Emergency Responders
Grantham University welcomes members of the law enforcement community, firefighters and paramedics. These brave men and women who put their lives on the line each day deserve our recognition and admiration. Grantham University’s main campus, located in Slidell, L.A., was directly in the path of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Thankfully, through the help of federal, state and local law enforcement officials, all of our employees were safely evacuated. Whether responding to national emergencies, patrolling our borders, fighting crime or helping all citizens in need, all emergency responders are true American heroes. Welcome and thank you!
- Tom Macon, Chairman
