Read the first time April 27, 2017.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 665) to request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the interchange of I-585 and East Campus Boulevard, lying between Valley Falls Road and Business I-85, 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 INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE INTERCHANGE OF I-585 AND EAST CAMPUS BOULEVARD, LYING BETWEEN VALLEY FALLS ROAD AND BUSINESS I-85, "TONEY J. LISTER INTERCHANGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.
Whereas, a native of Spartanburg, Toney J. Lister is a graduate of the University of South Carolina and the USC School of Law. Mr. Lister is a well-respected attorney and has practiced law in Spartanburg County since 1974. He served in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1974 to 1979 and for many years as a captain in the Navy Reserve; and
Whereas, Mr. Lister was appointed to the USC Board of Trustees in 1994, representing the 7th Judicial Circuit, and has served faithfully since. He has been the chairman of the Intercollegiate Athletic Committee, the Health Affairs Committee, and the Building and Grounds Committee and has completed numerous terms of service on the Executive Committee of the Board; and
Whereas, Mr. Lister has also served as an ex-officio member of the Spartanburg County Commission for Higher Education. His service and advocacy for USC Upstate has been immeasurable over the years. Any issues related to USC Upstate would be unofficially vetted through Mr. Lister before the board would take action. His influence on the Board of Trustees has impacted the growth, quality, expansion, and image of USC Upstate as a vital part of the USC system; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to the accomplishments and public service of this son of South Carolina by naming the interchange in front of the University of South Carolina Upstate in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the interchange of I-585 and East Campus Boulevard, lying between Valley Falls Road and Business I-85, "Toney J. Lister Interchange" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing the designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Department of Transportation.
