VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND THE INDIAN LAND MIDDLE SCHOOL ACADEMIC TEAM FOR CAPTURING THE 2015 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP OF ACADEMICS TITLE AND TO HONOR THE TEAM'S EXCEPTIONAL SCHOLARS AND COACHES.
Whereas, fully prepared for the challenge, the Indian Land Middle School academic team crowned a successful regular season and regional tournament by capturing the 2015 State Championship of Academics title, defeating Williams Middle for the Division I crown at Winthrop University on Thursday, March 19, 2015; and
Whereas, sponsored by the Olde English Consortium, the championship match was the finale to a three-month competitive season of quiz-bowl contests in which students answer questions from an array of academic subjects; and
Whereas, questions ranged from "convert the number of stars in the U.S. flag to a binary number" (answer: 110010) for high school students to "what brass instrument resembling a tuba is named for the American 'March King'?" (answer: Sousaphone) for middle schoolers; and
Whereas, Head Coach Kay Sehorn, ably assisted by Coach Joseph Kincaid, honed her scholars into an academic championship machine and saw the fruits of her labors as her team walked off with the top prize; and
Whereas, the House of Representatives takes great pleasure in recognizing the young scholars of Indian Land Middle School on their fine accomplishment and expects to hear of continued great achievements in the years ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and commend the Indian Land Middle School academic team for capturing the 2015 State Championship of Academics title and honor the team's exceptional scholars and coaches.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Christopher Thorpe and Coach Kay Sehorn of Indian Land Middle School.
