TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND KEITH V. EUBANKS OF COLUMBIA, CHESS MASTER, FOR HIS OUTSTANDING ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN THE GAME OF CHESS AND FOR HIS MANY YEARS OF TEACHING THE GAME TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF THE PALMETTO STATE.
Whereas, few things afford keener pleasure to the General Assembly than recognizing those who nurture South Carolina's greatest resource, its youth, and chess master Keith V. Eubanks of Columbia, much admired in his role as both teacher and championship player, stands high among their number; and
Whereas, over the years, Mr. Eubanks has proven his exceptional skill in this mentally invigorating game through capturing multiple chess titles. Among other triumphs, in 2004 he took home South Carolina's State Chess Championship title, and in 2001 he entered the Carolina Classics, a chess tournament that draws competitors from both Carolinas, and came away with the event's top prize. In 1999, he won the United States Class Championship; and
Whereas, Mr. Eubanks, the 2007 president of the South Carolina Chess Association, has worked endless hours promoting chess in the schools of South Carolina, teaching chess to the state's children and teens, forming chess clubs for them to help develop skills, and conducting seminars on the game; and
Whereas, the General Assembly is pleased to add its voice of commendation to the many expressions of warm praise honoring this esteemed son of South Carolina. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize and commend Keith V. Eubanks of Columbia, chess master, for his outstanding accomplishments in the game of chess and for his many years of teaching the game to the young people of the Palmetto State.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Keith V. Eubanks.
