Columbia Honors CIU Alumnus
The city of Columbia memorialized Columbia International University alumnus Pete Cannon with the dedication of a city center parking deck in his honor.
Cannon, who passed away in 2010, graduated from CIU Seminary & School of Ministry in 1982. Cannon, a businessman with heart for ministry, was known in Columbia for his influence on economic development and for founding HIS International in 1991 – an outreach to the many international students who attend the University of South Carolina in Columbia. Today, HIS also has ministries on campuses in Charlotte, N.C. (University of North Carolina), and Blacksburg, Va. (Virginia Tech), as well as a volunteer service group in Boca Raton, Fla. (Florida Atlantic University).
