MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Funding is in place to develop informational kiosks for the official South Carolina Hall of Fame that will be placed in various locations across the state.

Sen. Luke Rankin, R - Horry, helped secure $100,000 in state funding to develop these kiosks, which will include information about the Hall of Fame as well as video tributes for all 91 inductees that were produced by South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV).

The S.C. Hall of Fame's current physical location is the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. These kiosks will expand its presence throughout the Palmetto State. They will be housed at various museums, convention centers and other facilities.

"The board of trustees of the S.C. Hall of Fame is to be commended for all their efforts to recognize some of our state's most influential and legendary residents, both past and present," said Rankin. "Through the use of these informational kiosks, a greater number of individuals will learn the history of these inductees and the legacy they have left with us."

"We are so appreciative of Sen. Rankin's efforts to secure the funding needed to turn these kiosks into a reality," said Dr. Leo Twiggs, chairman of the board of trustees for the S.C. Hall of Fame. "We are so proud of everything the Hall of Fame has stood for and continues to stand for, which is to honor the men and women who have made all of us in South Carolina proud throughout the generations.
