Cayce City Councilman Hunter Sox has been selected for the McLaughlin Scholarship to attend the Congress of New Urbanism in Oklahoma City in the second half of March.
“I am honored to have received the McLaughlin Scholarship,” said Sox. I look forward to using the education at CNU, and these connections, to make this side of the River the best place it can possibly be, for everyone.”
Out of hundreds of scholarship applications, only one McLaughlin scholarship is awarded per year. West Columbia City Councilmen David Moye and Mike Green are also attending the conference.
The scholarship is given to an elected or appointed official at an early part of their career. The recipient is given introductions to a network of national leaders in the practice of implementing redevelopment plans through innovative approaches to city planning, engineering and architecture to create more competitive and sustainable cities that are diverse, interesting and authentic places.
