Matt Sloan earns excellence in architecture Patron award
Matt Sloan, president of DI Development Co, was honored with The American Institute of Architects - South Carolina (AIASC) Patron Award for design excellence in the field of architecture through policies and the public’s perception and appreciation of architecture as an important part of their environment, lifestyle, and heritage.
“Matt is a well-respected community leader who has coached, influenced, and impacted the work and decisions of a multitude of planners, architects, landscape architects, and government leaders in the greater Charleston area for almost 30 years, and we are better because of that experience,” said Charles Muldrow, AIA, NCARB, founding principal at SMHa, in a release. “His recognition that development is not just about buildings and roads but also about honoring the surrounding environment; being good stewards of natural resources; drawing people together in community; and bettering a region’s quality of life has made – and will continue to make – the Lowcountry a better place.”
“I am touched by this award,” said Sloan in a statement. “I value my relationship with the architects whose work is featured throughout Daniel Island, Carnes Crossroads, and now Point Hope. It is an honor to be recognized by them in this way.”

Dee Norton center launches online pledge to prevent child abuse 
Dee Norton Child Advocacy Center, a resource to prevent abuse, protect children, and heal families, has launched an online pledge campaign, encouraging people to take action and commit to prevent child abuse and protect children.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, despite national anonymous hotlines reporting increased calls related to child abuse, child welfare reports of child abuse have decreased, likely due to decreased contact among children and mandated reporters because of quarantine. 
“Right now, we know the combination of social isolation and stress puts a large number of children at an increased risk for abuse,” said Dr. Carole Swiecicki, executive director. “It is more important now than ever to take action to prevent child abuse and speak up if there is a concern for abuse. And it’s everyone’s duty — not just mandated reporters.”
