Whereas, the Darlington High School Team included team captain Damon White, Josh Fowler, Tiffiney Wilkes, Susan Barber, Joel Grinkley and coaches Lynwood Lewis and Carolyn Keeney; and
Whereas, "Lifesmarts...the Ultimate Consumer Challenge" is designed to educate students about real-life consumer and marketplace issues in a fun, game-show format, by testing high school participants' knowledge of marketplace information on health, safety, environment, personal finances, technology and consumer law; and
Whereas, the Darlington High team, one of twelve teams from different states around the United States, defeated teams from Alabama and Virginia in the regional competition, and defeated an Arizona team in semi-final competition, and ultimately defeated a Minnesota team in the finals to win the contest; and
Whereas, Lifesmarts is sponsored in South Carolina by the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs, the National Coalition for Consumer Education (NCCE), and the MCI Foundation, and various local partners to help educate young people about consumer issues and decision-making they face today and will encounter in the future. Now therefore,
