— Coastal Carolina Univer­sity held two com­mence­ment cer­e­monies on Dec. 14, and more than 700 stu­dents were el­i­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate. Cer­e­monies were held at 2 and 6 p.m. in the HTC Stu­dent Recre­ation and Con­vo­ca­tion Cen­ter. Bar­bara Blain-Bel­lamy, mayor of Conway, S.C., was the speaker.

Among those el­i­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate was Alexis DiMarzo, a po­lit­i­cal sci­ence ma­jor from Ch­ester, earn­ing a Bach­e­lor of Arts.

Blain-Bel­lamy’s mes­sage was one meant to in­spire ac­tion among the grad­u­ates. “What will you do with the new you?” she asked. “Lead­ers like you rise. They come to know the way. They go the way. They don’t hes­i­tate to show the way to oth­ers.”
