Former state Attorney General and unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate Henry McMaster is working for USC, helping fundraise and build alumni relations.
USC said Monday that McMaster has taken a $90,000-a-year senior advisors position, which he started last week. His first priority is helping the university raise roughly $25 million for a new law school, said Michelle Dodenhoff, USCs vice president for development and alumni relations.
Achieving our ambitious goals is a major challenge, Dodenhoff said. To reach our milestones, we need leaders who can help us raise funds and re-engage key alumni groups. Henry McMaster is an established and recognized leader who brings a wealth of experience and contacts with USC alumni, donors and friends. His assistance will be invaluable.
McMaster said Monday he is looking forward to the new challenge.
USC is a great institution and has a great future, and I look forward to having some small part in helping it, said McMaster, who received both his undergraduate degree and law degree from USC.
