Joshua Putnam, Class of 2011, was honored by North Greenville University on October 31 at a chapel service. Putnam was recently elected to the South Carolina House District 10 seat. He is the youngest representative in the South Carolina legislature. Putnam replaces Representative Dan Cooper who retired in April.
Putnam earned his bachelor of science in marketing. While at NGU he was president of the freshman class, president of the student body, a resident assistant, and resident assistant coordinator. He was a member of the South Carolina Student Legislature where he served as Chair of Ways and Means in the House and Lt. Governor. He was on the NGU cross country team and was an intern for Congressman Jeff Duncan.
“See what God can do through us in this world if we make ourselves available,” said NGU President Jimmy Epting to the NGU student body during the chapel service. “We need more folks serving Him in this world.”
Epting offered a prayer for Putnam, asking God’s blessing on him as he begins his new work in the state legislature.
