The S.C. Association of Counties recognized Archie Scott for his dedication and service to the S.C. Association of Counties Board of Directors at the council’s December meeting.
Waymon Mumford, president of the Association and a member of Florence County Council, said Scott was an excellent board member for the S.C. Association of Counties (SCAC). He served on the board from 2011-2020. He was a member of the Legislative Committee from 2011-2020 and a member of the County Government Intergovernmental Relations Policy Steering Committee. He is a graduate of the Institute of Government completing Level I in 2009 and completing Level II in 2011.
Mumford said Scott would be missed from the board.
Mumford also noted that if Scott had won his election, he would have been third vice-president of the SCAC Board and would have been in line to be president of the SCAC Board in three years.
