Wessinger, Jo


A lifelong South Carolinian, Jo Addy Wessinger joined the Honors College in 2009 after three 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 for the State Budget and Control Board.  She managed the Employment, Affirmative Action, 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 reading, community involvement, sports and singing. From Motown to Handel, in her car, kitchen, choir or concert hall, this soprano/alto has baffled Dennis, her husband and high school sweetheart, with her ability to know the lyrics to every song she sings.
