Island News named LIPBA Community Spirit winner

The Island News was selected as the recipient of the Lady’s Island Business and Professional Association 2009 Community Spirit Award.

In announcing the award, LIBPA wrote: “The Island News is a weekly newspaper which was founded in 2008 by publishers Kim Harding Gallant and Elizabeth Harding with John Williams as editor.  The newspaper, which is provided to the community without charge, has emphasized the achievements of our students, recognition of our teachers and the volunteer contributions of time and talent by our neighbors.

“The Island News has allowed the Lady’s Island community to share the good news of our community.  The sensitive and positive manner in which they portray the Lady’s Island community promotes pride, appreciation of our schools, better understanding of our neighbors and reminds us all of what a great place in which we are privileged to live, work and raise our families.

“LIBPA is proud to recognize Ms. Gallant, Ms. Harding and Mr. Williams for their vision, courage and talent,” LIBPA leaders said. They made the award at the Jan. 12 meeting.

Kim Harding Gallant and her sister, Elizabeth Harding,  own Sister’s Publishing LLC and have a background in publishing in multiple South Carolina markets.
