Whereas, Rick Kelly began his illustrious career with the State Budget and Control Board in 1981 and rose quickly through the ranks to become Director of the Division of Operations in 1992. In 1996, he was named Chief of Staff and Director of the Division of Operations of the State Budget and Control Board serving as the lead assistant to the Executive Director. On July 1, 1999, he took over the agency, succeeding Fred Carter, as Executive Director; and
Whereas, Rick Kelly has a keen mind and an incredible work ethic. These qualities are of great benefit and will help as he takes on duties overseeing business affairs, budgets, management of facilities, and safety issues at the University of South Carolina; and
Whereas, over the past two years, a number of notable achievements were made during his tenure as Executive Director of the State Budget and Control Board. In 1999, the board oversaw the state's first-ever investment of retirement funds in the stock market. Earlier this year, South Carolina conducted the largest bond sale in state history as part of the tobacco settlement; and
Whereas, under Rick Kelly's leadership and guidance, the board also renovated the historic Governor's Mansion, implemented the twenty-eight year retirement and TERI legislation, and began a strategic planning process. Prior to becoming executive director, he was also actively involved and supervised the day-to-day renovation project of the State House from 1995 through 1998; and
Whereas, Rick's professional affiliations include the Council of State Governments, serving on the Executive Committee from 1991-1992, and the National Association of State Directors and Administrators of General Services, serving as President from 1991-1992; and
Whereas, in 1995, he received the Order of the Palmetto, the highest honor bestowed upon an individual by the Governor; and
Whereas, Rick Kelly leaves the South Carolina State Budget and Control Board after an outstanding career of twenty years, during which he performed all his duties with selfless determination, honor, loyalty, and respect; and
Whereas, it is most befitting for the members of the General Assembly to pause in their deliberations to pay tribute to the distinguished service and extraordinary achievements Rick Kelly has provided to the Palmetto State.
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, recognize and commend Richard W.
