Montgomery-based Division 12 Consulting partnered with local businesses to donate $250,000 worth of lighting and equipment to Tuskegee University.

The electrical and LED lighting, lighting parts, electrical ballasts and bulbs will be used on campus to enhance the student experience and increase safety when students return in the fall.

“Our focus on student safety and campus enhancement projects will benefit from the generosity and support by Division 12 Consulting,” said Dr. Charlotte P. Morris. “We are always grateful when small businesses find creative ways to support the university. As a minority-owned business, we can see that their efforts align with the university mission. We appreciate their support.”
