​“ ... I’m excited about continuing the mission to inspire, motivate and recognize character excellence in Orangeburg County. Character does matter! Character  is the sum of our thoughts and actions. It matters because it's who we are; and we are the change we want to see in the world. But this isn’t something that can be done alone.  We are a community only as strong as those that support it.  We continue to assess needs, focus on a viral awareness and implement strategies to help cultivate an environment that is a catalyst for change and a resource to help people help themselves. We should all want to continually improve our character such that it is embedded in our households, community and everything we do.”

 "We're growing and making  a difference; but we have a lot of work yet to do!  I hope you'll join us as we work with all segments of the community to make Orangeburg County a premier place to live, work, learn, shop, and play."

Thanks for your support!
