This past Tuesday morning the Loris area woke up to a white surprise. In the early morning hours the temperatures dropped and delivered a layer of snow and ice covering everything in white. The heart of downtown Loris along the railroad tracks can be seen covered in a layer of snow.

Senator nominates

.

student to academy

 

U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) announced the nominations of 48 South Carolina students to the United States Military Service Academies for the class of 2019, including the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Co., and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, N.Y. In advance of this round of nominations, staff from Senator Scott’s state offices hosted 11 information sessions across the state.
“I am extremely proud to nominate 48 South Carolina students for admission to U.S. Military Service Academies. Since shortly after the founding of our great nation, our academies have produced some of the best and brightest military leaders in the world and provided a world-class education for their students,” said Senator Scott. “These young South Carolinians represent some of our state’s best and I am grateful for their willingness to wear our nation’s uniform and serve.”
Senator Scott’s local nomination, including the student’s high school, hometown and county for the class of 2019 is:
Micah Floyd, Green Sea Floyds High School (Loris, Horry).
To be considered for an appointment to a service academy, applicants must be nominated by a Member of Congress or other authorized nominating source. However, final admission is determined by the respective academy.
To be considered for a nomination from Senator Scott, students were required to submit an application, SAT/ACT scores, high school transcripts and three letters of recommendation. Each candidate was then interviewed by community and business leaders and distinguished members of the military, including many alumni of one of the service academies.
South Carolina students interested in applying for future nominations or for more information about the nomination process to the Service Academy can call the Service Academy Coordinator at (803) 771-6112.
