A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE TWO-MILE PORTION OF STATE HIGHWAY 93 IN CLEMSON THAT RUNS FROM U.S. HIGHWAY 76 TO THE OCONEE COUNTY LINE (LAKE HARTWELL) IN PICKENS COUNTY THE "WALTER T. COX BOULEVARD" IN HONOR OF CLEMSON UNIVERSITY ICON, WALTER THOMPSON COX, WHO HAS SERVED AS COACH, DEAN, AND PRESIDENT OF CLEMSON FOR MORE THAN SIXTY-FIVE YEARS AND TO INSTALL APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ON THE HIGHWAY CONTAINING THE WORDS THE "WALTER T. COX BOULEVARD".

    Amend Title To Conform

Whereas, the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina are proud to honor such a giving and dedicated man as Walter Thompson Cox by naming a portion of State Highway 93 in Clemson in his honor; and

Whereas, Walter T. Cox was born September 19, 1918, in Belton to Walter T. Cox and Grace Campbell Cox; and

Whereas, Dean Cox began his relationship with Clemson University as an undergraduate student and football player in 1935, and he received a B.S. in Arts and Sciences in 1939; he continued at Clemson with postgraduate study from 1939 to 1940; and

Whereas, while Walter Cox played football at Clemson, the 1939 Tiger Team defeated Boston College in the Cotton Bowl in January 1940, and he was later inducted into the Clemson University Athletic Hall of Fame; and

Whereas, in 1940, Dean Cox began his employment with Clemson as Assistant Football Coach, Athletic Business Manager, and Baseball Coach, and he was the Director of Public Relations and Alumni Affairs and Assistant to the President from 1950 to 1955; and

Whereas, in 1955, Walter Cox became the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, an influential position he held for thirty years during which Clemson became civilian, co-educational, and desegregated; and

Whereas, he was called by the Clemson Board of Trustees to become Clemson University's tenth President in 1985 and Special Assistant to the President and Acting Vice President for Institutional Advancement in 1986 until he retired in 1987 with the title President Emeritus; and

Whereas, Walter Cox has been active in many distinguished organizations serving on the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, American Legion, Clemson University Chapter of Blue Key, Tiger Brotherhood, Clemson First Baptist Church, and has served on the board of directors of many corporations and associations; and

Whereas, Dean Cox received numerous prestigious awards including the Clemson University Distinguished Alumni Award, Clemson Medallion, Department of the Army Outstanding Civil Service Medal, and Order of the Palmetto; and

Whereas, Walter Cox was married to the late Mary Johnson Cox for more than forty-five years and is the proud father of three sons, Walter Jr., Frank, and William; and one daughter, Grace Thompson Kerns; and the loving grandfather to five grandchildren; and

Whereas, he is currently married to Janelle Garrett Cox and has two stepdaughters, Pauline Greer and Jeanie Waddington, and three stepgrandchildren; and

Whereas, it is fitting and proper for the Department of Transportation to designate a portion of State Highway 93 in Clemson in tribute to a man who represents "the epitome of what love and loyalty for Clemson University are all about". Now, therefore,

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

That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina request that the Department of Transportation name the two-mile portion of State Highway 93 in Clemson that runs from U.S. Highway 76 to the Oconee County Line (Lake Hartwell) in Pickens County the "Walter T. Cox Boulevard" in honor of Clemson University Icon, Walter Thompson Cox, who has served as Coach, Dean, and President of Clemson for more than sixty-five years and to install appropriate markers or signs on the highway containing the words the "Walter T. Cox Boulevard".

That the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources is requested to name the boat landing on the Santee River where U. S. Highway 17-A and S.C. Highway 41 cross the Santee River above Jamestown in Berkeley County the "Lenud's Ferry Boat Landing". Appropriate signs containing the words "Lenud's Ferry Boat Landing" shall be placed on the property through locally generated funding by the Department of Natural Resources.

Be it further resolved that nothing in this or any similar concurrent resolution may be construed as changing addresses for purposes of the operation of the county 911 system.

Be it further resolved that copies of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and Walter Thompson Cox.
