To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3963) to request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the junction of Cross Hill Road and Devine Street in the City of Columbia "Councilwoman Leona Plaugh Memorial Intersection", etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:

TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE JUNCTION OF CROSS HILL ROAD AND DEVINE STREET IN THE CITY OF COLUMBIA "COUNCILWOMAN LEONA PLAUGH MEMORIAL INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the Honorable Leona Kirby Plaugh was born on July 3, 1950, and entered into eternal rest on September 28, 2016; and
Whereas, Columbia City Councilwoman Plaugh and her devoted husband, Joel Allen Plaugh, were married in 1971, and together they proudly raised their son Allen; and
Whereas, Councilwoman Plaugh was a 1972 graduate of the University of South Carolina; and
Whereas, she served one year as a teacher at Lower Richland Middle School before taking a job in Sumter as a community planner. Later, she joined the Central Midlands Regional Planning Council before becoming community development assistant for the City of Columbia. After serving several years as assistant city manager for the City of Columbia, she was promoted to the office of city manager; and
Whereas, after leaving her post with the City of Columbia, Leona Kirby Plaugh was elected to a seat on Columbia City Council and was a staunch advocate for the residents of her district until her death; and
Whereas, she was a long-time faithful member of College Place United Methodist Church; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to forever remember the good works of this public servant by having an intersection in the City of Columbia named in her 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 intersection located at the junction of Cross Hill Road and Devine Street in the City of Columbia "Councilwoman Leona Plaugh Memorial Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Department of Transportation.
