HTC Reel Kids 2024

Recognizing Extraordinary Examples of Leadership

The REEL Kids Program

Since 2001, HTC has created a connection and relationship with schools throughout our service area, which now includes Horry, Georgetown and Marion counties, through the HTC REEL Kids program. With this program, the Cooperative honors students who demonstrate leadership excellence while overcoming life challenges.

All schools in all three counties, primary through high school, are encouraged to participate by nominating an extraordinary student.  To become an HTC REEL Kid, each child, along with his or her teacher, principal or guidance counselor, will have their story documented for sharing with the community. And throughout the spring months, HTC will spotlight our REEL Kids award recipients by releasing their individual stories every weekend via our Facebook page, YouTube channel and Cooperative website.

There are 84 schools in the tri-county area and this year we are excited to have 100% participation! It is with great excitement that we share the stories of our 84 REEL Kids!

Over 300 guests of HTC visited Myrtle Beach Ripley’s Aquarium on Thursday, April 18, 2024 for the 23rd Annual REEL Kids Celebration! Of the 84 recipients, 75 students from Horry, Georgetown and Marion Counties received their awards from HTC CEO Carlton Lewis, were inspired by CCU Associate Head Basketball Coach Ryne Lightfoot and enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by The Trestle Restaurant (Conway) Watch the highlights of the day, and to learn more, visit our blog.
