S. Printed 4/16/14--S. [SEC 4/17/14 3:41 PM]
Read the first time March 19, 2014.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4851) to request that the Department of Transportation name the intersection of Mall Drive and Lacross Road in Charleston County, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
LAWRENCE K. GROOMS for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION OF MALL DRIVE AND LACROSS ROAD IN CHARLESTON COUNTY "MICHAEL 'MICKEY' S. WHATLEY INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "MICHAEL 'MICKEY' S. WHATLEY INTERSECTION".
Whereas, the Honorable Michael "Mickey" Stewart Whatley was born on October 7, 1935, in Charleston County and died on August 16, 2011; and
Whereas, he was the proud father of four children; and
Whereas, Representative Whatley attended the Southern Police Institute, and was a 1978 graduate of the Baptist College of Charleston; and
Whereas, he compiled an exemplary record as a law enforcement officer, having served as Chief of Police for the City of North Charleston from 1992 through 1994, as a Lieutenant with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division from 1984 through 1992, as President of the South Carolina Chapter of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy from 1982 through 1983, and as a member of the International Association of Police Chiefs; and
Whereas, he was a member of Dorchester Lodge 369 A.F.M., Scottish Rite Omar Shrine Temple, the National Boy Scouts Council of America, and served on the Strom Thurmond Monument Commission; and
Whereas, from 1958 through 1960 he served his country with distinction as a member of the United States Army; and
Whereas, during his service as a member of the General Assembly, Representative Whatley championed the interests of his county and the State of South Carolina, and possessed great leadership abilities and a clear vision for all South Carolinians; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and appropriate to recognize his great accomplishments by naming a highway in Charleston County in his 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 Mall Drive and Lacross Road in Charleston County "Michael 'Mickey' S. Whatley Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this intersection that contain the words "Michael 'Mickey' S. Whatley Intersection".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
