Read the first time May 27, 2014.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 5312) to request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 178 in Orangeburg County from the Bowman Nature Park, 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 UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 178 IN ORANGEBURG COUNTY FROM THE BOWMAN NATURE PARK TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH INTERSTATE HIGHWAY 95 "ARTHUR R. GLOVER MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Mr. Arthur R. Glover was the first African American elected official in the Town of Bowman; and
Whereas, he served as a member of the school board of trustees in Orangeburg County for more than twenty-three years; and
Whereas, for nearly thirty years he worked to train and find employment opportunities for individuals in Orangeburg, Calhoun, Allendale, and Bamberg counties; and
Whereas, Mr. Glover was loved, respected, and held in high esteem by the people in his community and the surrounding counties; and
Whereas, everyone regarded him as a loving family man, distinguished and devoted leader, tireless worker, great friend, and an overall remarkable person; and
Whereas, April 20, 2014, marked the tenth anniversary of his death; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to commemorate his life by having a portion of United States Highway 178 in Orangeburg County named 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 portion of United States Highway 178 in Orangeburg County from the Bowman Nature Park to its intersection with Interstate Highway 95 "Arthur R. Glover Memorial Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway that contain this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
