Francis Marion’s Non-Profit Leadership Institute Presents Annual Fred Sheheen Award to Chris Manley

Posted By Shayne Kinloch M.A., Together SC, Monday, March 19, 2018

Francis Marion University’s Fred R. Sheheen Non-Profit Leadership Institute and Together SC honored an upstate businessman with their highest award on March 6 at the 2018 Together SC’s Nonprofit Summit in Hilton Head Island, S.C.

Chris Manley president, executive director and founder of Rebuild Upstate, was presented the Fred R. Sheheen Award for Excellence in Non-Profit Leadership.

The award, named in memory of the late Fred R. Sheheen, the founding director of the Non-Profit Leadership Institute, is presented annually to a graduate of FMU’s Non-Profit Leadership Institute or a member of Together SC (formerly SCANPO) who has excelled in the management of their establishment through organization and resource development.

Manley’s Rebuild Upstate is a nonprofit organization that is focused on performing repairs to substandard housing occupied by children, the elderly and those with disabilities. Rebuild Upstate’s goal is to ensure their clients are able to remain in their own homes, free from unsafe conditions.

John Boyanoski, a member of the Rebuild Upstate Board of Directors, says Manley’s work has been immeasurably beneficial to not just the recipients of Rebuild Upstate’s generosity, but the entire Upstate region.

“As a direct and proximate consequence of Chris’ steady guidance, Rebuild Upstate has performed thousands of repairs to homes in Greenville, Pickens, Anderson, and Oconee Counties,” Boyanoski says. “This work, in turn, has enabled thousands of families to remain together in their own homes and, perhaps most importantly, this work has allowed those families to regain pride in their homes, and to transform those structures from an imperfect shelter into a source of personal dignity.”

Manley was presented with a not just the Fred R. Sheheen Award for Excellence in Non-Profit Leadership, but a $500 award, recognition through various communications across the state.

SCANPO mourns loss of Fred Sheheen, arts and education advocate

Posted By SCANPO, Thursday, June 9, 2016
Our entire team at SCANPO was deeply saddened earlier this week when we received news that Fred Sheheen had passed away on Monday in a tragic car accident. 

Fred was a staple in the nonprofit community. He founded, directed and taught at the Nonprofit Leadership Institute at Francis Marion University, where many of our SCANPO team and members received their education and training. 

Every year, he presented the Award for Nonprofit Leadership at the Nonprofit Summit and our team always looked forward to seeing him in attendance. 

In addition to his contributions to our nonprofit community, Fred was also the director of the Institute of Nonprofit Leadership. He served as the executive director for South Carolina’s Commission on Higher Education for more than a decade. Fred taught an honors course on South Carolina State Government for the University of South Carolina, worked as a journalist and served as press secretary for former South Carolina Governor and Senator Donald Russell.  

A graduate of Duke University and the Institute for Education Management at Harvard University, Fred also received honorary degrees from Lander University, Claflin University and the Technical College of the Lowcountry. 

Fred is the father of state Senator Vincent Sheheen, D-Kershaw. In addition to his son and his family, Sheheen is survived by his wife, Rose; brothers Bob and Austin Sheheen and their respective families; and daughters Maria Sheheen Spring and Margaret Sheheen Bishop and their respective families.
