THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University Athletics Department received a $60,000 donation from REV/REV Business as part of a five-year corporate partnership agreement with Nicholls Athletics. In 2023, $20,000 of the donation will be used to recognize the long-time support and generosity REV has contributed to its athletics department by offering naming rights to the academic classroom housed inside the Student-Athlete Academic Center. The remaining funds will be used for signage, in-game promotions and PA Announcements across football, basketball and baseball.
“The thing that is really unique about the partnership with REV is the fact that we have so many Nicholls alums who are working within the company, and for us to be able to see them come home to their alma mater is something that is so special,” said Hillary Charpentier, director of Colonel Athletic Association. “We see them at games and on-campus supporting the student-athletes across different majors and even stepping in to volunteer and help mentor them in the classroom. It’s just really special to have a local business that is supporting Nicholls.”
The REV Business Academic Classroom is a student-athlete study hall for all 350 Nicholls student-athletes. The space is affixed with 10 computers and desks, multipurpose tables and whiteboards, being frequently used for mental-health and life-skills events and programming with student-athletes.
“Today and into the future, we’re excited to see our commitment to higher education continue. As our company embarks on a new brand and a new academic partnership, it’s rewarding to see this happen with a fellow supporter of education and provider of a quality college experience right here in Lafourche Parish at Nicholls State University,” shared Peter Louviere, REV/REV Business CFO. “Sure, winning in sports is enjoyable, but at the end of the day, academic success is the main goal.”
“And for us at REV and REV Business, this partnership could not have happened at a better time as we begin to grow not just in Thibodaux but into other communities throughout South Louisiana; building fiber to homes and businesses – all with a local team,” continued Louviere.
