University of South Carolina president Harris Pastides and his wife have sold the Columbia home that they lived in when Pastides was the dean of USC’s Public Health School.
But don’t panic. The popular president – who lives on campus in the president’s house – is not going anywhere, a USC spokesman said Friday.
Property transfer records show Pastides sold the house on Holliday Road in northeast Richland County, near Sesquicentennial State Park, for $363,500 on May 26.
To keep Pastides on the job, USC’s trustees have offered the 63-year-old a “retention bonus” of $300,000 in July 2018, and bonuses of $350,000 every year from July 2019 until he steps down.
