Council to consider name change for Parham Bridges ParkBy ANTHONY WARREN,
A popular Northside park could soon be named after a late Jackson Academy student.
Ward Three Councilman Kenneth Stokes has introduced an ordinance to rename Parham Bridges Park to Parham Bridges/Frances Fortner Park.
Fortner was killed in a car crash in 2018 after leaving Jackson Academy. She was set to graduate the following day.
Stokes has placed the item on the council’s September 17 agenda for consideration.
