Alumna Spotight: Paula Novacki, `14
Ever wondered what life after graduation will look like? Meet Paula Novacki!
The University of South Carolina brings people together in various ways. For Logan and Molly Hall, this is the place where they met and fell in love.
Logan and Molly were set up by a mutual friend while in school and their relationship continued after graduation. As any student at South Carolina knows, the historic Horseshoe is a living, breathing space that radiates the sense of home that people feel once they step foot on campus. This is a place Logan and Molly knew from the beginning of their South Carolina journey and their road led to the Horseshoe once again on July 29, 2016.
On that day, Logan was working in Recruiting for Gamecock Football and it was the last night before football season was in full swing. Both Logan and Molly went out for drinks in the Vista with friends. Once in the Vista, Logan received a call from his boss that he needed to go and move the golf carts used for campus tours on the Horseshoe for the next day.
Molly being a diehard Gamecock fan was up for this errand to help out with recruitment. From there they went to the Horseshoe and as they were walking up to the President's House, Logan got down on one knee and asked Molly to spend the rest of her life with him.
As students and now alumni, Molly and Logan have celebrated special Gamecock experiences from cheering on our football team at Williams-Brice, to going on the road for four bowl games to seeing Gamecock Men’s Basketball play in the Final Four and much more.
South Carolina brought these two together and both remain deeply connected to their alma mater. Molly serves as the chair-elect of the UofSC Alumni Association’s Young Alumni Council and Logan is the Assistant Director of Player Personnel for Gamecock Football.
These two alumni will always have a special reason to say, “Forever to thee.”
