U.S. Sen. Tim Scott to speak at Voorhees
U.S. Senator Tim Scott will be the featured speaker at Voorhees College’s weekly student chapel service at 11 a.m. Jan. 21 in St. Philip’s Episcopal Chapel on the Denmark campus.
Growing up poor in a single-parent household in North Charleston, Scott learned the importance of faith, hard work and living within his 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 U.S. 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 chairman, and in the S.C. House 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.
