SIKESTON-A dedication ceremony for the Aaron McKinney Memorial Highway is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9, at 1 p.m. at the Scopus Methodist Church in Scopus, Mo.
Senator Jason Crowell sponsored the legislation, naming a section of Route B from the intersection of Route 34 to the intersection of Route UU in Bollinger County in honor of McKinney.
In addition to McKinney's family, Crowell, Marble Hill Mayor Rick Jones, Jonette Strothcamp with Mid America Transplant Services, and Reverend Carl Cureton of Fredericktown Calvary Temple are expected to participate in the ceremony.
McKinney, son of Dani and Matt Dunn of Marble Hill, was a Woodland High School student who lost his life along this segment of Route B in October 2004.
