South Carolina’s governor is set to speak at Bob Jones University.
The Greenville-based school announced earlier this week that Gov. Henry McMaster would address the Bob Jones University Public Policy Organization on Sept. 5.
The forum, which begins at 6 p.m. in Stratton Hall near the university’s Welcome Center, is free and open to the public. The governor will take questions afterward.
McMaster, the former lieutenant governor, entered office in January when former Gov. Nikki Haley was selected by President Donald J. Trump to serve as ambassador to the United Nations.
Prior to serving as governor, McMaster served as chairman of the S.C. Republican Party and attorney general of South Carolina. He was also the first United States attorney appointed by President Ronald Reagan. He has also served on the state Ports Authority Board of Directors, the S.C. Commission on Higher Education, the Palmetto Health Foundation Board, and the S.C Policy Council.
McMaster, a Republican, recently launched a campaign for re-election next year.
