Goose Creek City Administrator Dennis Harmon has been awarded The Order of the Silver Crescent by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Harmon, who is retiring on Aug. 1 after 38 years as Goose Creek City Administrator, was presented the award by Rep. Joe Daning and Rep. Bill Crosby at the June 14 Goose Creek City Council meeting. The Order of the Silver Crescent is the state’s highest civilian award for significant contributions, leadership, volunteerism, and lifelong influence within a region or community. Daning, who was recognized to speak by Goose Creek Mayor Michael Heitzler at the beginning of Tuesday’s meeting, praised Harmon for his decades of strong leadership. Daning then read a letter from Gov. Haley. Haley wrote that she was awarding the Order of the Silver Crescent to Dennis Harmon on behalf of the people of South Carolina. “Your entire life has been marked by a level of achievement that brings enormous credit to you and your community,” Haley said. “Your leadership as the City Administrator for the City of Goose Creek for the past 37 years has resulted in tremendous growth and prosperity for your community. “Through your guidance, integrity and dedication to civic involvement, you have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the betterment of our state, and your many contributions will have a lasting impact for years to come. “South Carolina is blessed by your tremendous work and community service, and I thank you for helping to make our state an even better place to live, work and learn.” The State of South Carolina describes The Order of the Silver Crescent as a once in a lifetime achievement. Harmon received a standing ovation at Tuesday’s meeting. His final City Council meeting as City Administrator will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12.
