Joan A. Inabinet recently received the Robert N. Pryor Volunteer Service Award from Confederation of Local Historical Societies (CLHS) at its Landmark Convention in Spartanburg. Presenting her with the award were CLSH President J.R. Fenell and Ex-Officio Mike Scoggins.

The Kershaw County Historical Society nominated Inabinet for “supplying outstanding lifetime volunteer service” to the society. A recipient of this prestigious award “must have demonstrated unselfish loyalty to the organization and devoted time, talent, energy, and resources to the preservation and interpretation of state and/or local history.”

For 13 years,. Inabinet has been the editor and layout technician of the society’s quarterly newsletter, Update, which announces upcoming society programs, reports business, and includes newly researched articles on local history topics, one of which she usually writes. Using her own equipment and supplies, she does the layouts, transitional writing, and preparation of illustrations, and submits all work camera-ready to the printer. Additionally, in 2000, Inabinet began a Web page for the society and still serves as its volunteer webmaster. The Web page announces society events and afterward posts photographic reports.

Since the 1990s, Inabinet has served several intermittent terms on the society’s board and has served continuously on its publications committee. She was society president from 1998-2000, during which she wrote a proposal and garnered support that resulted in Kershaw County’s being approved for a survey subsequently carried out by the S.C. Department of Archives and History. She voluntarily did the camera-ready publication work for four manuscripts donated by others for the profit of the society. Also for the society’s profit, she researched, transcribed, annotated, and prepared camera-ready A Wateree River Plantation Journal (1997), based on an early 19th century manuscript she owns.
