SCACED is celebrating 25 years in 2019. We wouldn’t be here without your leadership, and in celebration of our anniversary, we are creating a hard-covered bound book to showcase our members’ accomplishments.

The book will feature 25 SCACED member stories and photos from the past 25 years. Three of the twenty-five stories will be featured at the Gala dinner on November 14th and one organization will receive $2,500.

I am asking you to submit a story highlighting your organization’s achievements. Click here for rules and submission requirements for the story contest. Please direct all your questions to Amber Stewart at or 843-579-9855. I hope you will take a moment to submit a story and be part of this special occasion.

Stories can be related to: • Community Impact • Personal Success Stories • Partnerships • Community Success • Organizational Impact • Facilities


Each organization (25) who is featured in the 25th Anniversary Publication will receive a complimentary copy of the book. Stories will also be highlighted throughout 2019 on SCACED’s website, Weekly Wednesday, and Facebook page. A committee will select three finalists from the 25 stories. These stories will be featured at the Gala dinner on November 14, 2019. Gala attendees will vote live and the winner will receive $2,500. The top three finalists will receive ten complimentary copies of the publication.
