Saturday, March 8, 2014
Students from Lake Marion High School visited with State Treasurer Curtis Loftis in his office Feb. 26, on their trip to the South Carolina State Capitol Building. Loftis gave students a tour of his office and then engaged in a conversation about the duties of the state treasurer. The treasurer took questions from the students on education funding equality, his business background and ways to improve their community. Treasurer Loftis was extremely impressed with the behavior and intellectual curiosity of the students.
“The students from Lake Marion High School made me enthusiastic about the future of our state,” said Loftis. “They asked tough questions and were able to engage in a dialogue about the issues they feel are important. Their families and teachers deserve a great deal of credit for producing such smart and mature young people.”
