The Wilkins Legislative and Civic Awards Dinner bears the name of David H. Wilkins, former ambassador to Canada and speaker of the S.C. House of Representatives, one of South Carolina’s true statesmen and leaders. During his 25 year tenure in the House, Wilkins left an indelible mark on the state’s political landscape. His widely acclaimed leadership and commitment to public service has become a benchmark of excellence for state legislators around the country.
To honor and sustain Wilkins’ efforts in the SC House of Representatives, the Riley Institute proudly recognizes excellence in legislative and civic leadership at the annual Wilkins Awards Dinner. At the dinner, the Riley Institute bestows the annual Wilkins Award for Excellence in Legislative Leadership and the Wilkins Award for Excellence in Civic Leadership on two deserving individuals, each selected by a confidential committee of former (bi-partisan) legislators, involved community leaders, scholars, and journalists.
