Recognizing Extraordinary Examples of Leadership

Since 2001, HTC has had the pleasure of creating a connection and relationship with our Horry County Schools through the HTC REEL Kids program by honoring students who demonstrate leadership excellence while overcoming life challenges.

This year, 56 students from Horry, Georgetown and Marion County schools were selected as REEL Kids.  The celebration and ceremony took place on April 28, 2022 at Ripley’s Aquarium Myrtle Beach.  The REEL Kids and their guests were able to tour the Aquarium, were provided lunch and heard from Coastal Carolina University Head Football Coach Jamey Chadwell. Coach Chadwell’s speech focused on the importance of perseverance, overcoming adversity and being the best student, friend and teammate possible. In addition, current Las Vegas Raiders (and Socastee High School graduate) Hunter Renfrow sent in a special video message congratulating the 2021-22 REEL Kids award winners.
