S. Printed 1/29/04--H. [SEC 1/30/04 3:24 PM]
Read the first time January 27, 2004.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4610) to request the Budget and Control Board to name the chapel at the MacDougall Correctional Institution at Ridgeville in honor of James W. "Jimmy" Dukes who has participated, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
ROBERT W. LEACH, SR. for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE BUDGET AND CONTROL BOARD TO NAME THE CHAPEL AT THE MACDOUGALL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION AT RIDGEVILLE IN HONOR OF JAMES W. "JIMMY" DUKES WHO HAS PARTICIPATED IN MINISTRIES AND PROJECTS AT THIS FACILITY SINCE IT OPENED AND WHO WAS THE PERSON MOST INSTRUMENTAL IN THE BUILDING OF THE CHAPEL.
Whereas, in the 1960's when the MacDougall Correctional Institution at Ridgeville was built, a group of men from Summerville realized that these young men in the facility would need guidance as well as personal items in their new environment; and
Whereas, many men helped with the MacDougall ministry and the "Starter Kit" project, but the work of James W. "Jimmy" Dukes stood out, and he continued to serve as long as access to the facility was available; and
Whereas, in the 1970's Jimmy Dukes realized the need for a chapel at the MacDougall campus and undertook the enormous task of raising funds, getting state approval, and building this chapel. He worked untiringly for years to accomplish this feat; and
Whereas, his only request was that the chapel have a baptistery. He chaired a thirty-five member committee drawn from all faiths, groups, and areas of the Lowcountry to get this project completed; and
Whereas, this extraordinary man has given of his time and talents for over four decades to help inmates incarcerated at MacDougall in ways in which they could not do for themselves; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly would like to recognize and honor Jimmy Dukes by naming the chapel at MacDougall in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Budget and Control Board to name the chapel at the MacDougall Correctional Institution at Ridgeville in honor of James W. "Jimmy" Dukes who has participated in ministries and projects at this facility since it opened and who was the person most instrumental in the building of the chapel.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Budget and Control Board.
