Members of the community, faculty and students gathered at the Kenneth Monroe Transformation Center in Rock Hill. Keynote speaker Bishop Mildred "Bonnie" Hines encouraged instructors to "unlock" student's potential.

The Clinton College ensemble led the congregation of students, faculty and community members in the singing of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” Friday at the college’s 122nd Founder’s Day Celebration at the Kenneth Monroe Transformation Center on Saluda Street.

The event’s keynote speaker, Bishop Mildred “Bonnie” Hines of the Southwestern Delta Episcopal District, encouraged Clinton instructors to unlock the potential of all students.

“Clinton College, stand as a light on the mountaintop,” Hines said. “Stand as a beacon on the hill.”

The school raised $100,000 through donations from AME Zion churches statewide and from members of the community.
