Another familiar face has left the building.

After 16 years, Senior Manager Rusty Sox has retired from the South Carolina Arts Commission effective November 30. His expertise and leadership will be missed, as will his generosity and sense of humor. Sox had a hand in the success of nearly all agency programs, from managing the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Governor’s Awards for the Arts and the Cultural Districts program, to updating and implementing the strategic plan and streamlining grants processes. We wish him much success in this new phase of life!

Three staff members will serve as coordinators for counties previously assigned to Sox: Cathy Lee – Aiken, Edgefield and Saluda counties; La Ruchala Murphy – Abbeville, Greenwood and McCormick counties; and Harriett Green – Anderson County.
