Southern board member wants Grambling in SU System

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Southern University Board Member Tony Clayton is pushing a controversial proposal to move Grambling State University under the umbrella of the Southern University System.

Clayton said Louisiana could save money by going forward with the move. He said he'll recommend a study to be done on the plan at the board meeting on November 23rd, a day after the annual Bayou Classic between the school universities.

Grambling is currently under the University of Louisiana System.  In this proposal the school would keep its own identity.
