CU’s Clements to speak at Apple Festival luncheon

Staff Report

WESTMINSTER — Dr. James P. Clements, president of Clemson University, will be the guest speaker at this year’s annual Apple Festival luncheon at 1 p.m. Sept. 11 at Westminster Baptist Church in the social hall.

Tickets are $15 each and are available from any member of the Westminster Rotary Club, at the Westminster Chamber of Commerce or at the door.

Clements became Clemson University’s 15th president on Dec. 31, 2013. He is also a professor in the School of Computing, College of Engineering and Science at Clemson.

Under his leadership, Clemson has reached several milestones — the largest campus development initiative in university history, a record number of student applications with the strongest academic profile ever; and a record-breaking year in fundraising, with nearly $200 million raised in private gifts since Clements joined the University.
