BEAUFORT, S.C. (May 11, 2022) –  Deputy City Manager Reece Bertholf was awarded on May 6 an Executive Certificate in Public Leadership from the Harvard Kennedy School of Executive Education.

The classes were taught by Harvard faculty, and included diverse students from across the globe. “This is a prestigious program, and we’re proud of Reece and his accomplishments,” said City Manager Bill Prokop. “We support the continuing education of our staff, and this exceptional leadership program will be invaluable for the City of Beaufort.”

Bertholf said, “This was a tremendous experience for me, and I appreciate the City’s continued support. It was an honor to learn from some of the finest faculty in America, and to share ideas with my fellow classmates. I’m looking forward to building on this experience.”

Bertholf was named deputy city manager in August 2021. Previously, he was assistant city manager and fire chief. He joined the Beaufort/Port Royal Fire Department in 2001. He has an MBA from The Citadel and a Bachelor of Science from the University of South Carolina Beaufort.
