Encouraging others to pursue their dream for higher education is something that
Dozier Cannon of Darlington does with pride.
Cannon graduated with honors from Florence Darlington Technical College in May with three Associates Degrees in Applied Science in Business Management, Accounting, and Marketing. A 2003 graduate of Darlington High School, Cannon first set out for just one degree.
“I give all my achievements to God and family,” said Cannon. “It was a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve my goals. I really didn’t think I was going to get one degree, much less three with honors and four certificates.”
In addition to his degrees, Cannon was named to the President’s List and Dean’s List several times for his outstanding grades.
Cannon owns his own company, Dozier Lawncare Service. “My studies in business management at Tech really paid off for me. I want to encourage others to pursue their dreams, reach for the stars and go to college.”
