U-S Representative Jim Clyburn is participating in a ceremony at South Carolina State University today, as the school receives a one-hundred-thousand dollar check. The check from Shaw/AREVA, a corporation that operates in the Savannah River Site, will support the school’s Summer Nuclear Science Institute. The Institute is designed to expose high school students to nuclear science and different engineering fields.
The Institute attracts more than 60 participants each year. The ceremony is being held at the school’s Stanbeck Museum and Planetarium.
