Read the first time March 27, 2014.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4998) to request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of 24th Avenue between Calhoun and Dargan streets in the City of Dillon, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
LISTON D. BARFIELD for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF 24TH AVENUE BETWEEN CALHOUN AND DARGAN STREETS IN THE CITY OF DILLON "RUBY WOODS CARTER ROAD" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF ROADWAY THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "RUBY WOODS CARTER ROAD".
Whereas, Ruby Woods Carter is the youngest of ten children born to James and Mary Jane Woods in Allendale, South Carolina; and
Whereas, she attended the public schools of Allendale County, graduating second in her high school class. She received her undergraduate degree from Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia; and
Whereas, Mrs. Carter also has studied at several other institutions of higher learning, including Atlanta University in Atlanta, Georgia, Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, and South Carolina State College in Orangeburg, South Carolina. She earned a master's degree in counseling education from South Carolina State; and
Whereas, her career as an educator extended over a period of more than forty years - all of her career devoted to helping Dillon's youth to advance and become successful adults. Her first job after graduating from Spelman at age twenty was a fourth grade teacher; and
Whereas, Ruby Woods was not only a fourth grade teacher, she also was the girls' basketball coach, a counselor, and a mentor in the Dillon "Colored" school which later became the Gordon Schools. She served as a high school and junior high school guidance counselor for most of her career; and
Whereas, she married Dolphus Carter, Jr., while she was teaching in Dillon. Mr. and Mrs. Carter have three living children, Rene, Jane, and Stanley. Their son, Dolphus III, died a few years ago. In addition to her own children, Mrs. Catter has numerous adopted children, including Della, Sheila, and Sylvia. She also is the proud grandmother of seven grandchildren; and
Whereas, Ruby Woods Carter remains involved in and vital to a range of religious, civic, and educational activities. She has served on numerous state and national boards and committees; and
Whereas, a few years ago, she completed a six-year term as a member of the American Hospital Association Section for Long Term Care and Rehabilitation Committee, which afforded her the opportunity to travel throughout the United States for meetings and other activities; and
Whereas, a long-time member of St. Stephens United Methodist Church, she is still very active in numerous church ministries; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to forever recognize the outstanding achievements of Mrs. Ruby Woods Carter by having a portion of a roadway in the City of Dillon named in her 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 portion of 24th Avenue between Calhoun and Dargan streets in the City of Dillon "Ruby Woods Carter Road" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of roadway that contain the words "Ruby Woods Carter Road".
