Angel Oak Award Nomination Process - Form

The Angel Oak Award was established by the Exchange Club of Kiawah-Seabrook in 2011 and first awarded in 2012.   The purpose of this award is to recognize a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to the people or quality of life of Wadmalaw Island, Johns Island, Kiawah Island, and/or Seabrook Island.  Along with the award, the Exchange Club makes a $5000 donation to a local charitable organization of the recipient’s choice.  In addition, the recipient receives a remembrance and his/her name is inscribed on the Angel Oak permanent trophy.

The Nominating Form is included below.
