Edisto Beach State Park Staff Receives Service's Top Award
The staff at Edisto Beach State Park has been awarded a top honor from the South Carolina State Park Service.
Manager Susan Spell and her staff were presented the Director's Award
at the Park Service's recent annual managers' conference at Hickory
Knob State Resort Park.
The award is not presented each year.
"We present this award when it's time to recognize employees who have
particularly distinguished themselves in the way they exemplify the
values of stewardship and service that have been the guiding principles
of South Carolina's state park system since it was established more
than 75 years ago," said Phil Gaines, director of the State Park
"Manager Spell and her staff at Edisto Beach State Park
personify those principles each and every day, adding up to exceptional
effort and contributions to the preservation and presentation of this
outstanding park and all it has to offer to South Carolinians and
visitors from near and far," Gaines said. "This is a complex, diverse
park. Managing it so well is not an easy job."
Spell also was
recognized for her 20 years of service to the state. At Edisto Beach,
she leads a staff of 13 people who manage 1,200 acres of beach, marsh
and maritime forest. The park was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression and also offers cabins, camping, a nature center and Edisto Interpretive Center,
the state's longest handicapped-accessible hiking trail and a shell
mound believed to have been built by Native Americans as long as 4,000
In addition to the demands of their daily duties,
Park Service leaders cited the park staff for such accomplishments as
successfully handling a flooded campground last fall and managing the
renovation of the historic CCC-built cabins without interrupting
customer service. The park also is responsible for the protection of
endangered sea turtles and other wildlife on its miles of beach, creek
"Edisto Beach State Park attracts hundreds of
thousands of visitors a year and, thanks to the efforts of Manager
Spell and her team, manages to make sure that each of them can have as
positive experience as possible at one of the state's most outstanding
public assets," Gaines said.
