A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR HORRY COUNTY FARMERS RICHARD AND MEGAN FLOYD FOR THEIR OUTSTANDING WORK AS SOUTH CAROLINA FARMERS AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR RECEIVING THE 2014 SOUTH CAROLINA FARM BUREAU YOUNG FARMER AND RANCHER ACHIEVEMENT AWARD.

Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are pleased to learn that Richard and Megan Floyd of Horry County have been honored with the 2014 South Carolina Farm Bureau Young Farmer and Rancher Achievement Award; and

Whereas, a grassroots, nonprofit organization, the South Carolina Farm Bureau celebrates and supports family farmers, locally-grown food, and rural lands through legislative advocacy, education, and community outreach; and

Whereas, Farm Bureau cultivates understanding about agriculture's importance to South Carolina's local economies; and

Whereas, a member of the Horry-Conway chapter of the South Carolina Farm Bureau, Richard Floyd farms tobacco, corn, soybeans, cotton, and wheat; and

Whereas, he and his beloved wife, Megan Floyd, are rearing their nineteen-month-old daughter on their family farm with the hopes that she will continue to enjoy life on the farm with a desire to spend her lifetime there; and

Whereas, in the early years of their marriage, Megan worked in the city as a registered radiology technician, helping with the farm on her days off, but after their daughter was born, she decided to stay full time on the farm; and

Whereas, both active in the Horry-Conway chapter of the Farm Bureau, Richard serves as the member for Horry-Conway; Megan chairs the women's committee for Farm Bureau, and they both serve on the young farmer and rancher committee; and

Whereas, although Megan's childhood was filled with memories of her grandparents' farm, she has learned a great deal from membership in the state's Farm Bureau, including the role of the state and federal governments in regulating all aspects of farming; and

Whereas, the Floyds also run a monument engraving business which belonged to Richard's great-uncle; and

Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is grateful for the legacy that young farmers like Richard and Megan Floyd create in the Palmetto State through determination and hard work, and the members commend the Floyds for being presented the 2014 South Carolina Farm Bureau Young Farmer and Rancher Achievement Award. 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 honor Horry County farmers Richard and Megan Floyd for their outstanding work as South Carolina farmers and congratulate them for receiving the 2014 South Carolina Farm Bureau Young Farmer and Rancher Achievement Award.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Richard and Megan Floyd.
