District 4 state Sen. Billy O’Dell recently was honored by the American Legion Department of South Carolina as an Outstanding Legislator of the Year for 2014.
The American Legion presents two such awards each year — one for a member of the South Carolina Senate and one for a member of the House of Representatives. This year’s recipient in the House was Rep. William Hixon.


O’Dell and Hixon were lauded for their work on veterans issues, such as the inclusion of veteran status on South Carolina drivers licenses, as well as their service to the state and nation.
