Four members of the Charleston-area community will be honored next week at The Free Enterprise Foundation's annual Ethics and Civic Responsibility luncheon.

The honorees are state Sen. Paul G. Campbell Jr., R-Goose Creek; Evening Post Publishing Co. Chairman Pierre Manigault; Piggly Wiggly Carolina Co. immediate past Chairman Burton R. Schools; and Trident Technical College President Mary Thornley.

The four are being honored for their work in civic, corporate, philanthropic and educational leadership.

"Ethics, civic responsibility and leadership are important to our Lowcountry community, and we are proud to honor these local leaders," Robert E. Freer Jr., president and founder of The Free Enterprise Foundation, said in announcing the honorees.

The Free Enterprise Foundation is a nonprofit academic institute housed in Charleston, at The Citadel.

Past recipients of the group's Ethics and Civic Responsibility Awards include Charleston Mayor Joe Riley and Jerry and Anita Zucker.

The award luncheon will be from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at The Citadel's Holliday Alumni Center, 69 Hagood Ave.

The event will feature a keynote address from Yaron Brook, the executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute.
