Ceremony set to honor former sheriff
PICKENS COUNTY—Pickens County Sheriff’s Office officials say L.E.C Road, located in front of the sheriff’s office, has been renamed in honor of long-time Pickens County Sheriff David Stone.
Stone served as sheriff in Pickens County for more than 40 years before retiring in 2012.
Sheriff Rick Clark said a ceremony to introduce “David Stone Rd.” will be held Aug. 23 at 9 a.m. at the Pickens County Law Enforcement Center.
“We wanted to honor Sheriff Stone in a way that would last for generations,” Clark said. “It is fitting that the road he came to work on every day will now be named after him and in honor of his service to Pickens County for over four decades.”
Clark said the ceremony is open to the public, and encouraged those in the community to attend.
