BLYTHEWOOD (Dec. 31, 2015) – Council unanimously approved an award of $5,000 from the Town’s accommodation tax fund Monday evening for a reception on Feb. 6 at which Blythewood’s Boo Major, the USC equestrian coach, will be given the key to the Town of Blythewood by Mayor J. Michael Ross.

The invitation-only event will be held at One Wood Farm, the team’s home base on Syrup Mill Road, and will honor Major for her success during 19 years of coaching the Gamecocks. Major was twice named SEC Equestrian Coach of the Year and was named National Coach of the Year by the National Collegiate Equestrian Association in 2014. This capped a career in which she led her teams to two consecutive SEC championships in 2013 and 2014 and three consecutive NCEA Hunter Seat National Championships in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

The A-Tax Committee approved funding for the reception on Dec. 14 and sent their recommendation to Town Council for approval.
