Gifts That Make a Difference
For Tom and Louise Gresham, an investment in Delta State University is an investment in the Mississippi Delta; it’s this philosophy that led the couple to establish an endowed scholarship at Delta State University.
Recently, the Greshams provided a major boost to their scholarship fund with the addition of a groundbreaking $301,000 gift. The endowment was established to assist Mississippi students in DSU’s College of Business and Aviation that display financial need.
A well-established businessman as the longtime president of Double Quick, Inc. and member of Gresham Petroleum Company, Tom feels strongly about the importance of education. “Delta State is absolutely vital to the Delta.” Louise echoed her husband’s sentiments. “We know that Delta State provides a good quality education, and we want to help people get their college degree from Delta State and stay here in the Delta,” she said.
