TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR WILLIAM EVANS FEW FOR HIS REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENTS IN BOY SCOUTS AND TO CONGRATULATE HIM UPON ACHIEVING THE HONORED RANK OF EAGLE SCOUT, THE HIGHEST AWARD IN SCOUTING.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are pleased to learn that William Evans Few of Troop 37 of the Indian Waters Council has successfully completed the requirements for the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout; and
Whereas, Evans is the son of Wesley Dodgen and Kimberly Evans Few and the brother of Thomas, MacRae, MaryWesley, and the late Fielder Jennings Few. A senior at A. C. Flora High School, he received the Principal's Award for students who exhibit academic excellence, character, school involvement, leadership, community service, and athletic participation; and
Whereas, a participant in Youth in Government and a delegate to Palmetto Boys State, Evans serves as the vice president of the Falcon Republicans and of the fishing club at A. C. Flora. He has been honored with induction into the National Honor Society, and he is a member of the school's baseball and swimming teams; and
Whereas, a faithful member of Shandon United Methodist Church, Evans participates in youth activities with keen interest. He takes part annually in the youth mission project trip to Hollywood, South Carolina, where his church ministers to enrich the lives of those living in the Petersfield community; and
Whereas, to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, a Boy Scout must demonstrate that he lives by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law in his daily life; he must demonstrate leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or his community; and he must earn a total of twenty-one merit badges, actively serve in a position of responsibility within his troop for six months, take part in a Scoutmaster conference, and successfully complete an Eagle Scout board of review; and
Whereas, Evans's Eagle Scout project involved many hours spent in constructing a brick patio at the entrance to the Scout meeting room at Shandon United Methodist Church, where he added a concrete bench and landscaped the area; and
Whereas, having successfully passed his Eagle Boards in June 2014, Evans will receive the rank of Eagle Scout officially at a special ceremony to be held at Shandon United Methodist Church in Columbia on February 22, 2015; and
Whereas, only seven percent of Boy Scouts complete these rigorous requirements to achieve the coveted rank of Eagle Scout; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the timeless legacy of Scouting in America and take great pride in acknowledging the accomplishments of young South Carolinians like Evans Few who selflessly give of their time, talents, and energy to enrich their local communities and our State. 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 William Evans Few for his remarkable achievements in Boy Scouts and congratulate him upon achieving the honored rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award in Scouting.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to William Evans Few.
