TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF OLD RIVER ROAD IN THE TOWN OF FORK FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH FIRST LOOP ROAD TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 41 "THOMAS NEAL ROGERS HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Mr. Thomas Neal Rogers was born on November 20, 1936, in Mullins, the son of the late Albert Jasper and Kate Dowdle Rogers, and died on January 9, 2016; and
Whereas, he graduated from Clemson College with a degree in Animal Husbandry and Agriculture; and
Whereas, a lifelong successful farmer and businessman, Mr. Rogers served as chairman of the Dillon Soil and Water Conservation Service, a board member of the Marco Rural Water Company, and treasurer of Fork Baptist Church; and
Whereas, he also served on the South Carolina Pork Board, the Federal Land Bank Board of Directors, Dillon County Board of Education, Pee Dee Academy Board of Directors, and the Camp Pinehill Board of Directors; and
Whereas, he is survived by his devoted wife of forty-eight years, Gail Turner Rogers, their two children, and many other family members and friends; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the many accomplishments of this son of South Carolina by having a portion of Old River Road in the Town of Fork named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the portion of Old River Road in the town of Fork from its intersection with First Loop Road to its intersection with South Carolina Highway 41 "Thomas Neal Rogers Highway" and erect appropriate signs or markers containing this designation.
