Southern board member stirs controversy
Louisiana could save a lot of money and Grambling State University would get more attention if Grambling became part of the Southern University System, says Southern University board member Tony Clayton.
He said Grambling would retain its identity, but would be governed by the Southern Board of Supervisors rather than the University of Louisiana’s board, Clayton said.
“Grambling is not a high priority in the UL system,” he told The Advocate. “They would instantly be a top priority in our system.”
