It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of longtime Nicholls supporter and friend, Mr. Al Danos.
Mr. Danos will be greatly missed by the Nicholls community and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
The Nicholls State University community is mourning the death of business leader and longtime university supporter Al Danos, who died Friday, Jan. 23 at age 68.
A Larose native who helped expand his family’s oilfield service company Danos & Curole, Al was an avid supporter of higher education and a leader on the Nicholls Foundation Board. Most recently, he helped Nicholls raise more than $1.5 million in private donations to renovate the Mary M. Danos Theater, named in honor of his late wife in 2012. Al then worked closely with state Senator Norby Chabert to secure another $4.4 million in state funds to expand the renovations in Talbot Hall. In addition to helping the Nicholls music department achieve All-Steinway status, Al and Mary Danos also established an endowed scholarship at Nicholls for first-generation college students from South Lafourche High School and funded endowed professorships in education and nursing among other gifts.
“The Nicholls family will greatly miss Mr. Al Danos, a dear friend and generous supporter of the university,” said Dr. Bruce Murphy, university president. “Although he wasn’t a Nicholls graduate, Al believed strongly in the importance of the university and enjoyed attending events on campus and interacting with students. Al and Mary’s legacy will continue to influence the lives of future Nicholls students when they walk through the renovated Talbot Hall or attend an event in the state-of-the-art Danos Theater.”
