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 Service.

"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 years ago.

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 and forest.

"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.
