It seems quite appropriate to tap Pawleys Island Tavern as one of the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce’s honorees for Business of the Month.

The bar and eatery is such a local institution, after all, that its name has been reduced to just three letters: P-I-T. Yes, Pawleys Island Tavern — or, “The PIT” as locals call it – showcases the charm of Pawleys Island and its “classically shabby” mantra.

The Chamber and members of the Strovis Holdings senior management team assisted stopped by The PIT last week to officially confer the Business of the Month title.

Just call it “The Money PIT” — that’s because thousands of dollar bills have been stuck on practically every space on the walls and ceilings throughout the Pawleys Island Tavern. Customers from all over the country put a real value on their love for the local institution by adding cash to the interior design. (Photo by Mark A. Stevens)

In presenting the award, Strovis Holdings Chief Operating Officer Tracy Mau told employees of The PIT that she was pleased to help honor a local favorite.

“Everybody loves The PIT,” she said. “I love The PIT, and it’s a real honor for me to be here.”

Strovis serves as the official corporate sponsor for the Business of the Month Award. Mau and Chamber President and CEO Beth Stedman presented The PIT staff with a framed certificate. A special 7-foot-tall banner will also be displayed throughout November at the business, signifying the establishment as an award-winning Chamber member.

Pawleys Island Tavern is located at 10635 Ocean Highway, tucked away behind a series of shops. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.-2 a.m.

The Business of the Month Award honors Chamber-member businesses for being leaders in the community, and Strovis is proud to serve as the official corporate sponsor.

Strovis was founded in 1998 and has served clients in 32 states. The company has three divisions: Strovis Insurance, Strovis Payroll & HR and Strovis Benefits.

Strovis Holdings inducted Imani Simon and Katherine Taylor into the Strovis Character County Awards program Thursday, Nov. 29, at Georgetown High School.

The student-athletes are the latest honorees for the 2018-2019 school year.

Simon, a junior at GHS, was inducted as a member of the volleyball team. Coach Amy Youmell praised Simon for always working hard in school and on the volleyball team. While she received the Character Counts Award for volleyball, it should be noted that she is also a member of the track and field team and even runs summer track and field. Her coaches say she is always on time, works hard and is willing to do anything for her team.

Simon was presented with a certificate and a $50 Visa gift card.

Taylor, a sophomore at GHS, was inducted as a member of the girls’ golf team. Coach Sierra Billhimer said Taylor was tapped for the honor for her success on the team and for her determination. Her certificate reads: “For outstanding performance as a 2018-2019 member of the Georgetown High School Girls’ Golf Team and for always showing unwavering dedication for her sport, her team and her school – clearly demonstrating that Character Counts.”

Taylor also received a $50 gift card with her certificate naming her as an inductee into the program.

Strovis Chief Operating Officer Tracy Mau presented the girls with their awards. Assisting Mau during the awards presentation were Jessica Sasser, president of the GHS Athletic Booster Club, and Alicia Johnson, GHS assistant principal.

Simon and Taylor will be among 18 student-athletes to be honored this school year as Strovis Character Counts Award winners.

The Strovis Character Counts program honors student-athletes who excel in their chosen sport, as well as in life. Students who hold strong character traits are selected for the award. They are nominated by members of the coaching staff.

During Thursday’s presentation, Mau praised the young honorees for showing good character and urged them to continue to use those traits throughout their life. “You will always find that good character will serve you well in whatever you do,” she said.

Strovis partnered with the Georgetown High School Bulldogs Athletic Booster Club to create the awards program in the fall of 2017. The Booster Club remains a co-sponsor for the 2018-2019 school year.

Founded in Georgetown in 1998, Strovis Holdings oversees three divisions of the company: Strovis Payroll & HR, Strovis Benefits and Strovis Insurance.
