The Wilbur N. Daniel African American Cultural Center (WNDAACC) has named Kenneth Maddox, an APSU alumni, as its interim director.

Maddox will be standing in for the previous Director of the WNDAACC Henderson Hill who left APSU for the University of Toledo in December 2015.

A Nashville native, Maddox has previously worked for APSU as assistant director of housing and residence life.

Maddox also served as interim director of the WNDAACC from 2001 to 2006.

Maddox then moved to the private sector from 2006 to 2010 serving as director of residential life and housing at Alabama A&M.

“To be able to come back home and help the students of my alma mater is a really fantastic opportunity,” Maddox said. “I know how great a place APSU is, and I know that I was so glad that I chose this place as a student.”

A national search for Hill’s permanent replacement is currently underway.
