CLARKSVILLE, TN (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – Kraft Street was dedicated as Pastor Jerry G. Jerkins Memorial Highway in honor of the late pastor and community leader on Wednesday.
State Rep. Jason Hodges, who helped commission the memorial street name, said, “He was a vital part of our community, and the sign is a way to honor and commemorate what he has done for our community.”
Speakers at the unveiling ceremony included Mayor Joe Pitts, Pastor William Luffman and Pastor George T. Brooks Sr.
The Jerkins family was given a replica sign, and the official street sign will be installed by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
Brooks said Rev. Jerkins “always wanted to be a part of everything that took place, and now he can be with this street named in his honor.”
