Entry Title Date
Introduction Of The Hbcu Historic Preservation Program Reauthorization Act September 19, 2014
James Clyburn, D-SC
"I have seen the results firsthand. Several historic buildings at Allen, Claflin, and South Carolina State Universities, and Voorhees and Benedict Colleges in my district have been successfully restored. These structures are icons on their respective campuses and in their communities. They are living testaments to African American and South Carolina history. Arnett Hall at Allen University was designed by an African American architect and built by the students themselves in 1891. If this building were lost, that link to the past would be severed, never to be revived again. Through a grant from this program, it has been stabilized, restored and is being preserved. These results are not limited to South Carolina. Since its origin in 1996, 59 institutions have benefited in 20 different states."
Tribute To Dr. Fredrick M.G. Evans June 30, 2014
James Clyburn, D-SC
"As a lifelong member of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity, a brotherhood that we share, Dr. Evans continues to work with students at South Carolina State University as Dean of the School of Graduate Studies."
Red Bank Elementary School Business Mentor Program March 5, 2014
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"The Red Bank Elementary School Business Mentor Program engages children in learning by connecting them with local mentors affiliated with businesses in the Midlands community. Leaders from Michelin Tire Corporation, Lexington Medical Center, Prysmian Group, Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden, and he South Carolina State Museum have impacted close to 150 students over the past three years. By connecting the skills each student learns in the classroom to a professional environment, these bright children are given the opportunity to chase their dreams."
Agricultural Act Of 2014—Conference Report—Continued January 30, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"On January 9, in Jackson, TN; on January 13, in New Haven, CT; on January 14, in Roswell, NM; on January 17, in Philadelphia, PA; on January 17, in Albany, GA; on January 20, at Widener University; on January 21, at Purdue University; again on January 21, at Wakefield Elementary, in Turlock, CA; on January 24, at South Carolina State University; on January 27, in Carbondale, IL; on January 28, in Honolulu, HI—luckily, each one of them—“luckily,” that is a terrible word to use—in each one of these school shootings there have only been one or two or three people shot or injured. But it is just a matter of time before there is another Sandy Hook. When you are having school shootings at the rate of one every two school days, it is just a matter of time before somebody continues to pull that trigger over and over or someone does not intervene as quickly as they intervened in these situations."
Tribute To Andrew J. Lewis December 10, 2013
James Clyburn, D-SC
"Educated in Sumter County Public Schools, Mr. Lewis was valedictorian of his class at Lincoln High School. He graduated cum laude from Benedict College with a degree in mathematics. At Benedict, he was a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity, which means I am proud to call him a brother. He went on to receive a Master of Science degree from my alma mater, South Carolina State University. He also served honorably in the U.S. Army Air Forces, earning the rank of Technical Sergeant."
