After completing the Certificate program, Mamie Hopkins Boyd was promoted to the position of Dean of Records/Registrar at Greenville Technical College in April 2006.

"Completing the Certificate in Higher Educational Leadership provided me with an excellent foundation in educational leadership and administration in the community college. After being in the program, I received a promotion to a higher-level administrative position. The success of the Higher Educational Leadership Program is directly attributable to the awesome leadership of Dr. James Hudgins and the highly professional and competent professors that are part of the program."
