GRAMBLING - Willis-Knighton Health Systems has donated $205,000 to Grambling State University.

Grambling President Frank G. Pogue says the funds will be used to help attract high-level faculty for the university's health care programs.

Willis-Knighton is the region's largest health care firm.

Pogue says the total could grow to $325,000 with additional contributions by the state.

Willis-Knighton Health Systems President and CEO James Elrod says the donation will create three endowed professorships in the health sciences.

The professorships are being named after Sen. Gregory Tarver, for a professorship in nursing education; Shreveport Councilman Joe Shyne, for a professorship in nursing practice, and Nila Wilhoite, for a health administration professorship.
