Governor’s Awards in the Humanities. Yesterday, S.C. Humanities held a luncheon in honor of four distinguished new recipients of the Governor’s Awards for the Humanities:
- Anne Cleveland, director of the Charleston Library Society;
- Bobby Donaldson, historian and educator;
- Cecil Williams, celebrated South Carolina photographer;
- and Sara June Goldstein, literary arts advocate and member of our team at the S.C. Arts Commission.
We’re so proud of Sara June’s exceptional work and that she received this honor. Here she is with Kim Shealy Jeffcoat (left), chairwoman of the S.C. Humanities Council; and Tommy Windsor (right), director of boards and commissions in the governor’s office.
We’re down for this always. Just gonna leave this right here.
