Danny McNease, a 1974 University of Southern Mississippi graduate, presents a check for $50,000 to Southern Miss President Martha Saunders Monday. The donation is a gift honoring McNease from Rowan Companies Inc., a drilling and manufacturing business in Houston where McNease recently retired from after 34 years of service, including as its CEO. The gift will be used to support the president's economic development fund. (Southern Miss Marketing and Public Relations photo by Steve Rouse).
