Message from Anthony Keck



Today I'm pleased to announce that Deirdra Singleton has accepted the new position of Chief of Staff at SCDHHS beginning immediately. Deirdra skillfully served as the Department's General Counsel since 2000, and joined SCDHHS as an Administrative Hearing Officer in 1988. She earned her bachelor's degree from the University of South Carolina and her law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law. Her duties as General Counsel included advising senior management on key legal and regulatory issues and overseeing several critical Department areas, including the Office of General Counsel, Program Integrity and Internal Audits, Legislative Affairs and Communications and Reporting, Research and Special Projects .


As Chief of Staff, Deirdra will take an expanded role in the daily operations of SCDHHS and work closely with me to keep us focused on achieving the Department's strategic initiatives and objectives. Deirdra's institutional knowledge, astute judgement, and passion for service to others will continue to be an invaluable resource to me and the Department as a whole. Please join me in congratulating her and wishing her well in her new role.
