Bucky Sellers, pre-engineering teacher at the Academy for the Arts, Science and Technology in Myrtle Beach, won the Volunteer of the Year award at the 2014 Palmetto Regional FIRST Robotics Competition at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center Feb. 28.
The award is presented to an individual, business or organization that consistently excels in their efforts with proven results in the areas of impact, leadership, personal commitment, community and historical contributions.
Sellers spearheaded Horry County Schools’ efforts to get robotics in the schools and to bring the regional competition to Myrtle Beach. He has been a mentor to all of the district’s teams as the program has gotten off the ground.
