Students To Attend Conference

Local students to attend Washington,
South Carolina Youth Conferences


  Eight local students were chosen for the annual Rural Electric Youth Tour in Washington D.C.
  Caley Bright of South Aiken High, Caroline DuBose of Wyman King Academy, Elizabeth Cleveland of Strom Thurmond High, Christine Green of Aiken High, Brandon Pope of Aiken High, Beyonce Watson of Aiken High (statewide representative), Evan Williams of Silver Bluff High and Hagan Williams of Wyman King Academy will be attending the tour. The students sponsored by Aiken Electric Cooperative to attend the all-expense-paid Washington Youth Tour were selected on the basis of their academic achievements, school activities, community service and a personal interview.
  South Carolina’s electric cooperatives have sponsored the Washington Youth Tour since 1964. The trip is designed to educate students about our nation’s capital, the sacrifices made for our freedom and the value of the cooperative way of business. The South Carolina students will visit landmarks such as the White House, Arlington Cemetery, Mount Vernon, the Washington Monument and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  The students return home with a greater appreciation of our nation’s leaders, a respect for the beauty of Washington, D.C. and friendships that will last a lifetime.
  Five more students, Elaina Cummings of Cyber Academy of SC, Rachel Larson of Aiken High, Kenyon Ligons of Ridge Spring Monetta High, Brianna Lopez of Aiken High and Caleb Smith of Aiken High will be a part of the Cooperative Youth Summit.  These students will spend four days in Columbia, SC learning how cooperatives and state government works, while enhancing leadership skills. They’ll also spend time at some of the state’s most well known venues like the Statehouse and River Banks Zoo.


Burglary
Sentence


  Daniel Tyler Huneycutt, age 26, pled guilty to Burglary (Non-Violent) Second Degree and Grand Larceny in Saluda County this week and was sentenced to a combined 12 years in the South Carolina Department of Corrections followed by 5 years of probation.
  Circuit Court Judge William P. Keesley sen-tenced Huneycutt to this consecutive sentence.
  Assistant Solicitor Robby McNair handled the prosecution of this case and the Saluda County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation.
  Last year, Huneycutt forced entry into a home stealing a television along with several firearms. Huneycutt broke a large coin jar during the burglary and left blood behind. Law enforcement collected swabs of the blood and sent them to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, commonly known as SLED, for forensic testing. SLED was able to match the blood to the DNA profile of Huneycutt.
  Huneycutt has prior burglary, drug, and weapon convictions.
