Ingle receives "Ambassador of Peace Award"

Coastal Carolina University President Ronald R. Ingle was presented the "Ambassador of Peace Award for Vision and Courage" from the Louis Gregory Bah' Institute on Oct. 21.

According to the institute's Peace Fest Committee, the award was presented to Ingle for his leadership in creating an environment for healing between the races through the upcoming visit of the Amistad to Georgetown and for reinvigorating the dialogue between black and white with the Amistad theme of "Roots to Reconciliation."

The Freedom Schooner Amistad will be docked at Georgetown Landing Marina Nov. 3 to 17. More than 30 community events, which emphasize area history and culture, have been planned in Georgetown and Horry counties as part of the visit.

The Louis Gregory Bah' Institute, located in Hemingway, was established in 1972 and provides inspirational, educational and material resources to promote racial unity and harmony.

Ingle has served as Coastal's president since 1993, when the institution became an independent public university. He joined Coastal in 1988 as vice chancellor of academic affairs.

Before coming to Coastal, Ingle held faculty and administrative positions at the University of South Carolina, The Ohio State University, Kennesaw College and South Georgia College.

A native of Moncks Corner, S.C., Ingle earned a bachelor's degree in English from Wofford College, a master's degree in higher education administration from Florida State University, and a Ph.D. in psychology from The Ohio State University.
