To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4376) to request that the Department of Transportation name the bridge that crosses the Saluda River along South Carolina Highway 20 in Anderson and Greenville Counties, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
W. GREG RYBERG for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES THE SALUDA RIVER ALONG SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 20 IN ANDERSON AND GREENVILLE COUNTIES THE "HAROLD L. DRENNON, JR. MEMORIAL BRIDGE", AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS BRIDGE THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "HAROLD L. DRENNON, JR. MEMORIAL BRIDGE".
Whereas, the Honorable Harold L. Drennon, Jr. was born on September 12, 1931 and died on December 28, 1995; and
Whereas, he and his wife Sara were married for forty-four years, and together raised three children; and
Whereas, Mr. Drennon was a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church in the Town of Pelzer where he served as a Deacon and Sunday School Teacher; and
Whereas, he served his country with honor as a Second Lieutenant during the Korean War and was honorably discharged as a Captain with the United States Army upon completion of his military career; and
Whereas, he was a member of the Pelzer Town Council; and
Whereas, his desire to improve the lives of his community's young people led him to serve as a teacher at Wren High School for thirty-two years, and serve as a principal at Concrete, Wren, and White Plains schools for ten years; and
Whereas, he was Wren High School's first football and basketball coach and was the announcer for their athletic events for about twenty-five years; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper for the members of the General Assembly to name the bridge that crosses the Saluda River along South Carolina Highway 20 in Anderson and Greenville Counties in honor of 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 name the bridge that crosses the Saluda River along South Carolina Highway 20 in Anderson and Greenville Counties the "Harold L. Drennon, Jr. Memorial Bridge", and erect appropriate markers or signs at this bridge that contain the words "Harold L. Drennon, Jr. Memorial Bridge".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
