Dr. Tawana Scott, North Greenville University's (NGU) associate vice president for adult and graduate academic services, will be the keynote speaker for NGU's graduate school and online undergraduate December commencement on Friday at 1 p.m. on the Tigerville Campus.

After successfully navigating the in-person fall semester, the University will follow the same protocols for commencement. Providing as safe an environment as possible to the community and guests remains the University's highest priority.

“In many ways, Dr. Scott is the face of our programs at the Tim Brashier campus. She has made a difference in so many lives there, as a mentor, as a professor, and as an encourager,” said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. “We are so excited to have the opportunity to learn from her as she addresses our graduates in these important academic programs.”

Scott serves as associate vice president of adult and graduate academic services.  She brings much experience to the faculty and students she serves. Before NGU, she was a pastor's wife and worked as a teacher at Teacher's Hands Academy in Orlando, Fla.

She is married to H. Anderson and they have four adult sons, Luke, Paul, John David, James, and she is a grandmother to three  grandchildren. 

Scott earned an Associate of Arts degree from NGU, a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Georgia, a master's degree from NGU, and her doctorate from Union University in Jackson, Tenn.

NGU's Physician Assistant Medicine program will hold its white coat and hooding ceremonies at 10 a.m., and its traditional undergraduate commencement at 6 p.m. also in Turner Chapel on Friday. Lisa Van Riper, NGU's consultant for public affairs, will keynote the 6 p.m. ceremony.
