CHARLESTON – Matt Austin, of counsel in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Charleston office, has been appointed to the Carolina Youth Development Center’s (CYDC) Board of Directors.
The CYDC has announced several community leaders to its board. The new members are joining as CYDC begins to develop its 2023-2028 strategic plan.
“We are so excited to welcome this diverse and skilled group of members to our Board of Directors,” said CYDC Board Chair Rita Daily. The appointees bring valued experience by sharing their perspective to the organization and its strategic planning process.
Austin, a previous Assistant U.S. Attorney in the United States Attorney’s Office and Assistant Solicitor in South Carolina’s First Circuit Solicitor’s Office, focuses on both healthcare and white-collar litigation. He has successfully led grand jury investigations and prosecutions of a wide range of white collar crimes involving more than 20 different federal agencies.
CYDC is an important part of Charleston’s historic and cultural heritage, a direct descendant of the Charleston Orphan House, America’s first publicly funded orphanage. It provides programs reaching over 900 children, youth, and their families locally each year, caring for young people who are victims of physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and abandonment, as well as providing resources and support to area families at risk of having their children removed from their home.
