Lowcountry legend Tommy Thornhill was honored for more than a half century of service on March 6 as the Kiwanis Club of Charleston unveiled the Thomas E. Thornhill Kiwanis Endowed Scholarship.

The scholarship was announced at a special club luncheon thrown in Thornhill's honor at the Carolina Yacht Club. The scholarship was established to commemorate Thornhill's 50th anniversary of service as president of the Kiwanis Club of Charleston and his 61st year in Kiwanis. The initial endowment of $20,000 will be used to provide scholarships for local high school students and the principal will be added to annually through the club's fundraisers. The scholarship will be managed and administered by the Coastal Community Foundation.

Thornhill became involved with Kiwanis as a Key Club member at Charleston High School. He has since served in numerous leadership positions, provided invaluable guidance and contributed to numerous service projects benefiting the children of our community.

Professionally, Thornhill is a principal at Clement, Crawford and Thornhill, Inc. He also founded and is president of the Old Charleston Joggling Board Co. In addition to Kiwanis, he has served as president of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, Historic Charleston Foundation, the Charles Towne Landing Foundation, the Charlestowne Neighborhood Association, and the Trident United Way.
