CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A plan to help preserve the culture of slave descendants on the sea islands of the Southeast is now with the National Park Service in Washington.

A 272-page management report on the Gullah-Geechee Heritage Corridor was delivered to the Park Service earlier this month. Once approved by agency officials it will be sent to the Secretary of the Interior.

The plan has been a dozen years in the making.

The Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor Commission has chosen its first at-large executive committee member. That’s to make sure all four states in the corridor - The Carolinas, Georgia and Florida - are represented on the panel.

Eulis A. Willis of Navassa, N.C., was added when there was no elected North Carolina representative on the executive panel .
