Whereas, Brian A. Comer of Anderson has won the 1995 Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award at the University of South Carolina in Columbia; and

Whereas, the stated purpose of the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award is "to establish a permanent reminder of the noblest human qualities as expressed and followed in the life of Algernon Sydney Sullivan and to do so in a manner which will perpetuate the influence of such a man, not so much as an individual, but as a type"; and

Whereas, to recognize like qualities in others and to encourage in youth the development of such characteristics, the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation, established by the noted humanitarian and philanthropist, has chosen the field of education and selected certain institutions through which this recognition and encouragement may be given by annual awards; and

Whereas, at the University of South Carolina, the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award is bestowed upon two outstanding seniors, one male and one female, as well as a distinguished alumnus or alumna, who are considered to best exemplify the qualities for which the award stands; and

Whereas, Brian A. Comer is the male student recipient of this prestigious award at USC for 1995; and

Whereas, Brian is an outstanding young man in every way; he has served as Student Government President and has represented the USC students on the University's Board of Trustees; he is a Carolina Scholar and has been elected to Phi Beta Kappa, Omicron Delta Kappa, and Mortar Board; in 1994 he was the University's nominee for one of the nation's highest undergraduate academic and service awards, the Truman Scholarship; and he has also been a mentor in the University's and the State's juvenile justice programs; and

Whereas, Brian has also devotedly served the members of the House of Representatives as a legislative aide for the House Judiciary Committee; he has been an excellent aide and the members and staff of the committee have come to admire him for his intelligence and superb service and have also valued his friendship; and

Whereas, Brian is people-oriented and is always ready to provide service and assistance to his fellow human beings whenever and wherever possible; and

Whereas, he has truly been a credit to the General Assembly through his service and loyalty, and we are delighted to have this opportunity to accord special recognition to such an outstanding and deserving individual. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, congratulate Brian A. Comer of Anderson on winning the 1995 Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award at the University of South Carolina.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Mr. Brian A. Comer.
