S. Printed 4/6/17--H.
Read the first time February 23, 2017.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3840) to request the Department of Transportation name the portion of Tigerville Road in Greenville from Tigerville Elementary School to its intersection with South Carolina Highway 11, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
JIMMY C. BALES for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF TIGERVILLE ROAD IN GREENVILLE FROM TIGERVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 11 "DAVID W. STATON MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS HIGHWAY CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Army Sergeant David W. Staton, a resident of Tigerville, was born on September 12, 1949; and
Whereas, on April 30, 1970, Sergeant Staton made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of his country when he lost his life as his helicopter was shot down by enemy fire in Thua Thien Province, Vietnam; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to forever remember Sergeant Staton's bravery by having a highway in Greenville County 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 Tigerville Road in Greenville from Tigerville Elementary School to its intersection with South Carolina Highway 11 "David W. Staton Memorial Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this highway containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
