Sheldon Township gets visit from Leadership SC


Leadership South Carolina, a leadership development and civic engagement group, recently visited Sheldon Township for a three-day session focused on social issues and health topics. 

The class spent one of its days completely immersed in Sheldon Township’s challenges and successes as a rural community in Beaufort County.

The focal point of the workshop was the Sheldon Township Community Support Partnership, a grassroots group established two decades ago in 1997 to develop the Sheldon Township community.

“We are pleased to have one of the state’s leading civic organizations here to join us in discussion and fellowship and to learn about our efforts here in the Sheldon Township,” said The Rev. James E. Moore of Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Dale. “We’re small in number but our results are vast because our volunteers work with unwavering faith to find projects and resources to help our community to overcome educational, economic, social and health issues.”

The partnership, made up of resident volunteers and no full-time staff, has brought more than $4.8 million into the community in the past two decades.

“It’s so important for all South Carolina leaders to understand how communities can help better themselves. Beaufort’s success in Sheldon Township demonstrates what can be done if they find common ground and work for the good of all. Clearly this shows the best of Beaufort and we were privileged to see this ‘Beloved Community’ up-close,” said Helen Munnerlyn, executive director of Leadership South Carolina.
