MT PLEASANT, SC - Motley Rice is proud to announce that the South Carolina Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) has selected Motley Rice Marketing and Communications Director Alicia G. Ward as one of the Lowcounty's Best and Brightest among professionals.
"Since joining us in 2004, Alicia has helped to significantly expand our brand, increase our community involvement and further our efforts on behalf of our many clients and co-counsel. While excelling in her career, Alicia has also remained steadfast in her commitment of both time and resources to her family and community. I'm so pleased that her accomplishments, leadership and talent have been recognized with this admirable award," shared Motley Rice managing member Joe Rice.
Ward was nominated by Elizabeth Boineau of E. Boineau & Company, her first public relations employer and a longtime professional mentor and colleague of more than 20 years.
