Whereas, the Honorable Delores Franklin Williams was the first female appointed magistrate from the Nesmith community in Williamsburg County in 2000; and
Whereas, she was the first female and African American municipal judge to serve the Town of Hemingway, a position she held for seventeen years; and
Whereas, Judge Williams presently serves as the chief magistrate for Williamsburg County; and
Whereas, her honors and awards include Williamsburg County District Teacher of the Year, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Citizen of the Year, recipient of the Belk Considerable Achievement Award in SHE Magazine, and induction into the Williamsburg County Public School Foundation Hall of Fame; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the many accomplishments of Judge Delores Franklin Williams by having a portion of highway in Williamsburg County named in her honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, request the Department of Transportation name the portion of Nesmith Road in Williamsburg County from the Nesmith Bridge to Turkey Creek Road "Judge Delores Franklin Williams Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway containing these words.
