Saying goodbye to a member of the College of Charleston family is never easy – but sometimes it’s cause for celebration.

Such is the case for the 20 employees who’ve retired from the College between January and June 2022.

“We are grateful to all of our employees who have retired over the past six months, and we salute them for everything they have done to make the College a better place,” says Ed Pope, vice president of human resources at the College of Charleston. “They certainly deserve a happy and relaxing retirement, and we wish them all the best in the next chapter of their lives.”
