Ian D. Maguire Named 2019 Ann DeBock Leadership Award Winner

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Ian Maguire, Esquire/Owner of The Maguire Law Firm, was chosen as the 2019 Leadership Grand Strand Ann DeBock Leadership Award winner. Maguire was presented with the award at a ceremony during the Ann DeBock Leadership Award Alumni Social at the Dunes Golf and Beach Club on Jan. 25. Presented by Leadership Grand Strand, a 9-month leadership program of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, the annual award honors one LGS graduate who exhibits outstanding leadership and service. The recipient must volunteer in service or civic roles, serve on appointed boards or commissions, and exhibit an overall demonstration of effective leadership skills.

“We had incredible nominees put forth each year for this award,” said Ashley Setzer, LGS Board of Regents Chair. “Ian truly stood out for the many contributions he has made to our community over the past 20 years through many different organizations.”

Maguire has dedicated time and leadership to Horry County Special Olympics, March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction, Grand Strand Rape Crisis Center, St. Andrew’s School Board, Early-College High School, North Myrtle Beach Civitans, South Carolina Bar Workers’ Compensation Section, Injured Workers’ Advocates of South Carolina and the LGS Board of Regents. He also is an active volunteer for the Community Kitchen of Myrtle Beach, has coached mock trial teams at Socastee High School and recently helped lead the St. Andrew Catholic School Mock Trial team to a first-place finish at regionals.

During the LGS Ann DeBock Leadership Award Alumni social three finalists for the award were recognized: Randy Harrison (posthumously), John Poston and Jeffrey Wisniewski.

The Ann DeBock Leadership Award was commissioned and started by Class XIX in memory of Ann DeBock, the executive director of Leadership Grand Strand from its inception in 1979 until her death in 1998.
