The Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated participated in the Voters’ Registration and Voters’ Education Fair on April 15, 2022 at the Bluffton Gullah Market. The event was sponsored by Campbell Chapel AME Church Christian Social Action Organization and Black Voters Matter. Our chapter joined other partners such as Iglesia Torre Fuerte, First Zion Baptist Church, Bible Missionary Baptist Church, League of Women Voters, Lowcountry Indivisible, Lowcountry Coalition Against Hate, Beaufort County Treasurer, Beaufort-Jasper Economic Opportunity Commission, HHIBAC Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated Nu-Delta Omega Chapter, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Lowcountry Immigration Coalition. In addition to sharing the importance of voting down ballot, members were able to share our Chapter’s Voting Impacts Student Awareness Program (V.I.S.A.) The purpose of this program is to educate and mentor high school students on the importance of registering to vote, casting their vote, engaging in critical thinking when voting and becoming poll workers in their communities. The goal is to increase the number of voters in Jasper, Hampton and Beaufort counties as students share their knowledge with family and friends.

Even a few of our alums joined in this most worthy event - (Toni Bailey, Jan Billingslea, and Anita Miles)!

Services to Youth

The Linked To Success program is designed to increase students' ability to listen effectively as a skill to improve reading success. In March and April of 2022, the Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated partnered with the James Davis Early Learning Center in Beaufort, South Carolina to bring Linked to Success to their kindergarteners. Our members

have become volunteer reader to their kindergarten classes.

Let's thank the Services To Youth Facet for a job well done and all the sisters who read to children.


National Trends and Services

In March 2022, the Hilton Head (SC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated gave back to the community today by partnering with the Center For Heirs’ Property Preservation to host a drive-thru Wills Clinic at Queen Chapel AME Church. Having a Will is one the ways to ensure that title to property will cleanly pass to known heirs and will not be subjected to the myriad of problems that come with having unclear title.

International Trends and Services

On April 29th, members of the International Trends and Services Facet supported Tania Thomas by attending her graduation ceremony held at the University of South Carolina (Beaufort Campus). Tania, an international student from Jamaica, has been mentored by the Chapter for a couple of years as she pursued her degree in Biology. Other means of support provided by the Hilton Head (SC) Chapter has been hosting a panel discussion to introduce her to other pharmacists and providing monetary gifts and words of encouragement during various periods in her academic career. Her future goal is to enroll in a pharmaceutical school. Plans are currently being made to maintain a long-term relationship with Tania.

Sisters Celebrating Sisters!

We are so proud of our sisters who are serving our communities!

We are so proud of our very own, Dr. Sheryse DuBose, historic neighborhoods preservation administrator for the Town of Hilton Head Island in the Lowcountry, who was featured in the Hilton Head Sun. Trying to navigate local government, especially for landowners of historic districts, has stunted the preservation of their communities. The town is trying to proactively address the problem with the creation of a Historic Neighborhoods Permitting and Design Studio. The idea is to assist property and business owners with the litany of questions and tasks involved in developing property. This studio will be most helpful to those owners who have felt ignored and frustrated, especially those with heirs’ properties.

“Our goal is to be a one-stop resource center to help property and business owners navigate the Town’s land use and development standards, prepare development applications and resolve some barriers with property use such as property buffers, setbacks, easements and rights-of-way,” says Sheryse.
