NEW ORLEANS — Southern University received $1.6 million in support including a $1.1 major gift from alumnus Antonio “Tony” Clayton and a $500,000 grant from Capital One, both presented during the SU System Board of Supervisors meeting Friday in New Orleans.

With his recent gift, Clayton, a member of the SUS Board of Supervisors and a longtime SU supporter, will fund the construction of “Clayton Championship Plaza,” and establish an endowed chair, that will support athletic programming, and benefit the marching band and music department.

“The Clayton Championship Plaza gives us something to be proud about. This permanent legacy separates us and puts on another level of greatness. We appreciate it very much,” said Director of Athletics Roman Banks.
