Giving Back after Graduation
Christopher Laird Floyd was one of USC's Palmetto College early graduates in 2013.
He recently established the Christopher Laird Floyd Endowed Scholarship Fund. Floyd and his parents, Michael and Charlotte Floyd, decided to establish the scholarship to "pass it forward" to the next generation of students.
When Floyd was a senior at USC, he was asked to speak on a discussion panel about his education. After the speech, he was hired on the spot by Becton Dickinson, where today he serves as lead business unit coordinator for BD Life Sciences - Preanalytical Systems. Floyd has been instrumental in establishing an internship program between USC Sumter and BD to help graduates find management positions.
