“I have always liked being a part of something good, on a winning team,” remarked Royilyn Derr. “And one of the best teams I have ever been involved with is the Business Department at Sandhills.”

A North Moore High School graduate from Robbins, Royilyn began working at the college 24 years ago in the Bookstore. She received an associate degree in Accounting from Sandhills and a B.A. in Business Administration from St. Andrews Presbyterian College.

Royilyn is responsible for many of the behind the scenes processes involved in purchases made by the college. She processes purchase order requisitions, enters vendor information into the system, and verifies invoices.

She and her husband, Ted, have one son, Matthew, and a new grandson, Maverick Franklin Scott.

When she is not loving on Maverick, Royilyn enjoys gardening, cooking, planning and hosting themed parties, and concerts. Her competitive nature emerges when she plays corn hole, horseshoes, and ping pong.
