Whereas, The Honorable W. Odell Venters was born March 29, 1917, in Johnsonville, South Carolina, to Willie and Lizzie (Abrams) Venters; and
Whereas, Odell Venters was educated in the public schools of Florence County; and
Whereas, July 4, 1970, he married Dorothy G. Eaddy of Johnsonville; and
Whereas, Mr. Venters was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives in 1961 and served through 1968; and
Whereas, while during that time he served with distinction in the House of Representatives on the Labor, Commerce and Industry Committee and the Medical, Military, Public and Municipal Affairs Committee; and
Whereas, he was again elected to the House of Representatives in 1971 and served through 1977; and
Whereas, during this period of service to the House of Representatives he was an active member of the Ways and Means Committee; and
Whereas, Odell Venters served his native town of Johnsonville with distinction on the town council from 1950 through 1955 and was elected mayor in 1955 and served through 1960; and
Whereas, Representative Odell Venters was a progressive and highly effective political leader of Florence County on the municipal, county, and statewide levels; and
Whereas, he helped recruit new industry into the area; and
Whereas, his wisdom and determined manner saw to it that his area of the State has benefited from the offices to which the citizens had elected him; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that that portion of South Carolina Highway 41-51 located in Florence County be named the "W. Odell Venters Highway" in honor of this distinguished South Carolinian. Now, therefore,
