Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club Accepting Public Nominations

By Alan Armstrong for The Island Connection

Dr. Victor Agusta, the 2017 Angel Oak Award recipient. Dr. Agusta has served as a volunteer primary health care physician at the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic (BIFMC) since it opened its doors in 2008.

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 an 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 Feb. 13, 2019. The recipient will receive an honorarium of $5,000, 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. 19. Nomination information and forms can be found on the Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club website at
