From time to time the Mayor and Council for the City of Lewisburg see fit to dedicate certain streets and or roads to honor those outstanding citizens whose efforts and accomplishments have rebounded to great benefit and pride of all citizens of Lewisburg.


Dont'a Hightower certainly meets these accomplishments and truly epitomizes the idea example that faith, diligence, and hard work can assuredly lead to great things. Dont'a began his illustrious career as an outstanding football phenom as a player for Marshall County High School and went on to play for the University of Alabama achieving 2 National Championships.


Dont'a was a first round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and was selected by the New England Patriots. The City of Lewisburg feels such accomplishments should not go without recognition and that the citizens of Lewisburg and Marshall County will recognize and remember the honor and pride that Dont'a Hightower had brought to our community and they too may be inspired by his success.


The Dedication Ceremony will be at the corner of Church Street and 1st Avenue on the Lewisburg Square around 11:00 a.m. Following the dedication of Hightower Parkway, Dont’a will be presenting the Lewisburg Pee Wee Football Program with 90 sets of new shoulder pads and equipment for the youth program in Lewisburg.

In addition to the equipment, Hightower will be donating additional funds to the City of Lewisburg to help sponsor the July 4th fireworks show that will be enjoyed by the entire community after the July 4th Miss Marshall County Pageant.

Hightower is an alumnus of Marshall County High School and the Marshall County Tiger Football Team.

 
Red Cross Urges Blood And Platelet Donations To Make Up For Expected Shortfall Due To Fourth of July Holiday Travel

More than 40 percent of regular donors may be traveling and unavailable to give

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 29, 2015) — The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to make an appointment now to give blood or platelets and help prevent a summer shortage.

 

The call for donations is supported by a recent survey of Red Cross blood and platelet donors showing that more than 40 percent plan to travel the week before or after Independence Day, an indicator that many eligible donors may be unavailable to give. In addition, fewer blood drives are scheduled the week before and after Independence Day, because many hosting organizations postpone blood drives while people are on vacation.

 

Blood donors with all types, especially O negative, A negative and B negative, and platelet donors are urged to schedule an appointment. Those who come to donate from July 2-6 will receive a Red Cross embroidered baseball cap, while supplies last. To make an appointment and for more information, download the free Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
