S. Printed 2/17/22--H.
Read the first time January 25, 2022.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 916) to request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the junction of Percival Road and Fairlamb Avenue in Richland County "Deputy Jerry Lee Hurd, Jr. Memorial Intersection", 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 THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERSECTION LOCATED AT THE JUNCTION OF PERCIVAL ROAD AND FAIRLAMB AVENUE IN RICHLAND COUNTY "DEPUTY JERRY LEE HURD, JR. MEMORIAL INTERSECTION" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, Richland County Deputy Jerry Lee Hurd, Jr., an employee of the Richland County Sheriff's Department, was injured in the line of duty on Memorial Day in 2002. He was working as a prisoner transport officer and was receiving an inmate from another deputy when he was struck by an oncoming car. As a result of this incident, he was paralyzed and, despite a number of surgeries, lost the use of both legs over time; and
Whereas, after the incident, Deputy Hurd returned to work as a member of the victims' assistance team. In 2017, he was hospitalized with complications from the incident. He died on November 9, 2018; and
Whereas, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott called Deputy Hurd's death a loss not only of a member of the Richland County Sheriff Department family, but a loss that should not have been. He stated that Deputy Hurd's death left a great void in the department; and
Whereas, Sheriff Lott praised Deputy Hurd as someone who never stopped wanting to be a deputy and who always wanted to help others; and
Whereas, Deputy Hurd left to cherish his memory his wife, Emma Barkley, as well as his three daughters: Kristina Cheshire, Jennifer Schermhorn, and Mary Ann Ingle; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to pay tribute to this son of South Carolina by naming an intersection in the State in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the intersection located at the junction of Percival Road and Fairlamb Avenue in Richland County "Deputy Jerry Lee Hurd, Jr. Memorial Intersection" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and presented to the family of Deputy Jerry Lee Hurd, Jr.
