Two Winthrop University trustees have been re-elected, and two new trustees have been tapped to join the school’s governing board.

Lawmakers confirmed this week Donna Glenn Holley, Ashlye Wilkerson and Randy Imler as members of the Winthrop Board of Trustees. Last month, the Winthrop Alumni Association elected Scott Middleton to replace James “Jimmie” Williamson, who left the board to serve as president and executive director of the S.C. Technical College System.

Winthrop trustees serve six-year terms.

Holley and Wilkerson are current board members and were re-elected by the General Assembly. Imler was selected to replace retiring trustee Bob Thompson, who will leave the Board of Trustees in June after 19 years of service.

Imler is the executive director of the Catawba Regional Council of Governments and lives in Tega Cay.

His involvement at the university includes serving as the conductor of the Winthrop University Collegiate Choir and the Jazz Voices. He graduated from Winthrop in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in music and again in 2000 with a master’s degree.

Imler also holds an M.B.A. and D.M.A. from the University of South Carolina.

Holley, from Columbia, joined Winthrop’s board in 2004. She works for the South Carolina Legislative Council.

Wilkerson, a 2005 Winthrop graduate from Columbia, joined the board last year. She is a Ph.D. candidate at USC and works as an instructor at USC Upstate.

Middleton is a 1981 graduate of Winthrop’s business administration program. He will serve the remaining four years on Williamson’s term on the board.

From West Columbia, Middleton is president and CEO of Agape Senior Services and serves on the Health Care Management Program Advisory Board at Winthrop’s College of Business Administration. His son graduated from Winthrop in 2012 and his daughter is a current student.
