NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

North Charleston Police awarded two coaches who volunteer their time in service to the community.

Margie Palmer and Manning Rushton, volunteer coaches during the COPS Athletic League's Summer Basketball Camp, received the awards at the department's quarter Retirement, Promotion and Recognition Program on Friday.

Palmer, a lifetime Liberty Hill community resident, "spent countless hours working with her team and pushing them to excellence both on and off the court," police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.

Rushton, who graduated from the College of Charleston, recruited players from the Chicora-Cherokee neighborhood.

"In addition to teaching players basketball skills, he also provided them with structure, guidance and lessons that will carry far beyond basketball," Pryor said.

"The City and police department are grateful to have citizens like Palmer and Rushton actively involved in their neighborhood and the lives of our youth," Police Chief Eddie Driggers said. "They are examples of how we turn young boys into young men and young men into future leaders."

The department also presented awards to current and retirement officers with 25 years or more service, the city's employee of the quarter and the promotion of Joseph Neimec to sergeant, Pryor said.
