Dr. Ron Berry, dean of the College of Business, indicated that the organization has been a "great partner" for many years by providing annual scholarships to ULM RMIN students.
“We very much appreciate the support this organization provides to our students. Their scholarships help us attract and retain high quality students in our program and help introduce our students to the local financial services industry,” added Berry.
