Senator Floyd Nicholson Selected to Chair South Carolina Revolutionary War Sestercentennial Commission Education Committee

Columbia, S.C., - South Carolina State Senator Floyd Nicholson was selected to Chair the South Carolina Revolutionary War Sestercentennial Commission’s Education Committee at the Commission’s January strategic planning retreat.  The South Carolina Revolutionary War Sestercentennial Commission (SCARSC) is tasked with developing a proper observance of the 250th Anniversary of the American victory in the Revolution and the birth South Carolina.

The SCARSC Education Committee is responsible for developing avenues for educating South Carolinians and visitors about South Carolina’s substantial contribution to winning the war against Great Britain.  The Committee will research and compile materials already offered by groups such as the Daughters of the American Revolution, SC Historical Society, and the National Park Service.  Committee members will work with state agencies such as SC-ETV and SC Parks, Recreation and Tourism to develop new materials and the SC Department of Education to provide grade appropriate materials for teachers.

Charles Baxley, Chair of the South Carolina Revolutionary War Sestercentennial Commission, said “We are so fortunate to have Senator Nicholson serve as the chair of this very important committee. His experience as an educator and his enthusiasm will be a driving force to share the often unknown contributions made by South Carolina in winning the Revolution.”

Senator Floyd represents District 10, which comprises significant portions of Abbeville, Greenwood, McCormick, and Saluda Counties.  A native and long-time resident of Greenwood SC, Nicholson is a retired educator with a lengthy record of public service.  He previously served on the Greenwood City Council and then as Mayor of the city from 1994 to 2008.  In addition, he has held a wide range of leadership positions including Chairman of the Upper Savannah Council of Governments and President of the South Carolina Municipal Association.

This public history project is to last thirteen years and include a variety of programs and events to both educate and commemorate South Carolina’s contribution to winning the American Revolution.
