LeMoyne-Owen College received a $250,000 donation from the Shelby County Commission at the school’s President’s Gala, which was held Nov. 10 at Memphis Cook Convention Center.

County Commissioners Mickell Lowery and Willie Brooks made the presentation to president Andrea Lewis Miller and board of trustees chair J. W. GIbson.



The money will be used for various things, including scholarships.

“Absolutely wonderful,” Miller says. “It will do a lot of good.”

The scholarships will be used for need and merit based students, she says.

The President’s Gala, which drew about 700, celebrated the 50th anniversary of the merger of LeMoyne College with Owen College.
