The Tates/Tutwiler Endowment supports need-based scholarships and helps us live our mission of making an ESA education available to all talented students in Acadiana. When the Smedes-Jardine family donated the land for the Cade Campus, they stipulated that ESA should educate the less fortunate in the local community. Today, earnings from the Tates/Tutwiler Endowment support ESA’s ability to award financial aid. Nearly ⅓ of ESA students are receiving financial assistance this year. With the support of ESA alumni and the continuing efforts of Dr. and Mrs. Tate and Mr. Tutwiler, the endowment has exceeded $1 million. Help us continue to grow this fund!
