    FLORENCE, S.C. – Former South Carolina Gov. David Beasley will speak at the eighth session of the Non-Profit Leadership Institute at Francis Marion University, Friday, Feb. 17.

    The institute is a seven-month training program for leaders of non-profits. Twenty-eight participants from across the state are members of this year’s class.

    Funded initially with multi-year grants from the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation, the institute now receives major support from FMU, along with a grant from the PSARAS Foundation. 

    Beasley will be the lunch speaker. He served as governor from 1995 to 1999. Born in Lamar, he graduated from Lamar High School. He also studied microbiology at Clemson University and earned a law degree from the University of South Carolina. Beasley served on the FMU Board of Trustees from 1988 to 1991.

    Friday’s session will be conducted by Dr. Morris J. Blachman, clinical professor in the Department of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Science, and assistant dean for continuing medical education and faculty development at the USC School of Medicine. He has been a management consultant for more than 25 years.

    Fred Sheheen, former commissioner and executive director of the S.C. Commission on Higher Education, is director of the FMU Non-Profit Leadership Institute.
