TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF SOUTH CAROLINA HIGHWAY 311 IN BERKELEY COUNTY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 176 TO MUDVILLE ROAD "CALDWELL PINCKNEY, SR. MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY THAT CONTAIN THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Mr. Caldwell Pinckney, Sr., was born in Cross on July 30, 1927, and died on February 20, 2006, the son of the late Earnest Pinckney and Lillie Pinckney Scott; and
Whereas, while he dropped out of school in the third grade to take care of his mother and siblings, he became an advocate for education and vowed to ensure that his siblings would receive a formal education; and
Whereas, Mr. Pinckney was a successful businessman who operated a logging company, dump truck business, a chartered bus company, the founder and co-owner of Eutawville Community Funeral Home, Inc., and worked as a warehouse operator for Holnam, Inc.; and
Whereas, he was a faithful member of Ebenezer-Zion AME Church, where he served as chairman of the trustee board, and church treasurer; and
Whereas, he was the last surviving chartered member of the Eutawville Masonic Lodge #402 in Eutawville, a member of the Robert Shaw Wilkerson Consistory #220, a member of Jeddah Temple 160 in Orangeburg, and a member of the Eutawville Chapter of the NAACP; and
Whereas, he was married to Rosa Lee Green, and together they were the proud parents of eleven children and a host of grand, great-grand, and great-great-grandchildren; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the many contributions that this son of South Carolina made to the growth of the spiritual, social, and economic well-being of his community by naming a portion of highway in Berkeley 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 portion of South Carolina Highway 311 in Berkeley County from its intersection with United States Highway 176 to Mudville Road "Caldwell Pinckney, Sr. 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.
