To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4180), to request the Department of Transportation to name a portion of South Carolina Highway 45 in Berkeley County, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
RICHARD M. QUINN, JR., for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO NAME A PORTION OF SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 45 IN BERKELEY COUNTY "DEWITT WILLIAMS BOULEVARD".
Whereas, Senator Dewitt Williams was born in the town of St. Stephen on October 12, 1919; and
Whereas, he is the son of W. D. and Gertrude Williams; and
Whereas, Senator Williams received his Bachelor of Science Degree from Allen University in 1950 and his Master of Arts Degree from South Carolina State University in 1960; and
Whereas, he is married to the former Dollie Bradley, and they are the proud parents of two children; and
Whereas, from 1941 to 1945, Senator Williams faithfully served his country as a member of the United States Army; and
Whereas, he has compiled an exemplary record of public service throughout his lifetime, which includes service as a state highway commissioner, a member of the St. Stephen Town Council, Mayor Pro Tempore of the Town of St. Stephen, member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, and current service as a South Carolina State Senator; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that the portion of South Carolina Highway 45 in Berkeley County that begins at the western town limit of St. Stephen and ends at the "Dewitt Williams Bridge" be named "Dewitt Williams Boulevard" as a lasting tribute to this distinguished South Carolinian. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation designate and name the highway described in this resolution "Dewitt Williams Boulevard" and install appropriate markers or signs at places along the highway containing the words "Dewitt Williams Boulevard" as the department considers advisable.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and to Senator Dewitt Williams.
