S.C. Appleseed Honors Nelson Mullins’ Stuart Andrews with Clementa Pinckney Award

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Oct. 12, 2016)– The S.C. Appleseed Legal Justice Center has honored Stuart M. Andrews Jr., a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Columbia office, with its 2016 Rev. Sen. Clementa C. Pinckney Award for Justice. The award recognizes a champion for justice whose life’s work has been dedicated to improving the lives of fellow South Carolinians, according to the organization.

S.C. Appleseed recognized Mr. Andrews for his “vision, compassion, and leadership in serving the legal needs of the low income community.” He has served as chair of S.C. Appleseed’s board and was a founding member of South Carolina Legal Services. He also has served on the governing board of a number of other advocacy and service organizations, often as chair. Along with his community and civic work, he has undertaken individual cases, pushed for laws and policies resulting in widespread benefit, and worked directly with nonprofits that provide direct legal aid to the state’s poorest citizens, the organization noted. 

The award is named for longtime S.C. Appleseed supporter S.C. Sen. Clementa C. Pinckney, who was killed in the mass shooting in June 2015 in Charleston, S.C. at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church, where he served as senior pastor.
