Senator John Drummond


On October 5, 1999, a special celebration was sponsored by the PTC Foundation in honor of SC Sen. John Drummond’s 80th birthday.  Many political dignitaries, community leaders, and PTC employees were in attendance and spoke of Drummond’s commitment to the college and to the state of South Carolina.

According to the event program, Drummond, who died September 3, 2016 at the age of 97, “was an early leader in the push for technical education and remains a strong proponent.”  The proceeds of the reception were placed in the Drummond Endowed Scholarship Fund which is still in existence today to benefit PTC students.
