The True Spirit of the Community

The True Spirit of the Community

Let it never be said that the Lowcountry doesn’t know how to  give back. Ours is a community built on a spirit of volunteerism, where any need that needs filled will soon find itself with a small army of helpers at their disposal. When we set out to spotlight a few of the legion of selfless locals who call our area home, we knew the hardest job would be in limiting our search. While the volunteers you see here are to be lauded for their generosity and spirit, know that for every face you see here, there are hundreds more ready to make life a little better in our community.

Far More Than a Crowning Achievement:A budding leader hopes her Miss South Carolina win is just the beginning of a lifetime of impacting social change.

Julia Herrin is the crown-wearing embodiment of taking advantage of opportunity. At age 13, the shy piano-playing middle child of Lowcountry musical entrepreneurs Jeff and Jennifer Herrin decided to forge a completely foreign path by trying to become Miss Teen Hilton Head Island.
“My best friend, my mom, convinced me to try. I laughed it off at first. Me in pageants? I would never win, so why even try?” said the now-19-year-old Bluffton resident.

Good Vibrations: Island musicians rally around a message of hope, unity and above all things… love.

Good Vibrations: Island musicians rally around a message of hope, unity and above all things… love.

Sound, in and of itself, is a miraculous thing. Taken at its simplest, most granular level, it is merely a vibration, a rippling of the air molecules all around us that generates a sympathetic vibration in everything it touches. Sound can shatter glass, or it can heal emotional wounds. It can move the soul, or it can start an avalanche. Sometimes, it does all those things at once.

The Heroes and the Helpers: COVID-19 brings out the Lowcountry’s best

A global pandemic doesn’t play favorites. Regardless of age, wealth or status, we’ve all been thrust into survival mode—every man for himself, fighting to stay alive. While some of us have resources to sustain us through this time of crisis, others do not. In addition to the challenge of protecting their health, many Lowcountry residents find themselves suddenly unable to meet their most basic needs, like keeping a roof over their head and putting food on the table.
