Charles H. Morris, founder of Morris Multimedia, the Savannah-based company that formerly owned and remains affiliated with the Dawson County News, was recognized April 12 at the 42nd annual Preservation Awards ceremony in Thomasville for his efforts to preserve the Kehoe Iron Works in Savannah.
The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation presented 29 awards recognizing the best of preservation across the state. The Trust is one of the country’s leading statewide, nonprofit preservation organizations. Their mission is to preserve and revitalize Georgia’s diverse historic resources. Awards are presented on the basis of the contributions of the person or project to the community or state and on compliance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
“This year’s winners represent a tremendous dedication to restoring and revitalizing Georgia’s historic buildings and communities,” said Mark C. McDonald, president of The Georgia Trust. “We are proud to honor such deserving projects and individuals.”
