Spring 2017 Commencement Speaker Announced

North Greenville University has tapped Mayor of Greer, South Carolina Richard "Rick" Danner as its Spring 2017 commencement speaker.

Since his election to the office of mayor in 1999, Danner has provided the Greer public with countless improvements to both the city’s economic and industrial sectors. Under Danner’s leadership Greer posted retail sales growth from $452 million in 2010, to just over $1.3 billion in 2015, increasing steadily each year.

According to the city of Greer’s webpage, The City of Greer Municipal Complex, which includes City Hall, the Police and Courts Complex and the 12-acre Greer City Park, opened in 2008 [under Danner’s leadership] and have redefined service and recreation for residents and contributed to the revitalization of Greer Station.”

As the longest serving board member of the Municipal Association of South Carolina, Danner has pioneered numerous bills for public benefit. A 2015 plan signed by Danner is set to provide a “city blueprint” for Greer leading up to its expiration in 2030.

The City of Greer also said, “The revival of the central business district has been paralleled by continued commercial growth along the Highway 29 corridor with diverse offerings for all members of the community.”

Approximately 358 undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degree candidates will be recognized individually during the ceremony at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, May 5 to be held in Melvin and Dollie Younts Stadium.
