TO PROCLAIM THE WEEK OF MARCH 25-30, 2002, AS "SOUTH CAROLINA MARINE AND WILDERNESS INSTITUTE WEEK" AND TO URGE COMMUNITY SUPPORT AND PARTICIPATION IN THE REDUCTION AND PREVENTION OF JUVENILE CRIME.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina support the reduction and prevention of youth crime and declare that March 25-30, 2002, as "South Carolina Marine and Wilderness Institute Week"; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Marine and Wilderness Institute's vision is to provide exceptional service for at-risk and delinquent youth and their families through a partnership with the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice; and
Whereas, providing a balanced approach to meeting public safety needs and reducing crime produces a safer South Carolina, where citizens benefit from the reduced risk of harm; and
Whereas, stopping the younger juveniles from progressing any further into the juvenile justice system requires special emphasis in the areas of prevention and intervention and the support of businesses, local communities and organizations, law enforcement, the legislature, and other state agencies; and
Whereas, the importance of education is a key element of each program, and the students are strongly encouraged to finish high school and continue their education; and
Whereas, the students at each of the Marine and Wilderness facilities perform hundreds of hours of community service, making their communities a better place to live and work and, at the same time, learning a valuable lesson of the importance of giving back to the community; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Marine and Wilderness Institute's balanced approach of discipline, respect, modeling, and responsibility is based on more than thirty years of successful experience with youth; and
Whereas, the General Assembly commends the South Carolina Marine and Wilderness Institute for its challenging work with delinquent youth and declares the week of March 25-30, 2002, as "South Carolina Marine and Wilderness Institute Week". Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina proclaim the week of March 25-30, 2002, as "South Carolina Marine and Wilderness Institute Week" and urge community support and participation in the reduction and prevention of juvenile crime.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Marine and Wilderness Institute.
