Human and Civil Rights Awards Luncheon

Each year, The SCEA honors human and civil rights heroes at an elegant luncheon. And every year, those heroes inspire us. On Saturday, March 30th, we will gather together again to do the same.
We will present four awards to South Carolinians who have been nominated by their peers and colleagues for their contributions to our community. Please see the links below for information on what awards are presented and how to nominate an honoree.
We are proud to recognize leaders who fought to change our society today, and for the future with this annual luncheon. Join us as we celebrate our past and rededicate ourselves to the unfinished task of creating a just society. We owe it to the children and young people we educate. We believe, as did Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., that people of conscience, acting together, can achieve "justice for all."
