Introduced by Senators Vaughn, Fair, Verdin, Anderson and Thomas
S. Printed 5/7/08--H.
Read the first time May 1, 2008.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1334) to request the Department of Transportation name the new bridge on Hammett Bridge Road in Greenville County as the "Harold Hammett Memorial Bridge" and erect, 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 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE NEW BRIDGE ON HAMMETT BRIDGE ROAD IN GREENVILLE COUNTY AS THE "HAROLD HAMMETT MEMORIAL BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE SIGNS OR MARKERS ALONG BOTH HIGHWAY APPROACHES TO THIS BRIDGE THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "HAROLD HAMMETT MEMORIAL BRIDGE".
Whereas, the late Harold Hammett was a much loved and widely respected Greenville County farmer, historian, church, and civic leader who did much to enrich his community; and
Whereas, Mr. Hammett was a veteran of World War II, a graduate of North Greenville Baptist Academy and Furman University, a trustee of North Greenville College, and a lifelong member of Brushy Creek Baptist Church; and
Whereas, his family has owned the Hammett Farm which is adjacent to this new bridge since 1791, and his daughters still own and operate this farm today; and
Whereas, he is a descendant of the Hammett family who built the first bridge at approximately this location sometime after 1791, and the members of the General Assembly believe it would be a fitting tribute to this distinguished South Carolinian if this bridge were named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the new bridge on Hammett Bridge Road in Greenville County as the "Harold Hammett Memorial Bridge" and erect appropriate signs or markers along both highway approaches to this bridge that contain the words "Harold Hammett Memorial Bridge".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
