Cedric Adderley has been selected presiden of the South Carolina Governor’s School in Greenville.

 

Cedric Adderley has been named the fourth president of the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities in Greenville.

A Columbia, SC native, Adderley comes to the Governor’s School from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, where he served as Dean of the College.

“Dr. Adderley is just the right president for the Governor’s School for the Arts at this point in its development,” Dick Elliott, vice chairman of the board of directors, said.

“Retiring president Bruce Halverson has done a wonderful job steering us through the recession, recruiting gifted students from all over South Carolina, and setting high standards for artistic and academic achievement,” Elliott said. “Dr. Adderley has the experience, talent, and motivation to build on that success and carry us forward.”

Prior to his appointment at Capital University, Adderley served as associate vice president for academic affairs at Claflin University. He taught at Benedict College in Columbia and North Carolina A&T State University and provided leadership for the bands programs.

Adderley taught in South Carolina public schools for several years and served as director of various musical ensembles.

An accomplished composer and music educator, Adderley earned his Ph.D Musical Arts in composition from the University of South Carolina with additional studies at Harvard University and DePaul University.
