OnPoint on WACH Fox: The legacy of Dr. David Swinton

COLUMBIA, SC - On this week's OnPoint on WACH Fox we examine the legacy of Benedict College's longtime president.

Dr. David Swinton, who's credited with turning around the downtown Columbia school, will step down in June after 23 years in charge.

Swinton is set to retire June 30, leaving behind a legacy as a caring leader who guided the private, historically black college through a campus building boom, grew its student body and programs, and improved the community surrounding it.

Swinton was dean of Jackson State University's business school for seven years before becoming president of Benedict, where the New York University and Harvard University graduate leaves some big shoes to ?ll.
