NATCHEZ — Adams County will memorialize one of its fallen sons with a roadway dedicated in his honor.
The Natchez Democrat reports the Adams County Board of Supervisors has adopted a resolution to designate Green Acres Road as the Christopher Shaw Memorial Byway.
Shaw, a Natchez native, was a U.S. Army sergeant first class when he was killed at 37 by an improvised explosive device on Jolo Island in the Philippines, where he was serving in support of Operation Enduring Freedom_Philippines. It was his second deployment.
Board of Supervisors President Darryl Grennell says Green Acres Road was chosen for the byway because that was where Shaw grew up.
