BATON ROUGE – Gregory D. Inman, senior vice president of retail operations for Neighbors Federal Credit Union, has been appointed to LSU University College’s Advisory Board.
“From a young age, my parents emphasized the long term benefits of a commitment to academic excellence and the impact it would have on my future,” said Inman. “As a scholarship recipient, I know the value that earning a college degree provided me, and I’m thankful that going to college was not optional. Taking advantage of the opportunity to get a higher education is one of the greatest foundations a person can achieve, as it opens doors that otherwise may not exist.”
LSU University College’s Advisory Board is comprised of 26 business executives and community leaders. It is a strong and active board, and members participate in a number of activities and events, such as an Annual Meeting and Pigskin Preview hosted by LSU Football Coach Les Miles, the selection of University College’s more than 60 scholarship recipients and host/hostess to various LSU recruitment receptions.
“I am pleased that Gregory D. Inman has agreed to join the ranks of our University College Advisory Board,” said R. Paul Ivey, executive director of University College. “His involvement will offer a new perspective for this group, as we work in a cooperative effort to promote University College and to positively impact our students.”
“To be involved with University College and the guidance and direction they provide students regarding their educational plans and life goals is quite an honor,” said Inman. “To have this opportunity to be engaged with college students and speak into their lives at this critical time is something I’m really excited about. The decisions they make today will determine their future.”
