To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4685) to request that the Department of Transportation name the bridge in Berkeley County that forms the boundary between Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie along, 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 THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE IN BERKELEY COUNTY THAT FORMS THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN LAKE MARION AND LAKE MOULTRIE ALONG SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 45 THE "AMOS NATHANIEL ROGERS BRIDGE", AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS BRIDGE THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "AMOS NATHANIEL ROGERS BRIDGE".
Whereas, Reverend Amos Nathaniel Rogers was born in the Eadytown section of Pineville, South Carolina, the second of three sons born to Sam Rogers and Edna Smith Rogers; and
Whereas, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Morris College, and an Associate Degree in Theology from Emory University, and served as a United Methodist Church Pastor for twenty years; and
Whereas, Mr. Rogers is the widower of Clara Jones Rogers and is a devoted father, grandfather, and great grandfather; and
Whereas, he is in contact with all members of his community in a effort to be a role model for all individuals by sharing God's word as well as encouraging them to strive to be the very best citizens as they are able to be; and
Whereas, he was a classroom teacher for many years, a member of the United Education Association, a businessman, and a community leader; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper to forever recognize the accomplishments of this son of South Carolina by having a bridge in his native Berkeley County named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the bridge in Berkeley County that forms the boundary between Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie along South Carolina Highway 45 the "Amos Nathaniel Rogers Bridge", and erect appropriate markers or signs at this bridge that contain the words "Amos Nathaniel Rogers Bridge".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
