Georgetown County Council will ask the General Assembly to rename an 8-mile section of Exodus Drive (S.C. Highway S-264) in honor of the late Johnny Morant. The council unanimously passed a Resolution to that effect on October 10, with members of the Morant family in attendance to support the effort.
Morant, who passed away in 2020, served on Georgetown County Council for 25 years before retiring in 2018. The last decade of his tenure was spent as Council Chairman. Through the years, he offered thoughtful leadership, which helped Georgetown County navigate periods of intense growth and rapid change.
Every resident of Georgetown County “has directly benefitted from the contributions of Johnny Morant,” the Resolution states. “He exemplified the strength held by pillars of any community and is a guidepost for those who followed.”
