VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO CONGRATULATE LAURA KATE GAMBLE OF SUMMERVILLE, A RISING SENIOR AT WOFFORD COLLEGE, ON BEING NAMED THE SCHOOL'S THIRTIETH PRESIDENTIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOLAR AND TO WISH HER MUCH SUCCESS ON HER UPCOMING TRAVELS AND STUDIES.
Whereas, on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, President Benjamin B. Dunlap of Wofford College announced that Laura Kate Gamble of Summerville has been chosen as the school's thirtieth Presidential International Scholar, a coveted position that allows the selected rising senior to travel to developing countries during the coming fall semester for the purpose of researching an independent project; and
Whereas, the Presidential International Scholar is chosen personally each year by Wofford's president as "the singular student best fitted to benefit humankind." According to President Dunlap, "Laura Kate Gamble is an extraordinary combination of scholarly brilliance, energetic creativity, and generous compassion--not only the perfect embodiment of what we seek for the Presidential International Scholar but what we want Wofford students to become. She is sure to make the most of this remarkable opportunity"; and
Whereas, Ms. Gamble, who is majoring in biology and Spanish with a concentration in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, is the daughter of Donnie and Ginny Gamble of Summerville and a graduate of Pinewood Preparatory School in the same city. A member of Honor Council and Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority, she is also a Dean's List student and serves as a volunteer with Wofford's Math Academy and ARCH programs; and
Whereas, during her tenure as the 2013-2014 Presidential International Scholar, the twenty-one-year-old will travel to Nepal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Peru, and Haiti to study how nongovernmental organizations are fighting poverty in those countries; and
Whereas, proud of her outstanding accomplishments and grateful for her servant's heart, the Senate takes great pleasure in honoring Laura Kate Gamble as Wofford's 2013-2014 Presidential International Scholar. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, congratulate Laura Kate Gamble of Summerville, a rising senior at Wofford College, on being named the school's thirtieth Presidential International Scholar and to wish her much success on her upcoming travels and studies.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Laura Kate Gamble.
