Alumni Group Calls for the Ouster of the President of Grambling State University


Grambling State University president Horace Judson

James Bradford, head of the Grambling State University National Alumni Association, is calling on the University of Louisiana system of higher education to dismiss Grambling president Horace Judson. The alumni group claims that Judson has mishandled fundraising operations and had not consulted with other campus constituencies on spending initiatives.

The alumni group states that Judson created a new Black and Gold Foundation where donations to the university are funneled. But the foundation has not filed the appropriate federal taxation paperwork required of a nonprofit entity. And the alumni association contends that there is no accounting for how funds from the foundation are being spent.
