Members of the Marlboro County Council praised and celebrated the leadership of chairman Dr. Carolyn Prince at their monthly meeting Tuesday.
Prince, who won the Bennettsville mayor's position during the November election, will have to resign from county council to accept her new office. Tuesday's meeting was her last on council before taking office with the city on January 2.
Vice-chairman Jason Steen read a resolution saluting and highlighting accomplishments of Prince's 19 years on county council.
Prince was presented a framed version of the resolution, as well as a plaque with her chairman's gavel.
During the segment of the meeting in which the individual councilmen had the floor, each thanked Prince and wished her success leading Bennettsville City Council.
"I thank the staff and fellow council members for their efforts and willingness to work together," said Prince.
