At a February 26, 2013, dinner, the Palmetto Council of the Boy Scouts of America honored former S.C. Representative John Spratt during its Golden Eagle Dinner at Winthrop University. As part of the program Rock Hill attorney Ben Johnson (with Robinson Bradshaw & Hinson), an Eagle Scout who served as the chair of the Boy Scouts’ York District for four years, delivered these remarks about John Spratt. We are delighted to reprint them.
David White has often quoted our former law partner – John T. Roddey – who said that there is no limit on what a man can accomplish in life if he doesn’t care who gets the credit.
That’s John Spratt.
John arrived in Congress in 1983 and immediately built a reputation as an intelligent, hard worker. A work horse.
