Charleston Southern University conferred degrees upon almost 600 graduates May 3 at North Charleston Coliseum. The Class of 2014 included the first graduates of the master of science in organizational management and the bachelor of arts in music and worship leadership.
Harvey L. Galloway, executive director of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina Foundation, was the guest speaker. He also received an honorary doctor of public service from the university. Galloway has 43 years of experience with Blue Cross Blue Shield of S.C., and its owned companies. His work to improve healthcare in South Carolina was recognized in 2008 with the Palmetto Patriot award.
In his address to the graduates, Galloway said, ďI hope you will begin to think of your life as writing your very own story. You need to remember that your time is limited, donít waste it living someone elseís life. Donít be trapped by living with the results of other peopleís thinking. Donít let the noise of othersí opinions drown out your own inner voice, and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition each moment of your life, adding to your story.Ē
