Ridgill honored for work as Pilot
Ginger Ridgill recently received the Mildred Henry Davenport Award at the 85th South Carolina Pilot District Convention held in Florence for her dedication and work with the Darlington Pilot Club and the Darlington community.
Presenting the award was Pilot Governor Donna Skipper from Bennettsville. The state-level award is given annually to a Pilot who most nearly exemplifies the basic principles of Pilot International in his or her community life.
The Pilot Club of Darlington submitted letters and endorsements from various community and club members highlighting Ridgill’s many acts of dedication to her community.
In addition to serving in numerous offices within the Darlington Pilot Club, including President and currently Secretary, Ridgill has been named Pilot of the Year twice and Pilot Ambassador.
On the international level, Ridgill has served as Personal Assistant to the PI President. She has taken a leading role in the success of the S.C. Sweet Potato Festival over the years, in volunteering her time in preparing Camp Burnt Gin for campers, and providing Pick-Me-Ups for caregivers.
Ridgill also served as a member of the Arts Alive/International Festival Committee for over 10 years. Ridgill’s most enduring contribution is her ongoing work, often behind the scenes, to make sure every Pilot project is successful.
