PENDLETON --- Anderson Mayor Terence V. Roberts will deliver Tri-County Technical College's spring commencement address Friday, May 10, at 6 p.m. at the Anderson Civic Center.
Approximately 559 students will be awarded degrees, diplomas and/or certificates during the College's commencement. In addition to families and guests of the graduates, alumni and other friends of the College are invited to attend the ceremony.
Mayor Roberts became the first African American mayor of Anderson when he was elected in 2006. A lifelong resident of Anderson, he has owned his insurance agency for more than 21 years. He has been recognized for his leadership, community service, and a passion for education, particularly during the school readiness years.
He served as former chairman of the Anderson Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Anderson YMCA. Additionally, he was the former chairman for New Foundation Children and Family Services, a non-profit organization, and the Montessori School in Anderson.
Currently, he is working again with the Anderson Chamber of Commerce, in addition to the Salvation Army, Innovate Anderson, Imagine Anderson, United Way Community Impact, Appalachian Council of Governments, Ten at the Top Board, Anderson School District Five Business and Industry Board, Municipal Association of South Carolina, and Anderson Mayor's Committee on Disability. Explaining his reason for involvement, he refers to a passage in a Vernon Jordan book that says, "If you are not at the table, then you are not represented."
