TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE BRIDGE ALONG WATEREE ROAD IN FAIRFIELD COUNTY WHERE IT CROSSES THE WATEREE CREEK "JERRY NEALY BRIDGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THESE WORDS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are pleased to recognize Jerry Nealy for his significant contributions to the Lake Wateree community; and
Whereas, an active leader in his community for many years, Jerry Nealy has served for some time as Chairman of the Lake Wateree Homeowner's Association, which is now known as the Lake Wateree Association. For thirty years, the association has been an advocate for the protection of Lake Wateree, both as a source of drinking water for Fairfield and Kershaw Counties and as a valuable recreational and economic resource. It is also a popular residence area for locals, and the Lake Wateree Association has a membership of over one thousand households around the lake; and
Whereas, Jerry has also been a long-time part of the Dutchman Creek Volunteer Fire Company, having recently served as chief; and
Whereas, a devout Christian, Jerry is very involved with his church, the Lake Wateree Baptist Church; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly deeply value and appreciate Jerry's dedication and commitment to serving his community and wish him great strength and healing in his battle with brain cancer; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to this son of South Carolina by naming a bridge near Lake Wateree in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the bridge along Wateree Road in Fairfield County that crosses the Wateree Creek "Jerry Nealy Bridge" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing these words.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and Jerry Nealy.
