HATTIESBURG – Garland “Buddy” Braswell, an independent sales contractor in Point Clear, Ala., has been elected to a three-year term on the board of directors of The University of Southern Mississippi Foundation in Hattiesburg, Miss.

Braswell received a Bachelor of Science in marketing management from Southern Miss in 1961. He is a member of the Eagle Club and Kappa Alpha fraternity.

Braswell and his wife Kay, also a Southern Miss graduate, are members of The USM Foundation Honor Club. They established the Buddy and Kay Honeycutt Braswell Scholarship to be awarded annually to a student majoring in accounting or marketing from Baldwin County, Ala.

The USM Foundation operates under the direction of a 39-member board of directors, who are all volunteers. Thirteen new board members are selected each year, while 13 end their three-year term. The USM Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation that serves as a fiduciary of private funds donated to Southern Miss, which is the only dual-campus university in the state, with an enrollment of more than 16,000 students.

The Braswells reside in Point Clear, Ala.
