In Pebbles by Garette Hunter

Broadcast legend William “Bill” Reid Rollins has donated $200,000 to Livingstone College to support the genesis of a communications program.

Rollins, former chairman and chief operating officer of Suburban Radio Group, visited the Salisbury campus on April 30 with his attorney, Mark Prak. During a business luncheon in the Hilliard Room, Rollins presented Livingstone President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins Sr., with a check for $200,000. The gift was due to a proposal submitted by Dr. State Alexander, vice president of communications and public relations. Alexander worked for Rollins when he owned WPEG FM in Charlotte.
