    Episode 20-Ray Lattimore Commencement Address

    Episode 20-Ray Lattimore Commencement Address

    Ray Lattimore entered Southern Wesleyan University with dreams of his own, but realized a potential far beyond what he could have imagined. Lattimore is founder and president of Marketplace Staffing Services, a Greenville-based company that has grown into the Carolinas, Georgia, Virginia and Ohio. He is a community leader, serving on numerous boards and foundations. The first in his family to enter college, Lattimore came to Southern Wesleyan on a basketball scholarship. But his dream was to go pro in basketball. What Lattimore learned at Southern Wesleyan was invaluable – moving him beyond the basics academically and preparing him for a career as well as shaping him spiritually. He realized going pro in basketball would not have allowed him to reach his fullest potential. He is now serving people all over the Mid-Atlantic and South. “SWU changed my life, taught me how to love and brought me closer to Christ,” Lattimore said, adding that the chapel services he attended impacted his life and brought him closer to God.
