Hollingsworth named next president at Piedmont College
Dr. Danny P. Hollingsworth of Morristown, Tenn., formerly of Marshall County and the son of Dale Hollingsworth of Potts Camp and the late L.D. Hollingsworth, has been named president of Piedmont College in Demorest, Ga.
Hollingsworth takes over the reins of the college from Dr. W. Ray Cleere, who announced last year that he would retire in May 2011 after 16 years as president.
Hollingsworth, who currently serves as executive vice president and chief financial officer of Carson-Newman College, will officially assume the role of president in June, following his approval by the Piedmont Board of Trustees on March 5.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to become a part of such a fine educational institution as Piedmont College,” Hollingsworth said. “I hope to build upon the college’s many successes to enhance its national reputation and to better serve the citizens of northern Georgia with higher educational opportunities to improve their lives.”
Cleere thanked the members of the committee that oversaw the eight-month, national search for a new president, and said he was “extremely pleased” with Dr. Hollingsworth’s appointment.
“With his background and experience, and his knowledge of this part of the country, he is an excellent choice to continue the progress that is underway at our institution,” he said.
Hollingsworth comes to Piedmont with some 36 years experience in business and higher education. Before joining Carson-Newman College as Dean of the School of Business in 2008, he taught business and accounting at Mississippi State University, where he served as director of the School of Accountancy and was interim Dean of the College of Business and Industry. From 1987 to 2000, he taught at Baylor University, serving five years as chair of the Department of Accounting and Business Law.
A graduate of Potts Camp High School, Hollingsworth earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and an MBA at Mississippi State University, and he holds a doctor of business administration degree from Memphis State University.
At Carson-Newman College, Hollingsworth was responsible for all financial areas, including the offices of advancement, athletics, communications, church relations, finance, human resources, information technology, physical plant and student affairs. He and his wife, Elizabeth, have three college-age sons, Jake, Clark, and Luke.
“My wife and I are looking forward to becoming an integral part of the community as we serve Piedmont College,” he said.
Piedmont College is an independent liberal arts college of about 2,700 students with campuses located in Demorest and Athens, Ga. Founded in 1897, the college offers undergraduate degrees in 32 major areas, master’s degrees in education and business, and doctoral degrees in education.
