Whereas, Beth Hutchison has been actively involved in School District Five for over twenty-five years. She has volunteered in the classroom, served as PTO president at Harbison West Elementary, chaired Irmo High's School Improvement Council, and served as chair of the successful 1996 District Five School Bond referendum, which resulted in new classrooms and renovated facilities across the district.

Whereas, this student-focused champion for early childhood education is an advocate for environmental sustainability and awareness, a supporter of the district's magnet school programs, and a strong advocate for the teachers and staff. She especially enjoys watching District Five students receive their diplomas from Irmo, Dutch Fork, Chapin, and Spring Hill high schools; and
Whereas, Ms. Hutchison spent her career working in higher education. She holds a bachelor's degree in journalism with a public relations focus and a master's degree in public administration, both from the University of South Carolina. Now a delighted grandmother, she is also the proud mother of two children, both of whom graduated from Irmo High School; and
Whereas, the House of Representatives, profoundly grateful for Beth Hutchison's many years of faithfulness in serving the people of South Carolina, takes great pleasure in commending her for her contributions to quality education in this great State. Now, therefore,
