Mississippi Valley State Receives Donation

Mississippi Valley State University has received a generous donation from a former student.

A $25,000 gift has been made by Tim Lampkin to the university’s alumni association to assist business students.

Lampkin founded Higher Purpose, a non-profit dedicated to building community wealth among black residents. The organization supports business owners from a variety of places.

Although Higher Purpose is based in Clarksdale, its reach extends far beyond the city.

Using his nonprofit platform, Lampkin has supported economic development projects in the Mississippi Delta, gaining national attention.
