Lisa receiving awardJune 7, 2018 – Camden County Chamber of Commerce honored Lisa Dickerson, MBA, BSN, assistant administrator, Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus, as their 2018 Charlie A. Smith Service Award recipient. Rachel Baldwin, 2016 Chair, Camden County Chamber of Commerce, and last year’s Charlie A. Smith Service Award recipient, presented the award to Dickerson at their Leadership Camden Graduation and Annual Chamber Awards event at the Horse Stamp Inn in Waverly, Georgia, on May 31, 2018.

“Receiving this award is an unexpected honor,” says Dickerson. “I’m grateful to my mentors, like Howard Sepp, who taught me great leadership qualities through example, and gave me opportunities within the Health System to be able to serve the community.”

The Charlie A. Smith Service Award is the highest honor the Chamber can bestow and is given in memory of past chairman, Charlie A. Smith. According to Baldwin, “Charlie pursued every task with a servant’s heart, seeking the only ‘return on his investment’ of time, effort and support to be that Camden County become a better place. He especially cherished leadership and was a mentor to many of us. This year, the Charlie A. Smith Service Award goes to someone who has invested in this community with Charlie’s zeal and dedication.”

Baldwin describes Dickerson as having a “servant’s heart, running a tight ship professionally and as a volunteer. She takes her Chamber board membership responsibilities seriously and has almost single handedly recruited, organized, coordinated and delivered a comprehensive year of opportunities to members who aspire to leadership."
