Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand Presents HGTC President with Award.
Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) is proud to announce that HGTC President, Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, was presented with the Champion for Youth Award 2019 by the Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand.
Dione Buonto, Chief Executive Officer of the Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand, and John Rhodes, 2018 Champion for Youth winner, presented President Fore with the award at the 2019 Champion for Youth Dinner Celebration held at the Crown Reef Resort & Waterpark Conference Center.
John Rhodes, 2018 Champion for Youth winner introduced President Fore by saying, “She is someone who has been a great leader at Horry-Georgetown Technical College and a great leader for our youth. She does the job but it’s not a job. She’s not there for the paycheck. She’s there for what she can do for the education of our youth.”
Following the presentation of the award, President Fore was able to express her appreciation with the audience. “Thank you so much, Boys and Girls Club of the Grand Strand, for this great award. I’m so honored to receive it. I’m here because I believe in your mission. My life changed when I found mentors in my life. For those of you who can be a mentor, I am telling you there’s nothing like it in the whole world. That’s why I love what I am doing. There’s so much work to be done. I needed those people in my life and now it’s my time. It’s been my time, and I’m having the time of my life.”
