Henrys named Citizens of the Year

  • Thursday, September 4, 2014

Chris Sokoloski/South Strand News Sassy and Brian Henry, owners of the Sea View Inn, accept congratulations from Linwood Altman after being named co-Citizens of the Year by the Pawleys Island Civic Association on Aug. 30.

Brian Henry was helping seat people at the annual meeting of the Pawleys Island Civic Association on Aug. 30.

When everybody was squeezed into the Pawleys Island Chapel, Henry stepped outside to get a breath of fresh air.

There he found the staff of the Sea View Inn, which he owns with his wife, Sassy, and his daughters, May May and Camille.

That’s when he knew something was up.

Inside the chapel, Sassy Henry was waiting for Brian to be named the Pawleys Island Citizen of the Year.

What she didn’t know was that the Civic Association would name her and Brian co-Citizens of the Year.

“I’m flabbergasted because I thought it was about Brian today,” Sassy said.

It’s the first time two people have been honored in the same year, according to Jim McCants, who announced the winners.

McCants called the Henrys a “tremendous asset to the community.”

Along with the Sea View Inn, the Henrys own Palmetto Cheese, Get Carried Away, and Pawleys Creek Apparel.

Brian is also president of the Waccamaw High Athletic Booster Club and chairman of the Georgetown County Planning Commission.

The Henrys moved to Pawleys Island from the Atlanta area in 2002 to take over the Sea View Inn.

“We love living at Pawleys Island,” Sassy said.

Brian gave a lot of the credit for their success to his wife.

“I have never met a more hard-working individual than Sassy,” he said.

As soon as they accepted the award, the Henrys headed to the Sea View Inn to get ready to feed the Civic Association members at the after-party.
