The pastor and motivational speaker known as the "hip hop" preacher was the keynote speaker Thursday night as Columbus State University hosted its Legacy Celebration Banquet.

Eric Thomas, an internationally renowned author and educator, headlined the event at the Lumpkin Center.

The celebration also recognized 10 outstanding community members for their accomplishments in community outreach, civic engagement and women’s leadership.

“It celebrates all people for types of acts of service from heroic events to diversity initiative to just standing being who they are," said Johniqua Williams, the Coordinator for Diversity Programs and Services.

Thursday night’s banquet capped off a day long diversity conference at CSU that included workshops on diversity and inclusion.
