CCF Welcomes New Board Members
We are happy to announce that three new members have been elected to our board of directors. Harold Cheatham, Bryant Smith, and Linda White were recently elected to fill unexpired seats on the fifteen-member board.
In making the announcement, CCF executive director Bill D’Andrea said, “We’re really happy
to add people like Dean Cheatham, Bryant and Linda to our board. They have all been long-time
residents and have been very active in the life of our community. They add not only diverse
talents but also a real passion to serve.”
Cheatham was the founding dean of Clemson University’s College of Health, Education and
Human Development and is professor emeritus at his alma mater, Penn State. He earned his
master’s degree from Colgate University and his Ph. D from Case Western Reserve University.
He is a published authority on multicultural counseling theory and the psychosocial development
of African Americans in US higher education.
Smith is president and CEO of Smith Consulting And Networking, a consulting and training firm
offering guidance on recruiting, training, and retention to individuals, businesses and educational
institutions. He also serves as editor-in-chief of My Click Urban Voice, a news and narrative
platform for people who live, work and want to connect with urban lifestyles.
White served as Clemson University’s first head volleyball coach. She also served as the
University’s associate athletics director for community relations. White was a founding member
of the City of Clemson’s Sports Council. She earned degrees from North Greenville College,
Winthrop, and Clemson.
The Clemson Community Foundation was launched in 2013 as a project of Leadership Clemson, and was inspired by a combination of the success of community foundations in other cities and the unmet funding needs in the Clemson area. As a community foundation, we work to provide philanthropy and establish long-term sources of funds for local needs, such as charitable nonprofit organizations in the Clemson area.
