SC Common Good Awards

The Common Good Awards recognizes state leaders for their hard work in Advancing the Common Good in South Carolina. Five individuals were honored at a reception on January 19th at City Art in Columbia. One of the greatest highlights of the evening came when the Live United Award was presented posthumously to The Honorable Reverend Clemanta Pinckney. His sister Johnette Pinckney-Martinez, along with her husband Dexter, was there to receive the award on behalf of his family.
