“I am so thankful that as I’ve heard testimony after testimony—from the students who have interacted with you, to your friends who have come to support you—that one thing is completely true: that you are a man with a vision,” said Senator Scott. “Thank God we have a new visionary to lead the Charleston Southern family to new heights. My verse for you, sir, is Ephesians 3:30, ‘That God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or imagine.’ And I pray that we receive a bountiful harvest because you will be asking for things that will be hard for others to imagine because your leadership is a blessing from the Almighty to all of us who claim the Charleston Southern family as ours.” 

Senator Scott is a proud graduate of Charleston Southern University.
