At its undergraduate ceremony in May, Columbia International University honored Mrs. Eleanor “Jo” Cook, co-owner of Cook’s Pest Control, with the Doctor of Humane Letters Degree.

Mrs. Cook was honored for her life-long service to the cause of Christ and because she embodies the core values of CIU.

As guest speaker of the commencement ceremony for 245 undergraduate, graduate and seminary students, Mrs. Cook spoke about the sufficiency of God in her life. She told graduates to enjoy the “exhilarating adventure of living out God’s plan for you as you help people know, love and obey Jesus Christ.”

Columbia International University (formerly Columbia Bible College) was founded in 1923 in Columbia, S.C. CIU educates people to be pastors, missionaries, teachers, counselors and more, so they may better serve the Lord in ministry, on the mission field or in the marketplace.

Mrs. Cook’s daughter-in-law and Secretary-Treasurer of Cook’s Pest Control, Lyn Cook, has served on the Board of Trustees for CIU since 2009.

In 1950, Mrs. Cook partnered with her late husband John R. Cook to assume responsibilities of the family business that Mr. Cook’s father, John Lewis Cook, began in 1928. Cook’s Pest Control has been the recipient of various national awards, including the Better Business Bureau award for Business Ethics and the National Pest Management Association’s Pinnacle Award. The Pinnacle award is given to a highly select group of companies that meet the highest standard for exemplary practices in the pest control industry.
