On Friday, May 4th, Trident Technical College graduated its largest class in its 48-year history. The total of 674 graduates reflects the continued growth of the college. TTC President Dr. Mary Thornley decided to have two of the many outstanding TTC grads as speakers instead of bringing in guests. Leaders of the schools organizations selected Faith Callum, who was receiving an associate degree in Radiologic Technology, and CIC's Justin Morris, who was receiving an associate degree in Culinary Arts Technology. According to a story on the graduation by Brenda Ridge in the Post and Courier, "Morris, 25, who is a head line cook at Fulton Five restaurant, graduated from Summerville High School in 2004 with a 1.9 grade point average. 'The thing I worked hardest at was not working hard,' he said. 'A couple of months later, I joined the Marine Corps, and a few friendly drill instructors managed to change all that. It didn’t take long for me to realize that hard work and dedication were the tools for success and that my parents were right.' He enrolled at Trident in 2010 and graduated Friday with a 3.85 grade point average."
