Whereas, realizing the need to preserve our government through citizen participation in our political system, the General Assembly honors the crucial role of our state's schools to help students understand constitutional democracy through programs like "We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution" that encourages students to examine those fundamental principles and values; and
Whereas, Scholars Academy includes students from various schools coached by Georgianna Holley and promotes student achievement and academic success by encouraging an examination of government and politics through the We the People course; and
Whereas, team members Nathan Beasley, Michael Crumpler, Alex Garland, Alyssa Lundy, Sarah Martin, Emily Rhorick, Tyler Rhorick, Jake Sheehan, Sean Thompson, and Peter Yan studied our government and political system with Scholars Academy; and
Whereas, the Scholars Academy We the People team has won the state competition four times, and this year the team swept all six unit awards at the state competition, the first team in state history to win all six in one competition. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize the students of the Scholars Academy and their coach for winning the "We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution" state competition and to commend the students in the academy for their dedication and study that helped them succeed in this rigorous endeavor.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Coach Georgianna Holley and each member of the team.
