TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE JUNCTION OF NORTH WILLISTON ROAD AND EAST POCKET ROAD IN FLORENCE COUNTY "REVEREND DR. WAYMON MUMFORD INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THESE WORDS.
Whereas, Reverend Dr. Waymon Mumford is a lifelong resident of Florence County, the son of sharecropper parents; and
Whereas, he is married to the former Senora Davis and together they are the proud parents of two sons and one daughter. They also have been blessed with nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; and
Whereas, Reverend Mumford is a 1967 graduate of Wilson High School, a 1980 graduate of Florence-Darlington Technical College, a 1983 graduate of the FBI National Academy, and earned a bachelor of science degree in business administration from Limestone College; and
Whereas, Reverend Mumford also is a graduate of the Interdenominational Theological Center and was awarded the honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Morris College; and
Whereas, he was called to the ministry in 1998 and serves as pastor of Central Baptist Church in Florence; and
Whereas, he was employed with the City of Florence for twenty-five years and retired in 1994 as chief of police after advancing through the ranks from patrolman; and
Whereas, since 1994 he has served as a member of the Florence County Council; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize Reverend Dr. Mumford's many accomplishments by naming an intersection in Florence 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 the department of Transportation name the intersection located at the junction of North Williston Road and East Pocket Road in Florence County "Reverend Dr. Waymon Mumford Intersection" 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.
