S. Printed 5/5/21--H.
Read the first time April 6, 2021.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 668) to request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of Nichols Highway from its intersection with Sarvis Road to its intersection with Truluck Johnson Road, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
DENNIS C. MOSS for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF NICHOLS HIGHWAY FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH SARVIS ROAD TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH TRULUCK JOHNSON ROAD IN HORRY COUNTY "BRENDA COOK MEMORIAL HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Brenda Shelley Cook on Saturday, January 18, 2014, at the age of forty-eight; and
Whereas, on the night of her death, Brenda stopped on Nichols Highway to render aid to a drunk driver who had run into a ditch. While she was helping, another drunk driver sped through the scene and hit her; and
Whereas, a native of Columbia, Brenda was born on January 8, 1966, the daughter of Edna Earl Huggins Shelley and the late Tilliman Levoy Shelley; and
Whereas, a devout Christian, she attended Faith Baptist Church; and
Whereas, Brenda was predeceased by her brother, Larry Shelley; and
Whereas, she is survived by her mother; her husband, Jesse Leroy Cook; two daughters, Victoria Graham (Chuck) and Kathy Cooper (Derrick); three sons, Benjamin Cook, Patrick Cook, and Malcolm Cook (Denise); seven grandchildren, Charlie Walker Graham, Michael Graham, Jacob Graham, Hunter Cook, Jasmine Cooper, Dalton Cooper, and Izak Cook; six step-grandchildren, Bridget, Jordan, Tyler, Connor, Courtney, and Dylan; and two sisters, Tammy Reason and Kim Andryshak. She will be greatly missed; and
Whereas, it would be only fitting and proper to pay tribute to this daughter of South Carolina by naming this portion of road in the State in her memory. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name the portion of Nichols Highway from its intersection with Sarvis Road to its intersection with Truluck Johnson Road in Horry County "Brenda Cook Memorial Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing the designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the family of Brenda Shelley Cook and forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
