Trident Literacy Association announces the 2021 Founder’s Award Honorees. In lieu of the traditional luncheon to celebrate the event, Trident Literacy will host a series of Founder’s Award virtual events on Thursdays in March where honorees will receive their awards and discuss women’s roles in our community. The annual event is celebrated during International Women’s Month to honor our founder and all women worldwide, working towards equity for all.
The Founder’s Award was inspired by Trident Literacy Association’s founder, Pat Gibson. Pat founded TLA to provide a pathway out of poverty for people and to make the community a better place for everyone. Founder’s Award honorees are women like Pat, who use their platform to elevate other women and our community through philanthropy, business, sports, education, or the arts.
This year’s Honorees are Julie Armstrong, Charleston County Clerk of Court; LaVanda Brown, Executive Director, YWCA Charleston; Susan Dunn, Legal Director, ACLU SC; Sue Hanshaw, CEO and Chairman emeritus Tricounty Family Ministries; Linda Ketner, Organizational Consultant and Donor Activist; Harriet P. McDougal, Editor, Philanthropist, and Author; Nilsy Rapalo, Life Coach and Author; and Nina Cano Richards, Attorney and Immigration Rights Advocate.
