents who remain in temporary housing with many months of recovery ahead.”
LSU was very appreciative of the donation which will provide assistance to those who need it most.
“We are fortunate to be part of a great league that cares about its member institutions in areas that go well beyond competition,” LSU Director of Athletics Joe Alleva said.
“This donation will go a long way in helping LSU employees who were impacted by the devastating flood continue to rebuild and restore what was lost last August.”
It’s always great to see conferences giving back.
Today we can all be proud to chant, “S-E-C! S-E-C!”
