FOOTBALL PROGRAM RECEIVES GIFT

The Burroughs Law Firm has made a $45,000 donation to Coastal Carolina University's NCAA I-AA football program, scheduled to begin competition in fall 2003. Architectural designs are being drawn for a new on-campus football stadium and athletic facility which will be located at the corner of University Boulevard and Highway 544.

"I think that football will be a tremendous plus for Coastal, from the standpoint of community life," said H. Franklin Burroughs, owner of The Burroughs Law Firm. "Coastal football will have a big impact on Horry County and beyond. The benefits to Coastal are really going to be impressive. Alumni interest in the university will increase because of football and I am really excited about that prospect. The generation of positive energy from the football program is going to be felt throughout the entire campus and region."

Burroughs has been a trustee at Coastal since 1993, when the institution separated from the University of South Carolina. He has served the board as chairman and secretary, and as a member of the development and alumni affairs committee. Burroughs earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Coastal in 1984 and a juris doctor degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1987.
