20 CCU graduates earn $5,000 Trustee Award
Coastal Carolina University student recipients of the $5,000 bonus Board of Trustees Award, given to graduates who earn their degrees a year early, plan to use the money to pay down student loans, enter graduate school and get a head start on their careers. This is the first class that signed up for the accelerated degree program established by CCU's board of trustees in 2014. The program is open to all first-time freshmen entering CCU. Twenty graduates received the award for completing the program.
