May 1, 2017

Dear Colleagues:

This Friday, May 5, 2017, will mark a significant event in the life of our university as Founding President David Bancroft Johnson will be inducted into the South Carolina Hall of Fame during a ceremony to be held on our campus, in McBryde Hall. The Board of Trustees of the Official S.C. Hall of Fame will honor posthumously D.B. Johnson for his many contributions to South Carolina.

I want to personally invite you, as members of our campus community, to the induction ceremony to be held at 5 p.m. in McByrde Hall, with a reception following at 6 p.m. in Tuttle Dining Room. The public is invited to this event, but who better than our campus community members to show support for a man whose visionary leadership established the institution that connects us all.

Winthrop’s first classroom, the Little Chapel, also will be open from 4-7:30 p.m. for tours and an exhibition. D.B. Johnson memorabilia will be displayed in McBryde at the induction ceremony.

Please take a moment to let us know you will attend by sending an email to rsvp@winthrop.edu.

I hope you will participate in this important chapter in our university’s history.

IN THE HEART OF THE CAROLINAS
