Read the first time February 5, 2002.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4346) to request the Department of Transportation to rename S-39-320 in Pickens County, which is designated as "Perimeter Road", "Silas N. Pearman Boulevard", to recognize the accomplishments of the late Mr. Silas N. Pearman, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
GREG RYBERG for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO RENAME S-39-320 IN PICKENS COUNTY, WHICH IS DESIGNATED AS "PERIMETER ROAD", "SILAS N. PEARMAN BOULEVARD", TO RECOGNIZE THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE LATE MR. SILAS N. PEARMAN, FORMER CHIEF HIGHWAY COMMISSIONER FOR THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND DISTINGUISHED GRADUATE OF CLEMSON UNIVERSITY.
Whereas, Mr. Silas N. Pearman was born in Anderson County on April 5, 1904, and died on November 3, 1996; and
Whereas, upon receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering in 1924 from Clemson University, he began his employment career with the South Carolina Department of Highways and Public Transportation as an instrumentman; and
Whereas, Mr. Pearman advanced through the employment ranks with the department and was elevated to the position of Chief Highway Commissioner in 1961, a position he held until his retirement in 1976; and
Whereas, throughout his more than fifty-year career with the department, Mr. Pearman dedicated his life to developing and improving South Carolina's excellent network of roads and highways; and
Whereas, to memorialize the achievements of this great son of South Carolina and distinguished Clemson University graduate, it is fitting and proper for S-39-320 in Pickens County which is designated as "Perimeter Road" to be renamed "Silas N. Pearman Boulevard". Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly hereby request that the Department of Transportation rename S-39-320 in Pickens County, which is designated as "Perimeter Road", "Silas N. Pearman Boulevard".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
