104th Commencement - 10 a.m.

Paul Leonard will be the 2015 SMC Commencement Speaker on Saturday, May 9, 2015. Leonard is a man moved by a generous and loving spirit. Author of Where is Church and Music of 1000 Hammers,
Inside Habitat for Humanity, and the soon to be released When the Spirit Moves, Paul Leonard’s professional career has spanned the two disparate worlds of nonprofit ministry and big business.
With degrees from Davidson College, University of Chicago’s Divinity School, and Emory University, he first served at Trinity Presbyterian Church and then founded a non-traditional church that focused on community action and service. He left the traditional ministry to work in city housing, and was later recruited by the John Crosland Company. He became the company’s president in 1984. After the company was acquired by Centex Real Estate Corporation, Leonard was appointed as its Executive Vice-President, responsible for the company’s southeast region. After retiring from Centex, Leonard was elected to the Board of Habitat for Humanity International; he served as Chairman of the Board from 2001 to 2003 and was employed as the Interim CEO from 2004 to 2005. Today he is a member of the US Council for Habitat for Humanity International. Leonard is currently the Chair of the Board for Crosland Interests, LLC, a real estate development company in Charlotte, NC, and is a Director for Crowder Construction. He also organized Charlotte Fair Housing and served as its first President. He is very familiar with United Methodist higher education, having served on the board of our sister United Methodist school, Pfeiffer University.
