Alabama State University's President’s 9-Year-Old Son Makes Donation to ASU at Inaugural Ball (39 hits)

The nine-year-old son of Alabama State University's President made a donation during the recent ASU Inaugural Ball, which celebrated the swearing-in of his father as President at the venerable institution of higher education.

Quinton T. Ross, III, will tell you that he is a proud Hornet; and at the University’s recent Inaugural Ball, he put his “money where his heart is.”

Affectionately known as “Third,” Quinton took to the stage before a gathering of more than 800 guests to make his donation of $150 to his beloved Alabama State University.
“I decided to donate $150 because my Dad became President last year when the school was celebrating its 150th birthday,” said the younger Ross.

Dressed in a debonair cream and black tuxedo, Quinton was the mirror image of his father during the University’s premier event celebrating the inauguration of ASU’s 15th President. He charmed the crowd with his speech that spoke of his father’s love for his family and for his alma mater.
Following his presentation, the Ross family was all smiles as they posed with Quinton III’s “big check.”

“This was truly a surprise for me,” said President Quinton T. Ross, Jr. “I was so proud that he was able to stand before a crowd of that size and have the poise to be able to make a speech. He’s already warned me that if I ‘mess up,’ he’s ready to step in as President. I really love that he shares my love of this great University that has done so much for me and my family.”
The donation from Quinton III was part of a grand total of more than $1 million in donations raised during the inaugural initiatives.
