Anderson new Craggy superintendent
Administrator returns to prison where career began

ASHEVILLE — Craggy Correctional Center has a new superintendent. William D. "Corky" Anderson, former superintendent of Hendersonville Correctional Center, was promoted and started work at his new post the first of August.

Anderson is no stranger to Craggy prison. That's where, in 1969, his correctional career began.

Correction Secretary Mack Jarvis said, "Corky Anderson has worked hard throughout his career and has always demanded the best from his staff and inmates. Craggy is getting a great manager."

Born in Cherokee County, Anderson graduated from Andrews High School in 1965 and attended Western Carolina University.

Anderson was promoted through the ranks from correctional officer to sergeant and lieutenant, becoming an assistant superintendent in 1975 at Haywood Correctional Center.

In 1987, he moved to Henderson Correctional Center and became superintendent of that prison in 1987.

Anderson and his wife, Brenda, have one son, 26-year-old Andrew who works for the Henderson County Sheriff's Department. u
