CONGRATULATING THE HONORABLE ALISON RENEE LEE OF RICHLAND COUNTY, FORMERLY SOUTH CAROLINA ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE, ON HER ELECTION TO THE BENCH OF THE CIRCUIT COURT FOR THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, The Honorable Alison Renee Lee of Richland County, formerly an Administrative Law Judge for the State of South Carolina, was elected as the state's first female African-American Circuit Court Judge by the General Assembly on February 10, 1999; and
Whereas, in its screening report, the Judicial Merit Selection Commission found Judge Lee to have a keen intellect, to be an absolutely outstanding person, and to be an exceptionally well-qualified candidate for the Circuit Court bench; and
Whereas, this achievement is just the most recent in a lifelong pursuit of excellence, beginning with earning an undergraduate degree from Vassar College and a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Tulane University Law School; and
Whereas, Judge Lee has worked as a law clerk for the Louisiana Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and as a law clerk for Judge C. Tolbert Goolsby, Jr., with the South Carolina Court of Appeals; and
Whereas, she was an associate with the McNair Law Firm in Columbia for five years and later served for five years as staff counsel for the South Carolina Legislative Council; and
Whereas, in 1994 she was elected by the General Assembly as an Administrative Law Judge and served in this capacity with distinction until her election to the Circuit Court; and
Whereas, she is married to Kenzil Summey and together they are the proud and loving parents of a son and a daughter; and
Whereas, her consistent excellence in her various pursuits has prepared her for this new task which requires both wisdom and humility. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly do hereby congratulate The Honorable Alison Renee Lee of Richland County, formerly Administrative Law Judge for the State of South Carolina, on her election as a Circuit Court Judge for the State of South Carolina.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to The Honorable Alison Renee Lee.
