Highway Dedicated Down in Southwest Georgia

Down in Southwest Georgia, a portion of State Route 45 in Early County from the Miller County line to the Calhoun County line was dedicated as the Joe Bryan Highway during a special ceremony back on Dec. 22 in the Joe Bryan Auditorium at Southwest Georgia Academy.

The dedication was authorized by a House Resolution introduced by Representative Gerald Greene.

The resolution cited Bryan’s distinguished public service to his community, the Boy Scouts, Southwest Georgia Academy and more than 50 years of service to the peanut industry.

He was similarly honored by a Senate Resolution. They both included a remembrance citation from St. James C.M.E. Church which reads, “Joe Bryan never refused to help any worthy cause” and the citation from Bethel Methodist Church, “Joe Bryan was a Godly man who vigorously pursued a Godly path toward a Godly cause — helping his fellow man.”

Kudos to Gerald Greene (D-Cuthbert) honoring this man.
Also speaking at the service was former State Rep Johnny Floyd, a former democrat, turned republican from Cordele & current member of the GDOT & State Senator George Hooks (D-Americus).
