TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR RUTH VANFAUSSIEN, EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT TO THE ORANGEBURG COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR, UPON THE OCCASION OF HER RETIREMENT, AND TO WISH HER CONTINUED SUCCESS AND FULFILLMENT IN ALL HER FUTURE ENDEAVORS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate have learned that Ruth VanFaussien soon will begin a much-deserved retirement after twenty-four years of distinguished service as executive assistant to the Orangeburg County administrator; and
Whereas, in preparation for her life's work, Ruth VanFaussien attended Marshall University upon graduation from Buffalo High School; and
Whereas, her career began at the International Nickel Company, where she worked until moving to North Myrtle Beach in 1968. While there, she was town clerk; and
Whereas, after a move to Cordova in 1970, Mrs. VanFaussien took up her duties at Orangeburg Consolidated School District 4 and served there until 1988. Since that time, she has served with distinction as executive assistant to the Orangeburg County administrator; and
Whereas, a woman of faith, Mrs. VanFaussien finds her spiritual strength as a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Cordova, where she has been the pianist for the past forty years and continues to be active on numerous committees; and
Whereas, because she believes in active participation in her community, she currently serves on the Orangeburg County Literacy Council and Orangeburg County Tourism Board; and
Whereas, married to Joe VanFaussien, she is the proud mother of two beautiful daughters, Stephanie and Stacey, who have given her the delight of five charming grandchildren; and
Whereas, the Senate, grateful for the consistent commitment and excellence Ruth VanFaussien has demonstrated in her service to 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:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, recognize and honor Ruth VanFaussien, executive assistant to the Orangeburg County administrator, upon the occasion of her retirement, and wish her continued success and fulfillment in all her future endeavors.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Ruth VanFaussien.
