Highest honors are awarded to students who earn a semester grade point average of 3.85 or better out of a possible 4.0. Students with a 3.65 to 3.84 average are awarded high honors and students whose grade point average is 3.5 through 3.64 are awarded honors.

2 from Beaufort graduate from Coastal Carolina

More than 700 students, including two from Beaufort, were eligible to participate in commencement ceremonies at Coastal Carolina University on Dec. 17, 2019, marking the last class of the decade to graduate from CCU.

“Realize this day marks only the beginning of continued education. You have not yet reached the pinnacles of understanding, self-awareness, or wisdom. As said by Albert Einstein, ‘intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.’ Stay hungry for knowledge,” Daise said.

Daise is known by many as “Mr. Ron” on Nick Jr.’s award-winning and internationally broadcasted television program, “Gullah Gullah Island,” for which he and his wife Natalie performed in starring roles.
