When Grambling State University looked last fall to “significantly ramp up the university’s alumni affairs, friendraising and fundraising efforts,” it looked to a familiar face.
Last December GSU named Carolyn Collier as interim director of alumni affairs. A 1974 GSU graduate, Collier, the first Miss Grambling (1973-74) to actually be a Grambling native, has served in numerous positions for the school for more than 28 years.
The Lincoln Parish Library Control Board heard from a local author about the donation of her book, “31 Promise Day Prayer and Encouragement Journal for Parents and Caregivers of Autistic Children” when they met Wednesday afternoon.
