by: University Relations

Fred WorthyDorchester County Council has appointed Fred L. Worthy, distinguished professor of computer science at Charleston Southern University, to the board of directors of the Trident Regional Pathways to Excellence Board.

The board governs the Trident Regional Education Center, one of 12 regional centers established by Governor Nikki Haley’s Personal Pathways to Success initiative. The centers are designed to connect students, adult learners, parents, educators, employers and community members with information, resources and services needed to achieve success. The initiative focuses on programs such as STEM, science, technology, engineering and mathematics; and the ACT Workkeys, a job skills assessment system.

“I am currently working with the other board members planning an opportunity fair to bring high school educators, business and industrial leaders and university educators together for the purpose of letting educational leaders know the pressing needs of industry in South Carolina,” said Worthy.

Originally a physics professor, Worthy introduced the first computer class at the University in 1969, teaching FORTRAN. He also taught the first standalone course in computer programming in 1979. In the 1990s CSU established a Center for Computer Integrated Manufacturing in a joint program with IBM.

Worthy has been at Charleston Southern since 1968 and holds an AB from Colorado State College and an MAT from Colorado State University.
