Evan Guthrie of the Evan Guthrie Law Firm in Charleston, South Carolina helped with the American Bar Association TIPS Burke Middle School Public Service Project at the Burke High School Auditorium In Charleston, South Carolina on Thursday May 17th 2012. The service project was a part of the 2012 ABA TIPS Spring Leadership Meeting that was held in Charleston, SC in May of 2012. Students that attended the service project were from Burke Middle School and Sanders Clyde Middle School. The ABA service project was held at the Burke High School Auditorium and included middle school students from both schools. The main point of the project was to raise awareness of disaster preparedness and the steps that students could take to protect themselves in the case of a natural disaster by handing out a disaster kit to each student that took part. Speakers included a judge that told of her personal story of how she worked hard to make herself a success, a law student that read her award winning essay on insurance claims in the aftermath of the BP oil spill, an attorney that worked for a big insurance company that demonstrated the effects of disasters, and a law professor that explained how the disaster kits worked and how to best make it through a disaster event.

Attorney Evan Guthrie helped organize and hand out the disaster kits to the students after the presentation was concluded. The kits that were handed out included a folder with checklists to follow to make sure that all needs are prepared for before and after an event and a flash drive to keep important records that would make it through and be portable so all would not be lost. The importance of preparedness was stressed during the presentation as the state of South Carolina and the Charleston area in particular were vulnerable to just about every major type of natural disaster including hurricanes, flooding, tornados, and earthquakes. Attorney Guthrie went through Hurricane Hugo when he was in grade school and remembered the need to be prepared. The attorneys inspired in the project inspired the students to take the lead in their households and communities to help everyone else be prepared. Evan Guthrie was happy to participate in the project as a representative of the local legal community in Charleston SC and guide the attorneys that came from across the country. Attorney Guthrie was happy to return to Burke where he participated as a speaker for Career Month for the middle school and Career Day for the middle and high schools and looked forward to volunteering for the school again in the future.
