Dorchester Democrats honored two from the local community at their annual dinner on the evening of Sept. 28.

The keynote speaker for the evening was Sen. Vincent Sheheen, who is also a declared Democratic candidate for governor in the upcoming 2014 election.

Rev. Dr. John Miller and County Councilman Willie Davis each received an Alice J. Cicenia Distinguished Service Award at the county party’s event, held at the Holiday Inn Express in Summerville.

Miller is a retired Presbyterian minister residing in Summerville; Davis, from St. George, represents Dist. 1 on County Council. Both have been active with DCDP for many years.

“We recognize individuals in our county party who have worked tirelessly in the pursuit of Democratic values in the spirit of Alice Cicenia,” said DCDP Chair Richard Hayes. “Both of this year’s honorees have long shared values, and are committed to those values here in Dorchester County.”

The honor’s namesake was a respected community activist who worked with the Democratic Party on county, state and national levels.

A “Trailblazer Award” also bestowed that evening went to former county party chairman Steven J. Yeomans (2008-2010).
