Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) is proud of the service of Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, HGTC President, as she led the Council of Presidents for the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. President Fore was presented with a personalized silver plate before she adjourned the final meeting this month and completed her term.
As Chairperson of the Council, Dr. Fore convened the meetings that serve as a forum for discussing mutual needs, concerns, and issues facing public postsecondary education in the state.
“Higher education institutions are in good hands due to the dedication, leadership, and vision of my fellow presidents in the colleges and universities of South Carolina. It is our mission to forge a strong sense of unity and purpose to promote the value of a postsecondary education for the economic, social, and cultural development in our state,” said Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, HGTC President.
The Council of Presidents is comprised of the chief executive officers of each South Carolina public institution of higher education. The purpose of the Council of Presidents is to advance collaboration, cooperation, innovation, and efficiency across the state’s system of higher education.
Leadership of the Commission rotates annually between the state technical colleges and the four-year universities.
