University of South Carolina Alumni Award
What an unbelievable honor to be chosen as the recipient of the 2018 Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award from the University of South Carolina! The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award, named for the great humanitarian and philanthropist, honors an outstanding graduate demonstrating professional excellence of character and service to humanity and is the highest honor awarded to Carolina alumni. My entire family enjoyed a wonderful weekend of celebration hosted by the amazing staff from the Carolina Alumni Association! I was humbled to be honored for my work with burned patients around the world and give God the glory for this privilege.
Hi, I'm Cindy,
God literally set me on fire in 2001 with third degree burns on 40% of my body so that I could understand the needs and so that I would have a passion for other burn victims......Now, I travel and teach, helping care givers in developing countries around the world with practical ideas on how to offer a low cost, effective, rehabilitation program for their patients.
