PEARL RIVER, LA. - Former Louisiana State Senator A.G. Crowe today vowed to dedicate $25,000 of his state salary if elected as Secretary of State this fall to a scholarship that will encourage students to think about the importance of voting. 

“I will put the first $25,000 into a scholarship fund and work to raise up to $250,000 annually through private matching contributions in hopes of heightening awareness of the importance of voting for high school seniors who are eligible or about to become eligible to cast their first vote,” said Crowe. 

This is not the first time Crowe has dedicated his state salary to promote a cause.  He donated his State Senate salary for the first year and a half to assist Road Home constituents in his district following Hurricane Katrina.  He purchased air-conditioners for the elderly and handicapped using his state salary, and he also used the public funds he earned to purchase meals for the needy. 

Crowe says if elected he will form a scholarship committee comprised of educators and community leaders to create and manage the statewide pro-vote scholarship project.  Crowe will invite each public and private high school in Louisiana to nominate one senior essay that will to be submitted to and judged by the scholarship committee. The top 5 essays will win a 4-year scholarship at Louisiana university and will be required maintain a 2.5 GPA. 

The scholarship, proposed by Crowe, will be awarded from a graded essay contest with each applicant writing “Why I Should Vote.”  Said Crowe, “My goal is to enhance the level of importance of voting among our younger generation while educating students about the serious issues of the day.  The Secretary of State has a Voter Outreach Division that must begin to use innovative techniques to encourage voting, especially among our younger voters.  This contest for a scholarship will help jump-start programs that the division can begin to use as tools to generate higher voter turnout and better voter contact.” 

Senator A.G. Crowe wrote the legislation establishing The Louisiana International Deepwater Gulf Transfer Terminal Authority, a public-private partnership port that will lead to 20,000 good, high-paying jobs for Louisianians and boost the states' economy. He has a unique history of creating jobs both as a private businessman and as a legislator.
A.G. Crowe is a man of great integrity. His love of our state, it’s people combined with his experience, dedication and leadership would make him the perfect choice as our next Secretary of State. James E. Fitzmorris, Jr. Former Lt. Governor & Louisiana Statesman
As the former coastal director for Plaquemines Parish, I worked closely with the legislature to help develop laws and fund projects to save our coast. Senator A.G. Crowe was on the forefront of this effort, always making himself easily accessible and using common sense approaches, which lead the way to some of the largest coastal projects in US history.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with A.G. in the legislature. As a businessman, he brought fresh new ideas to help grow and protect Louisiana businesses. As a dedicated Christian, he holds the record to this day for the highest voting record with the Louisiana Family Forum in support of family values over his 16 years of service. I am honored to endorse A.G. as our next Secretary of State.
“I am supporting A.G. Crowe for Secretary of State. He is "solid as a rock" in every area of his personal and professional life.”

A.G. Crowe is a man who I am honored to call my friend. When he was in the Senate, I worked with him on a number of pieces of legislation. He is a principled, hard-working, sweet man with an especially close relationship with God. He has been a wonderful example and mentor to me. Please consider him for Secretary of State.
