President and Mrs. Tisdale Honored for
20 Years of Service to Claflin University and Beyond
Orangeburg, S.C. – Claflin University President Dr. Henry N. Tisdale and his wife, First Lady Alice Carson Tisdale, know what it takes make a difference. Under their visionary and transformative leadership in higher education for the last 20 years, Claflin is now recognized as one of the nation’s top liberal arts institutions.
For their contributions to Claflin University, the state and the surrounding communities, the Tisdales were honored with a resolution from the South Carolina General Assembly on Tuesday, April 8, at the State House in Columbia. The resolution was sponsored by state Sen. John W. Matthews Jr. of Orangeburg.
“I think people who make contributions to our community ought to be recognized, and clearly, when you look at his service to the Orangeburg community, Dr. Tisdale has made a difference,” Sen. Matthews said. “A lot of people don’t make a difference, but he and his wife have made a difference in the community.”
