Keith and Dixie Hinson of Myrtle Beach have made a significant gift of land to Coastal Carolina University. The five-acre commercial tract is located near the intersection of International Drive and Grissom Parkway.
Keith Hinson is president of Waccamaw Land and Timber Company and Hinson Properties LLC. He has been involved in the governance of the University for many years, serving on the board of directors of the Coastal Educational Foundation and the board of visitors of the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration.
The Hinson family has been generous to the University, particularly to athletics and the Wall College of Business. The Hinsons were inducted into the University's Atheneum Society in May 2008. Keith and Dixie Hinson are both alumni of Coastal Carolina University.
