To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 632), requesting the Employment Security Commission to take the necessary steps to ensure that the new building at the Offices of the Commission be named for the Honorable C. Lem Harper, Sr., of Columbia, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
RICHARD M. QUINN, JR., for Committee.
REQUESTING THE EMPLOYMENT SECURITY COMMISSION TO TAKE THE NECESSARY STEPS TO ENSURE THAT THE NEW BUILDING AT THE OFFICES OF THE COMMISSION BE NAMED FOR THE HONORABLE C. LEM HARPER, SR., OF COLUMBIA.
Whereas, the Honorable C. Lem Harper, Sr., is a graduate of Columbia High School and attended the University of South Carolina and the Extension Division Real Estate School; and
Whereas, his record exemplifies one of performance and integrity. The following positions have been achieved through hard work and dedication: he has been president of C. Lem Harper Tailoring for fifty years; he served on the South Carolina Coordinating Council for Economic Development; he is past president of the South Carolina and Columbia Junior Chamber of Commerce; he is the past president of the Southern Conference of Football Officials Association; he is a member of the Richland Sertoma Club; he has served as a potentate's aide for the Jamil Shrine Temple; he is past National Americanism Chairman of the United States Jaycees; he served in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1967-71, and in the House he served on the Education and Public Works Committee and the Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee; and he was elected by the General Assembly to serve as commissioner of the South Carolina Employment Security Commission in 1971, and has served continuously on the commission ever since; and
Whereas, Lem Harper has been an outstanding member of the Employment Security Commission and has long been an excellent and dedicated public servant; and
Whereas, he is a truly distinguished South Carolinian who has given most generously of his time and talents to the people of the Palmetto State for many years, and it would indeed be most fitting and appropriate that his services be honored by naming for him the new building at the Employment Security Commission's Columbia Complex. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, requests the Employment Security Commission to take the necessary steps to ensure that the new building at the offices of the commission be named for the Honorable C. Lem Harper, Sr., of Columbia.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Honorable Samuel R. Foster, Chairman of the South Carolina Employment Security Commission.
