U.S. Sen. Tim Scott to speak at Voorhees College chapel service

January 16, 2014

Sen. Tim Scott will be the featured speaker at Voorhees College weekly student chapel service on January 21 at 11 a.m. in St. Philip’s Episcopal Chapel on campus.
 
Growing up poor in a single parent household in North Charleston, S.C., Scott learned the importance of faith, hard work and living within your means. By understanding the basic economic principles Washington so often forgets, and with the same determination he brings to advancing conservative principles in the Senate, Scott grew from his humble beginnings to build one of the most successful Allstate agencies in South Carolina.
 
Prior to being sworn in to the Senate, he served in the United States House of Representatives from 2011-2013, where he was a member of House leadership and sat on the influential House Rules Committee. He also served on Charleston County Council for 13 years, including four terms as chair and in the South Carolina House of Representatives for two years, where he was elected chairman of the Freshman Caucus and House Whip. He was the owner of Tim Scott Allstate and partner of Pathway Real Estate Group.
