Whereas, Mr. Maxie Rowell has resided in the Town of Little Rock with his wife, Mrs. Ethel Rowell, for the past fifty years. They are the proud parents of five children; and

Whereas, he was employed by the South Carolina Department of Transportation for thirty-three years, worked for the City of Dillon Police Department for fifteen years, and worked twelve years for the Dillon County Detention Center; and
Whereas, Mr. Rowell has had a great positive impact on his community. He has been a mentor to many young boys who grew up in the Little Rock community and coached the first and only African-American little league team in Little Rock; and
Whereas, Mr. Rowell continues to serve the Dillon County area with his Sunday Morning Gospel Radio Program on WDSC 800 AM, and spends much of his time gardening and delivering wood to families throughout Dillon County; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper for the members of the General Assembly to name a portion of Bunker Hill Road in the Town of Little Rock in his honor as a token of appreciation for his legacy of good works. 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 portion of Bunker Hill Road in the Town of Little Rock from its intersection with West Main Street to its intersection with Harllees Bridge Road "Maxie Rowell Road" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this road that contain the words "Maxie Rowell Road".
