TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAYS 76 AND 378 WITH LOWER RICHLAND BOULEVARD IN RICHLAND COUNTY "BETTY AND SAM MCGREGOR INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERSECTION THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "BETTY AND SAM MCGREGOR INTERSECTION BETTY - 2009 SOUTH CAROLINA AND NATIONAL MOTHER OF THE YEAR".
Whereas, Sam and Betty McGregor of Hopkins have been married for almost sixty years and are the proud parents of five outstanding children; and
Whereas, Sam served his country with honor as a member of the United States military in the early 1950's; and
Whereas, after Sam completed his military service, the McGregors moved to Hopkins and became successful dairy farmers. In recognition of his commitment to the land and preserving our nation's great agricultural legacy for future generations, in 1964 Sam was named National Young Farmer of the Year; and
Whereas, in 2009 Betty was named South Carolina Mother of the Year and 2009 National Mother of the Year, two of the greatest honors she has received during her lifetime; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper to forever recognize the accomplishments of the McGregors by naming an intersection in Richland County in their honor. 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 intersection of United States Highways 76 and 378 with Lower Richland Boulevard in Richland County "Betty and Sam McGregor Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection that contain the words "Betty and Sam McGregor Intersection Betty - 2009 South Carolina and National Mother of the Year".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
