Ousted SC board member offers $5M gift to school

A University of South Carolina benefactor ousted from the school's Board of Trustees is shrugging off the snub and pledging $5 million for a new aerospace research center.

A University of South Carolina benefactor ousted from the school's Board of Trustees is shrugging off the snub and pledging $5 million for a new aerospace research center.

Gov. Nikki Haley removed Wall Street financier Darla Moore two weeks ago and replaced her with a campaign donor, saying the board needed a new perspective.

The university's business school is named for Moore, who has pledged $70 million to USC over the years. She has served on the board as the governor's appointee since 1999.

Moore's announcement came a day after roughly 150 students and alumni rallied at the Statehouse to call on Haley to reinstate her. Haley made clear she would not.

Moore says she doesn't need a title or position to speak out. She just needs a voice and her vision.
