Read the first time April 28, 2016.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1229) to request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 321 in Richland County from its intersection with Friendly Woods Road, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
JIMMY C. BALES for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 321 IN RICHLAND COUNTY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH FRIENDLY WOODS ROAD TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH BLYTHEWOOD ROAD "PASTOR EDDIE W. DAVIS HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Pastor Eddie W. Davis is a native of Hopkins, the eleventh of thirteen children born to Deacon Jerry Davis and Mrs. Annis Canty Davis; and
Whereas, he earned his Bachelor of Theology degree from Morris College, is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, and served as a member of the South Carolina Air National Guard; and
Whereas, Pastor Davis is married to First Lady Monica Davis. They are the proud parents of six children and have eight grandchildren; and
Whereas, for the past thirty-three years, Pastor Davis has led Little Zion Baptist Church in the Blythewood Community of Richland County; and
Whereas, as only the fifth pastor in the church's one hundred eighty-four-year history, he has continued the legacy of the church's past leaders by reaching out to the community and providing Christian service to save souls and strengthen families through the power of prayer, Bible study, and teaching and preaching the uncompromised Word of God; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the many accomplishments of this man of God by having a portion of United States Highway 321 named in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That members of the General Assembly, by this resolution request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 321 in Richland County from its intersection with Friendly Woods Road to its intersection with Blythewood Road "Pastor Eddie W. Davis Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this highway that contain this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
