Coker Inauguration Week is Exciting
The planners of the Coker College 16th President Inauguration have to be smiling from ear to ear tonight as their nearly week-long planning is producing fantastic event after fantastic event. Minutes ago a full house at the Elizabeth Boatwright Performing Arts Center gave a standing ovation to faculty, students, alumni and friends who staged an exciting, funny, musical, innovative PERFORMING ARTS SHOWCASE. Earlier today faculty and students presented panels and research that were well attended by students and colleagues. On Monday and Tuesday students presented academic research in poster sessions and in presentations.
Several months ago Dr. Robert Wyatt, Coker's 16th president, told the Faculty Senate his wish and goal was for the inauguration to showcase all things Coker. As we go through this week day by day he is able to watch this goal being achieved over and over. His theme for this event is Coker - Redefining Ready. Along the way he may be redefining inaugurations.
It is hard not to want to congratulate all those who were involved in the planning of this event and all those who are bringing together such masterful events. So -- Congratulations to the organizers and participants!
