A lifelong South Carolinian, Jo Addy Wessinger joined the Honors College in 2009 after
several decades in state government, most recently as Senior Management Auditor with
the State Budget and Control Board’s Office of Internal Audit and Performance Review.
Her expertise includes management reviews, risk assessment, consulting, personnel
management, and special investigations. Prior to that, Jo was a Human Resource Manager
and was responsible for the Employment Section, Affirmative Action function, and the
Recruiting and Benefits Sections.
When she’s not coordinating Dean Lynn’s calendars or managing renovation projects in the SCHC’s historic buildings on the Horseshoe, Jo enjoys sports, time with family and friends, community involvement and singing. From Mozart to Motown, in her car, kitchen, choir or concert hall, this soprano has baffled Dennis, her husband and high school sweetheart, with her ability to know the lyrics to every song she sings.
