The Annual Morris College Fall Harvest Parade will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m. on South Main Street and will proceed toward (and up) North Main Street, turn left on College Street and end on the Morris College campus.
This year's Parade Marshal is Reverend Dr. Vandroth Backus, pastor of Monumental Baptist Church, Florence, SC. Backus, a Montford Point Marine, was the first black police officer to serve in the Florence Police Department. The retired educator and Morris College alumnus is a recipient of several honors and awards including the key to the City of Florence and most recently, the Congressional Gold Medal.
