MPCC Monthly Luncheon: Guest Speaker, J. Laurence Hutto, Executive Director of Operations, Congressional Medal of Honor Society
Colonel John Laurence Hutto was born and raised in the South Carolina Low Country. He attended The Citadel and graduated in 1987 after receiving a U.S. Army commission in the Field Artillery. During his 27- year Army career, he held numerous command and staff positions and deployed on multiple combat missions throughout the Middle East. His active-duty service provided his family and him the opportunity to live across the nation and throughout the world.
In 2014 he retired from active duty, and he was selected to serve as the Executive Director of the Citadel Alumni Association as he promoted and supported his college until 2018. In 2019, he became a certified tour guide in Charleston and found a new passion in sharing the history of one of America’s most storied cities until recently being selected in 2022 to serve as the Executive Direction of Operations for the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.
Laurence is married to Carrie K. Hutto, and they have three children named Lauren, Meghan, and John who were all raised in our wonderful community of MT Pleasant.
