As part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the publication of Charleston Receipts, the Junior League of Charleston made a special gift of $2000 to the Charleston Speech and Hearing Center in honor of the contributions of Dr. Mitch Carnell’s 35 year’s as President/CEO of the center and his contributions to the Charleston Community.

Charleston Receipts was published to support the center, which the Junior League founded in 1947. The proceeds from the sale of the cookbook supported the center for 16 years until it became a member agency of the Trident United Way. Carnell, an ASHA Fellow and past president of the South Carolina Speech Language and Hearing Association, headed the center from 1964 until his retirement in 1999.

Carnell presented the check to Christine Dukes, director of speech language pathology, and Michelle Dressler-Lomano, audiologist at the center’s new satellite offices.
