A charitable act by a 1976 Dillard University alum caused some campus leaders to pay it forward.

Cynthia M. A. Butler-McIntyre, the national president of Delta Sigma Theta, recently donated $50,000 to Dillard for student emergencies at a concert celebrating the inauguration of Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough.

According to the school website, the donation motivated other Greeks to do the same.

(President Kimbrough is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.)
