Whereas, Erica Rymer, a resident of Lexington County and an eighth grader at While Knoll Middle School, and Reid Coggins, a resident of York County and a senior at Fort Mill High School, have each achieved national recognition for exemplary volunteer service by receiving a silver medallion signifying the top State 2000 Prudential Spirit of Community Award; and
Whereas, this prestigious award and a one thousand dollar prize, presented by The Prudential Insurance Company of America in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, honors the two top young volunteers from each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to serving their communities; and
Whereas, Erica earned this award by giving generously of her time and energy to the collection of school and medical supplies for one thousand five hundred needy children in a Haitian orphanage and money for installation of a water purification system at the orphanage; and
Whereas, Reid earned the award by undertaking the establishment of a student chapter of the Rotary Interact Club, a community service organization offering flexible and varied activities for young people, including a monthly orientation program for new students, a monthly food drive to aid a local assisted-living facility, and a fundraiser for international charity relief; and
Whereas, Erica and Reid also have earned all-expenses paid trips to Washington, D.C. to compete with the other winners from across America for recognition as the nation's ten top volunteers for 2000; and
Whereas, four other South Carolina students were awarded bronze medallions as Distinguished Finalists in the service recognition program: Lesley Fondren of North Myrtle Beach High School, Moryah Jenkins of Ridge View High School, Monica Lemmond of Clover High School, and Krista Shirley of Lexington High School; and
Whereas, the success of the State of South Carolina, the strength of our communities, and the overall vitality of American society depend, in great measure, upon the dedication of young people like Erica Rymer and Reid Coggins and their fellow student finalists who use their considerable talents and resources to serve others. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly commend Erica Rymer of Lexington County and an eighth grader at White Knoll Middle School and Reid Coggins of York County and a senior at Fort Mill High School for their selection as the two top youth volunteers in South Carolina for 2000 and congratulate them on their receipt of the silver medallion from the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards Program, and recognize the four other South Carolina students who were awarded bronze medallions as Distinguished Finalists in the program: Lesley Fondren of North Myrtle Beach High School, Moryah Jenkins of Ridge View High School, Monica Lemmond of Clover High School, and Krista Shirley of Lexington High School.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Erica Rymer, Reid Coggins, Lesley Fondren, Moryah Jenkins, Monica Lemmond, and Krista Shirley.
