2,300 to receive degrees from SC university

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - About 2,300 undergraduates receive their diplomas during commencement exercises at South Carolina's College of Charleston.

Two ceremonies are being held Saturday at the Cistern in front of the administration building on campus.

The speaker is Marco Cavazzoni (kav-ah-ZOH'-nee), the vice president and general manager of final assembly and delivery at Boeing Co. in Charleston.

Boeing last year selected Charleston for a $750 million aircraft assembly plant. The investment is the largest single industrial investment in state history.
