The Palmetto Association for Children and Families convened its annual conference at the Embassy Suites in Myrtle Beach in February under the compelling theme of “Breaking Barriers, Making Waves.” Amidst this inspiring backdrop, JusticeWorks proudly celebrates the remarkable achievements of Ms. Alicia Hinson, whose unwavering commitment to positive change has garnered well-deserved recognition.

As Director of FCCSS over the past two years, Alicia has epitomized the conference’s theme, embodying resilience and determination in her endeavors. With precision and contagious enthusiasm, Alicia orchestrated the seamless implementation of the program. This feat involved integrating 12 providers, establishing a robust data management system, crafting comprehensive policies and procedures, and assembling a cohesive team. Alicia’s leadership shone brightly throughout this process, serving as the cornerstone of the program’s success.

Alicia’s proactive approach to challenges and steadfast support for those in need underscores her dedication to excellence. Through strategic initiatives such as regional and special project meetings and regular check-ins, Alicia ensured the seamless coordination of services, fostering unity among providers and promoting a harmonious execution of the program’s objectives.

Beyond her professional obligations, Alicia’s compassionate nature shines through in her thoughtful gestures, from crafting unique gifts for holidays to ensuring their heartfelt delivery to providers statewide. These personal touches, including the memorable Thanksgiving Candy Bar and Christmas Lantern, reflect Alicia’s genuine concern for the well-being of others and further exemplify her exceptional leadership style.

Alicia’s peers have long recognized her dedication, and it is with great honor that she was bestowed the prestigious award “One Person Can Make a Difference” during the conference luncheon. This accolade is a testament to Alicia’s tireless efforts and her significant impact on her community.

Congratulations to Alicia on this well-deserved recognition! Her commitment, passion, and unwavering dedication inspire us all, and we eagerly anticipate witnessing the continued impact of her exemplary leadership in the coming days.
