Nominations were received via the Brookgreen website and reviewed by a community-wide committee.
Recipients are: Zenobia Harper, Marilyn Hemingway, Kelvin Waites, and Steve Williams (Georgetown County); Tracy Bailey, Veronica Gerald Floyd, Reverend Cheryl Moore Adamson, and The World Community Magazine (Horry County); and Issac Bailey (State).
