A HOUSE RESOLUTION

TO CONGRATULATE MAC MOREHEAD OF SPARTANBURG COUNTY FOR HIS REMARKABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA AND TO SALUTE HIM UPON ACHIEVING THE CELEBRATED RANK OF EAGLE SCOUT, THE HIGHEST AWARD IN SCOUTING.

Whereas, recently, Mac Morehead of Palmetto Council's Troop 2, sponsored by First Presbyterian Church of Spartanburg, successfully passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review and thus completed the requirements for the rank of Eagle Scout; and

Whereas, the son of McCall and Melissa Morehead, this Spartanburg High School (SHS) newly graduated senior was a member of the National Honor Society, an AP Scholar, and one of twenty-three at his school given the South Carolina Academic Honor Award. In addition, he was named SCHSL scholar athlete, granted the Presidential Award for Educational Excellence, and named a Palmetto Fellow. As a well-rounded student, Mac was a six-time letterman on the SHS tennis team, which has won the state championship for six consecutive years. This fine athlete was named All-Region for his junior and senior year. Mac was a representative to Palmetto Boys State in 2018 and will be attending Washington and Lee University in the fall of 2019; and

Whereas, Mac officially will receive the rank of Eagle Scout on Sunday, August 25, 2019; and

Whereas, for his Eagle project, Mac built and installed an agility course at the Spartanburg Humane Society; 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 plan, develop, and give 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 complete his Eagle Scout Board of Review; and

Whereas, only about five percent of Boy Scouts complete these rigorous requirements to achieve the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout; and

Whereas, the House is grateful for the legacy of Scouting in America and takes great pride in acknowledging the achievements of young South Carolinians like Mac Morehead 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, congratulate Mac Morehead of Spartanburg County for his remarkable accomplishments in the Boy Scouts of America and salute him upon achieving the celebrated rank of Eagle Scout, the highest award in Scouting.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Mac Morehead.
