At this summer’s national convention of Grambling University alumni, an award was given for the first time to honor a distinguished alumnus for contributions to his community, education, church and the university itself.
The first-time Grambling Distinguished Alumnus Award was presented to Jennings resident Johnnie Adams, who graduated from Grambling in 1960. Since then, Adams has served as a local principal and educator, active member and deacon of Union Baptist Church in Jennings, and a leader in his community. He also founded the James Ward Credit Union. “He is always working — trying to help the young kids around town,” says Alumni Chapter President Clarence Prudhomme, who gave the award to Adams and his wife, Vera, during a recent service at Union Baptist.
