ROCK HILL, S.C. – Health care administrator Scott Middleton ’81 will fill the unexpired term of a Winthrop University Board of Trustees member who resigned to lead the state technical college system.
James C. Williamson ’80, ’85, resigned from his Board of Trustees alumni representative position earlier this month. The Winthrop University Alumni Association’s Executive Board recently appointed Middleton, the founding equity owner and president/CEO of Agapé Senior Services, Inc., to fill the four years left on Williamson’s term.
“I am very pleased that Scott Middleton has agreed to serve as a member of the Winthrop Board of Trustees,” said Winthrop President Jamie Comstock. “Scott has been a loyal Winthrop alumnus over the years and is the past recipient of the Alumni Professional Achievement Award in recognition of his career accomplishments.
“He gives generously of his time, as a current member of the College of Business Administration’s Health Care Management Program Advisory Board, as well as his resources to ensure that Winthrop students continue to receive the same high quality education that led to his own career and life success. It’s exciting to have him join the board and serve the university in this new capacity.”
Founded in 2000, Agapé Senior Services, Inc., operates retirement communities, assisted living campuses, rehabilitation centers, nursing centers and hospice services throughout South Carolina, as well as a Transition Care Unit that provides intensive short-term therapy. His other closely-held businesses provide Agapé residents and other clients primary physician care, pharmacy and medical equipment.
Middleton, of West Columbia, S.C., is an ordained United Methodist Church minister. He served various churches for 10 years prior to 1994, when he began working as an administrator for Lutheran Homes of S.C., and managing six facilities. He holds a master’s degree in health administration from the University of South Carolina, a Master of Divinity from Emory University, and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Winthrop.
Middleton and his wife, the Rev. Evelyn Middleton, have two children. Their son, Greg, graduated from Winthrop in 2012, while daughter Sara is a current Winthrop student.
