TO COMMEND ALBERT BELL, JR., REPRODUCTION DIRECTOR OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, FOR HIS LONG AND DEDICATED CAREER OF PUBLIC SERVICE TO THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA UPON THE OCCASION OF HIS UPCOMING RETIREMENT.
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly have learned with deep regret that Albert Bell, Jr., Reproduction Director of the South Carolina Legislative Council, will be retiring on December thirty-first of this year; and
Whereas, Albert Bell began his career of public service in 1953 at the South Carolina Department of Mental Health where he was employed as a psychiatric aide at Crafts-Farrow State Hospital in Columbia. Known for his kindness and generosity, he rendered, during those years, excellent care to the mentally ill and those unable to care for themselves; and
Whereas, after a period of time in the private sector, Mr. Bell joined the Division of General Services of the State Budget and Control Board in 1966 as Custodial Supervisor; and
Whereas, in 1977, he joined the staff of the South Carolina Legislative Council as a machine operator in the print shop where he worked tirelessly and conscientiously for the members of the General Assembly and where he quickly became known as the man to see when printing services were needed; and
Whereas, in 1994, he was promoted to the position of Reproduction Director, continuing his excellent record of providing prompt and efficient reproduction services for the General Assembly, House and Senate Committees and staff, the Legislative Council, the State Register, and the Budget Division of the Division of General Services, State Budget and Control Board; and
Whereas, Albert Bell, without question, is one of the nicest and most personable individuals ever to work in the State Capitol complex, and he will be missed by his many friends throughout state government; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly, by this resolution, would like to publicly recognize and thank Albert Bell, Jr., for his truly outstanding service to the State of South Carolina in many varied capacities upon the occasion of his upcoming retirement. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby commend Albert Bell, Jr., Reproduction Director of the South Carolina Legislative Council, for his long and dedicated career of public service to the State of South Carolina upon the occasion of his upcoming retirement.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Mr. Albert Bell, Jr.
