Whereas, the South Carolina Senate has learned that Terecia Webb Wilson of Newberry County, training, safety and security program manager for the Office of Public Transit in the Division of Intermodal and Freight Programs for the South Carolina Department of Transportation, soon will begin a well-deserved retirement after many years of dedicated service to the people of the Palmetto State; and
Whereas, in pursuit of higher education, Mrs. Wilson earned her bachelor's degree at Wake Forest University in 1978, graduating magna cum laude and later attending the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for graduate study. Since that time, she has participated in numerous training programs and seminars in her field, first as student and later as instructor; and
Whereas, in the early days of her career, she served as coordinator and grants writer for Rooftop of Virginia Community Action Agency, next working her way up through several leadership posts with various agencies, including the Columbia Urban League, City of Columbia DUI Alternative Sentencing Program, Governor's Office of Highway Safety Programs, and South Carolina Department of Public Safety Office of Safety and Grants; and

She has provided leadership for numerous statewide programs and activities, as well as the development and implementation of sound policies that have contributed toward significant reductions in both employee injuries and traffic injuries and fatalities; and

Among her many honors are appointment as a senior fellow in the Automotive Safety Research Institute, International Center for Automotive Research, Clemson University (2011); the National Roadway Safety Award for the "Let 'em Work, Let 'em Live" High Visibility Enforcement Campaign for Work Zone Safety (2007, project director); and South Carolina Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association Traffic Safety Administrator of the Year Award (2005); and

Whereas, to recognize Mrs. Wilson's decades of distinguished service, her friends and colleagues will gather to honor her at a retirement celebration on May 15, 2012; and
Whereas, the Senate, grateful for the legacy of consistent commitment and excellence Terecia Wilson has bestowed on the people of South Carolina, takes great pleasure in wishing her well as she enters retirement and trusts she will find much enjoyment in the more leisurely pace of the days ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
