SC State University receives generous donation from alumnus
South Carolina State University received a generous donation from an alumnus.
Thurman D. Shuler, an Orangeburg, S.C native and 1957 graduate of S.C State University, donated $15,445 to the university.
The money is to help graduates enroll in a graduate program of their choice.
“If there is anything I can do to support my alma mater, I will. I received a tremendous amount of support as a student here, and I hope to give back to those in need. As I always say, my blood runs garnet and blue,” said Shuler.
And in 2007, Shuler donated $30,000 to S.C. State.
S.C State president, James Clark said he is appreciative of Shuler’s contributions over the years.
