With the unveiling of new street signs at the ceremony on Saturday, Park Avenue will officially become Jack Marshall Avenue.

Park Avenue is a one-block street located between West 5th and West 6th streets just east of Westminster Avenue at Westminster College.

Westminster College officials have been working with City of Fulton officials since last summer to make the dedication a reality. The Fulton City Council approved the name change.

Westminster College President George B. Forsythe will deliver dedication remarks on Saturday. The other speaker at the event will be Jack’s brother, David Marshall, a 1964 Westminster graduate.
