TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME ST. MARK BOWMAN ROAD IN DORCHESTER COUNTY "CAPTAIN JEROME JONES ROAD" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS HIGHWAY CONTAINING THESE WORDS.

Whereas, Jerome Jones was born on March 27, 1949, in Bowman, the second child of seven children born to Frank and Bessie Robinson Jones; and

Whereas, he honorably served as a member of the United States Army from 1969 to 1971 and is a veteran of the Vietnam War; and

Whereas, Captain Jones received his Certificate of Completion in 1973 from the Manpower Development Center in Charleston; and

Whereas, he is trustee chairman of the Shady Grove United Methodist Church and a member of the Palmetto Law Enforcement Officers Association; and

Whereas, for more than three decades, he has been employed by the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office and currently serves as captain for Judicial Services; and

Whereas, Captain Jones has received numerous awards and commendations, including the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office Distinguished Service Award, the NAACP Community Service Image Award, and the Shady Grove Family Life Center Board of Directors ABCD Award; and

Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the outstanding contributions this son of South Carolina has made to his community, this State, and nation by having a road in Dorchester County named in his honor. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:

That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name St. Mark Bowman Road in Dorchester County "Captain Jerome Jones Road" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this highway containing these words.
