VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR JOYCE KOH, AN AWARD-WINNING POLITICAL AND GENERAL ASSIGNMENT REPORTER WITH WLTX, AND TO WISH HER CONTINUED SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS IN HER FUTURE ENDEAVORS AS SHE LEAVES COLUMBIA TO RETURN TO HER HOME STATE OF MARYLAND.
Whereas, it is altogether fitting and proper that members of the South Carolina Senate should pause in their deliberations to express their gratitude to Joyce Koh for her significant contributions to journalism in the Midlands; and
Whereas, the multimedia editor of her school newspaper, the Diamondback, she earned dual bachelor's degrees in broadcast journalism and art history from the University of Maryland; and
Whereas, she began her career at WLTX News19 in March of 2015 and was nominated for an Emmy award for her coverage of the removal of the Confederate flag from the grounds of the State House; and
Whereas, a member of the State House Press Corps since she first came to Columbia, Ms. Koh also has covered hurricanes, presidential primaries, and the historic flood of the century; and
Whereas, some of her favorite stories have included the Ferguson protests at the White House, the Maryland gubernatorial elections, and the recent case before the Supreme Court of the United States involving the Pregnancy Discrimination Act; and
Whereas, Ms. Koh hopes to pursue further career opportunities closer to the nation's capital and one day would like to become a foreign correspondent, reporting from conflict zones overseas; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Senate is grateful for the dedication that Joyce Koh has given to reporting in Columbia, and the members wish her many years of fulfillment as she pursues her career in journalism. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize and honor Joyce Koh, an award-winning political and general assignment reporter with WLTX, and wish her continued success and happiness in her future endeavors as she leaves Columbia to return to her home state of Maryland.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Joyce Koh.
