Peyton's Story

Peyton's favorite flower was the daisy.
"The rose has but a summer reign, the daisy never dies" James Montgomery

Peyton Tuthill Annual ICAOS Award
The Peyton Tuthill Award is an award that goes to a legislator, victims' advocate, law enforcement officer or other individual who has demonstrated exceptional leadership and service to the Interstate Compact. The commission feels it important to recognize individuals who are not involved professionally in the Compact, but who make an outstanding contribution of service which promotes the mission of the compact.

Peyton Tuthill became an unfortunate icon during the development of the Compact. Her tragic death serves as a daily reminder to policymakers across our nation as to why this compact and its tenants are critical to the preservation of public safety. This award, honors an individual who has provided dedicated service to the success of the compact and its mission, and it honors Peyton and her family.

About Peyton
“Peyton Tuthill devoted her life to helping others. As a student at the College of Charleston In South Carolina, she was active in charitable organizations including: The American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, Volunteers of America, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, My Sister’s House, and Advocate for the Elderly, nursing homes and children’s centers.

As president of her sorority, Chi Omega, she organized the “adoption” of a family of five children.(Peyton shown left with adopted kids)
Although it was supposed to be a one-time event, Peyton made it a three-year event before graduating and moving from Charleston, South Carolina.

She lived life to the fullest. She didn’t just talk about doing things; she did them. The greatest testament of a person’s life is made not only while they are living, but also in the legacy they leave behind. Peyton certainly left a powerful one for us to emulate.”--Joe Lay, Minister, Navarre United Methodist Church
