Lessane/Office Mgr. 1195 AmeliA St. • OrAngeburg, SC 534-3301 • FOunded in 1907 Little Known Fact QUESTION: Who was Ko W. G. Donma? ANSWER: Ko Wle Gbu Donma was a faculty member at South Carolina State from 1928 until 1951. He taught poultry science in the agricultural program. He also taught German and math. Donma was a key figure in the establishment of the Edisto Federal Credit Union in 1936. It was one of the first, if not the first, African-American credit unions founded in South Carolina. Donma was born in Monrovia, Liberia in about 1897. He did not know his exact date of birth because of the absence of records in Liberia. He came to the U. S. as a child. In 1923, he enrolled at Pennsylvania State College—now Penn State University. Twenty years after his passing, a faculty committee recommended that the new administration building be named in his honor.
