2017 Angel Oak Award Nominations Open

By Alan Armstrong for The Island Connection

Last year’s Angel Oak Award was presented to Shirley Salvo.

The Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club is soliciting nominations for its Angel Oak Award. The annual award was first presented in 2012 and recognizes a person who performs volunteer services which contribute significantly to the people and/or quality of life of Wadmalaw, Johns, Kiawah, and/ or Seabrook Island. The award is named after a historic tree on Johns Island which clearly represents the people, culture, and natural environment of the islands.

The recipient need not live on the aforementioned islands but the service noted for the award must have been performed on the islands. The recipient will be recognized at a banquet to be held on March 21, 2018. The recipient will receive an honorarium of $5000 which he/she can designate for assignment to a charitable organization servicing the islands. The recipient will also receive a memento and have his/her name inscribed on the Angel Oak Trophy which is permanently displayed on the islands.

The Exchange Club is seeking nominations from the public. The deadline for nominations is Oct. 20. Nomination information and forms can be found on the Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club website at Please contact Alan Armstrong at or 843.768.9252 if you have any questions.
