USM president skypes with elementary school class after generous donation

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - President of the University of Southern Mississippi Rodney Bennett participated in a Skype chat with an elementary school class in California that recently made a donation to the school.

The skype session took place in the President's Conference Room inside the Administration Building.

This class recently made a donation to the Oseola McCarty Scholarship Fund after reading about her story online.

Dr. Bennett was so moved by their gesture that he wanted to thank them personally and also find out more about their school, classwork.
