Lander University sets spring commencement for May 3

Lander University will award degrees to 364 graduates when it conducts its spring commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 3, in Finis Horne Arena on the university campus. It will be one of the largest graduating classes in Lander’s history.

The commencement speaker will be U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who was appointed by Gov. Nikki Haley in 2013 to finish out the two years remaining in the term of Jim DeMint, who resigned from the position to join the Heritage Foundation.

Scott, a native of Charleston, graduated from Charleston Southern University in 1988 with a degree in political science. He has been in government service since 1995 starting with his election to the Charleston City Council, where he held office for 13 years. In 2009, he was elected to the S.C. House of Representatives and in 2010 he ran for Congress from the 1st District and won.

In the Senate, Scott is a member of the committees on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; Science and Transportation; Energy and Natural Resources; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship. He is also on the Senate’s Special Committee on Aging.

Lander’s commencement program will begin at 11 a.m.
