Read the first time March 20, 2018.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 5126) to request the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 378 in Horry County from its intersection with United States Highway 501 to its intersection with El Bethel Road, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
ROBERT L. BROWN for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 378 IN HORRY COUNTY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 501 TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH EL BETHEL ROAD "LOIS EARGLE HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the Honorable M. Lois Eargle of Conway has served as Horry County Auditor since 1993; and
Whereas, active in politics and civic affairs, from 1976 to 1984, Mrs. Eargle represented House District 105 for four consecutive terms in the South Carolina House of Representatives. She later served as a member of the South Carolina Highway Commission; and
Whereas, she was appointed to the President's Commission on Mental Retardation by President Ronald Reagan, a post she held throughout President Reagan's second term; and
Whereas, she has served as an officer of many civic and charitable groups in the Pee Dee region, including the March of Dimes and the Horry County Shelter Home; and
Whereas, Mrs. Eargle has served on the Board of Visitors of Clemson University and the Medical University of South Carolina. She is a graduate of the University of South Carolina's Institute of Government and was bestowed the honorary doctor of Public Service degree from Coastal Carolina University; and
Whereas, she and her husband Jack, who have been married since 1952, are both civic-minded individuals who take pride in serving the public, taking care of their family, and working on all of the various projects God has entrusted them to do; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to recognize the many accomplishments of Mrs. Lois Eargle by naming a portion of United States Highway 378 in Horry County in her honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the portion of United States Highway 378 in Horry County from its intersection with United States Highway 501 to its intersection with El Bethel Road "Lois Eargle Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
