REEL Kids Get Real Recognition

For more than 20 years, 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, for the first time in REEL Kids history, we’re excited to have the opportunity to expand our program to now include not only Horry County schools, but also schools from both Georgetown and Marion Counties. And throughout the spring months, HTC spotlighted our 2021-22 REEL Kids award recipients by releasing their stories individually every weekend on social media and the HTC website.

Coming out of the pandemic, the celebration for the REEL Kids was something quite different as compared to the old awards banquet. This year, in addition to their stories being shared, every REEL Kid was able to take part in a celebration held at Ripley’s Aquarium Myrtle Beach.

The 2022 REEL Kids guest speaker was Coastal Carolina University Chanticleers Head Football Coach Jamey Chadwell. In speaking at the REEL Kids celebration, Coach Chadwell 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. 

We invite you to watch each video to learn more about what makes every one of these students a REEL Kid by visiting
