To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4756), to request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 601 from its intersection with Interstate Highway 26 to its intersection with South Carolina Highway 33 in Orangeburg County in honor of Dr. M. Maceo Nance, Jr., etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
RONALD N. FLEMING, for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 601 FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 26 TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 33 IN ORANGEBURG COUNTY IN HONOR OF DR. M. MACEO NANCE, JR., PRESIDENT EMERITUS OF SOUTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY, AND TO PLACE APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ON THE HIGHWAY REFLECTING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Dr. M. Maceo Nance, Jr., a native of Columbia, South Carolina, obtained his early education in the city's public elementary and secondary schools, received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1949 from South Carolina State University, and received his Masters of Science degree from New York University in 1953; and
Whereas, from 1943 to 1946, he served his country with distinction as a member of the United States Navy; and
Whereas, Dr. Nance began his illustrious career at South Carolina State University in July, 1949, and through hard work, superior knowledge, and stellar performance, rose meteorically through the college's ranks from ROTC Supply Clerk to Director of the Student Center, to Assistant Business Manager, to Business Manager, to Vice-President for Business and Finance, to Acting President of the College, and to President of the College; and
Whereas, from June 23, 1968, the date he assumed the position as President of South Carolina State University, until his retirement from the presidency in 1986, he made innumerable contributions not only to South Carolina State University, but to the Orangeburg community, the State of South Carolina, and our nation; and
Whereas, these contributions have brought Dr. Nance many accolades, honors, and awards which include having bestowed upon him the title of President Emeritus of South Carolina State University, and being named the recipient of the following honorary degrees: Doctor of Laws - Morris Brown College at Atlanta University - 1968; Doctor of Humane Letters - Francis Marion College - 1975; Doctor of Laws - University of South Carolina - 1976; Doctor of Humane Letters - The Citadel Military College - 1983; Doctor of Humane Letters - Clemson University - 1983; Doctor of Humane Letters - Medical University of South Carolina - 1986; and Doctor of Humane Letters - South Carolina State University - 1988; and
Whereas, it is fitting that the portion of United States Highway 601 from its intersection with Interstate Highway 26 to its intersection with South Carolina Highway 33 in Orangeburg County be named in honor of this outstanding leader of our State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 601 from its intersection with Interstate Highway 26 to its intersection with South Carolina Highway 33 in Orangeburg County the "Dr. M. Maceo Nance, Jr. Highway", and to place appropriate markers or signs on this highway to reflect this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
