S. Printed 5/8/19--H.
Read the first time May 7, 2019.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 799) to request that the Department of Transportation name two miles on Interstate-85 in Anderson County and two miles on Interstate-85 in Oconee County from the Anderson-Oconee County, 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 TWO MILES ON INTERSTATE-85 IN ANDERSON COUNTY AND TWO MILES ON INTERSTATE-85 IN OCONEE COUNTY FROM THE ANDERSON-OCONEE COUNTY LINE "CHRISTINA ADAMS HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly were deeply saddened by the tragic death of Christina "Chrissy" Theos Adams on Tuesday, December 27, 2016, at the age of forty-nine after a strong, hard-fought battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma; and
Whereas, a native of Charleston, Chrissy Adams grew up as a beloved member of the Greek community in Charleston. She was an alumna of Bishop England High School; Clemson University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Management and was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority; and the University of South Carolina School of Law; and
Whereas, Chrissy began her career in public service as an assistant prosecutor in Charleston. After moving to Seneca, she prosecuted for the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit until being recruited as deputy solicitor for Oconee County. In November 2004, she was elected solicitor of the Tenth Judicial Circuit, and she took office on January 12, 2005. In her role as solicitor, she served as president of the South Carolina Solicitors' Association and introduced the Courthouse Facility Dog program to South Carolina to assist victims of crime. Chrissy's determination and dedication were an inspiration to all who supported and worked with her during her successful three-term tenure; and
Whereas, an active leader in her community, Chrissy was involved with the Anderson County Alternative School Board, the Carolina First/TD Bank Advisory Board, the Tri-County Technical College Advisory Board, the Tri-County Technical College Criminal Justice Advisory Board, the South Carolina Trial Lawyers Association, the National District Attorneys Association, the South Carolina Bar, the Oconee County Bar, the Anderson County Bar, and the Seneca Golden Corner Rotary Club. She was also a staunch supporter of Collins Children's Home, Foothills Alliance, Safe Harbor, and the American Red Cross; and
Whereas, Chrissy was predeceased by her father, Gregory Theos; and
Whereas, she is dearly missed and forever loved by her family, including her devoted husband, Eddie; her two cherished sons, Gregory and James; her mother, Helen Theos; her brother, Nick Theos (Linda); her nieces, Helaina and Caroline; and a loving group of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends; and
Whereas, it would be only fitting and proper to pay tribute to this daughter of South Carolina by naming a portion of I-85 in her honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name two miles on Interstate-85 in Anderson County and two miles on Interstate-85 in Oconee County from the Anderson-Oconee County line "Christina Adams Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing the designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and the family of Christina "Chrissy" Theos Adams.
