John Chappell will graduate with three degrees

Last season when USC senior captain Mike Boynton, Jr., finished his degree in three and a half years, USC Head Basketball Coach Dave Odom couldn't remember another player graduating in 3 years in his time as a head coach...

This December he has another first - seniors John Chappell and Carlos Powell will finish their degrees in three and half years as well - graduating on Dec. 13.

USC's graduation, at 3:30 pm on Monday, Dec. 13, will be held most appropriately in the Colonial Center. U.S. Senator Lindsay Graham will act as the commencement speaker.

Chappell, a 6' 10 center from New Berlin, Wisc., will graduate with THREE DEGREES AND A MINOR. His degrees are in: International Business (USC's program is ranked No. 2 in the country), Marketing and Finance. He has a minor in Spanish. Chappell carried a 3.9 grade point average into his senior year.

Powell, a 6' 7 forward from Florence, S.C. and USC's leading scorer and rebounder this year, will receive his degree in Sociology.

Both will begin pursuing another degree during the second semester.
