Six Receive Prestigious Humanities Awards

Oct 30, 2019

Six people across South Carolina recently joined the ranks of recipients of two prestigious state awards; the SC Governor’s Awards in the Humanities and the Fresh Voices in the Humanities Award.

In 1991, SC Humanities started honoring people who have made a career working in the humanities with the Governor’s award. In 2018, the organization started honoring those, just starting to make an impact in the field, with its Fresh Voices award. Executive Director Randy Akers shares what the organization looks for in each year’s winners.
