Clemson to celebrate Founder’s Day April 7

April 7 is no ordinary Tuesday. On that date, Clemson will commemorate the 127th anniversary of Thomas Green Clemson’s death, which set forth the chain of events that led to the eventual founding of Clemson University.

Clemson University’s Tiger Brotherhood will host its traditional Founder’s Day service at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Pendleton.

Among the speakers will be Clemson President James P. Clements and historian Jerry Reel.

Following the service, attendees can visit Thomas Green Clemson’s gravesite.
