H. 4813

Introduced by Rep. Hayes

S. Printed 3/4/14--H.

Read the first time March 4, 2014.

            

THE COMMITTEE ON

INVITATIONS AND MEMORIAL RESOLUTIONS

To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4813) to request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of West Calhoun Street in the Town of Dillon from its intersection with South First Avenue, etc., respectfully

REPORT:

That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:

LISTON D. BARFIELD for Committee.

            

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF WEST CALHOUN STREET IN THE TOWN OF DILLON FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH SOUTH FIRST AVENUE TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 301 "BILL COWARD, SR. MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "BILL COWARD, SR. MEMORIAL HIGHWAY".

Whereas, Mr. Bill Coward was born on January 17, 1932, in Dillon County to Lenneau Coward and Ruth Taylor; and

Whereas, at the age of ten, Mr. Coward worked for United States Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke's grandfather at J. B.'s drug store; and

Whereas, he served his country with distinction during the Korean Conflict; and

Whereas, in 1956 he opened his first store and was a very successful businessman in Dillon county who lived the American Dream until his tragic death in 1995; and

Whereas, he and his wife Frances were the proud parents of three sons; and

Whereas, it is fitting and proper to memorialize the legacy of this son of South Carolina by naming a portion of a street in his beloved Town of Dillon in his honor. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of West Calhoun Street in the Town of Dillon from its intersection with South First Avenue to its intersection with United States Highway 301 "Bill Coward, Sr. Memorial Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway that contain the words "Bill Coward, Sr. Memorial Highway".

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
