CONWAY, SC - More than 445 students were eligible to participate in Coastal Carolina University's summer commencement program on Aug. 9. F. Eliza Glaze, Ph.D., a CCU history professor and the 2019 HTC Distinguished Teacher-Scholar Lecturer, gave the commencement address.
Glaze spoke to students about success, saying that it is about more than finances. "We all need to earn enough to live, or even better, to establish some financial stability for ourselves and our loved ones. But even more than that, success is about doing something that we love and that is worthwhile to all."
