Florence-Darlington Technical College to hold its first president inauguration
FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - For the first time in a Pee Dee college’s 60 years, they are holding a president inauguration on Thursday.
Dr. Jermaine Ford is the Florence-Darlington Technical College’s fifth president and the first one to have an inauguration ceremony.
Ford originally took the role during the height of COVID-19, so the school did not hold a ceremony then. However, the college wants to do the ceremony now to “stress the importance of creating traditions,” a news release reads.
South Carolina Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette is set to speak at the inauguration, which starts at 10 a.m.
Florence-Darlington Technical College is also hosting several events this week for its 60th anniversary.
