DHEC Director Dr. Edward Simmer presented appreciation coins to State Library Director Leesa Aiken and Collections and Services Director Virginia Pierce. Aiken and Pierce were instrumental in helping DHEC find information about an old gravesite behind one of its State Park buildings. The goal is to create a historical plaque honoring the site and those buried there. DHEC’s appreciation coins recognize the great work of employees and partners across the state who address the health and safety of South Carolina residents, improve the environment in which we live, and work for the betterment of DHEC.
