Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club Recognizes Outstanding Students

By Sam Reed

The Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club recognized two outstanding students from the Charleston Collegiate School on February 6. Karla Aguirre and Mia Blunt were named as “Youths of the Month” by the Club. Both girls are exceptional students, and also volunteer throughout the area. Karla hopes to become an early childhood educator and Mia plans to become a physician.

Jim Hughes, a vice-president at Goodwill Industries, discussed the many aspects of his organization, and pointed out that 90 cents of every dollar raised by them goes into their programs. They try to employ as many disabled persons as possible, and currently about 75 percent of their employees are disabled. They are the state’s largest employer of the disabled.

The Club has two dinner trips planned to hear the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. The Club is also working on the April 27 Bohicket Marina 5K-10K Run on Seabrook Island, as well as a special gala scheduled for mid-May.
