ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - Winthrop University’s new president says the school does not need a separate ceremony to mark his new job.

The Herald of Rock Hill reported (https://bit.ly/1N5WWHI) reported that Dan Mahony said he will not have a traditional “stand-alone” inauguration ceremony.

Mahony says the school should spend time and money on other needs for the school.

Winthrop held a weeklong inauguration ceremony last year for previous president Jamie Comstock. She was fired by the school’s board three months later.

The Herald later reported the school and the Winthrop Foundation had spent tens of thousands of dollars on the week’s activities for Comstock.

Winthrop will honor Mahony as part of its May 7 commencement ceremonies.
