On July 19th the Multi-Cultural Association of Beaufort County presented six local organizations with a total of $95,000 in honor and recognition of the association’s founding member and president, Margie Kline Jenkins. The association was organized to combat cultural disparities in our communities.

Other organizations that received funding are: Circle of Hope Ministries, the historic Grand Army Hall and its partner organization Woman’s Relief Corps #1 of South Carolina, Beaufort County Youth Conference and Wesley United Methodist Church. Penn Center’s new Executive Director, Dr. Rodell Lawrence, was honored and grateful to have received funding from the association. Dr. Lawrence has served in his new position for approximately four months; he looks forward to working with St. Helena Island, Beaufort and the surrounding communities to advance the vision and mission of Penn Center.
