Rename State Highway 27 to Sam Strahan Memorial Highway

This petition had 7,758 supporters

Sometimes to become a hero, one must give the ultimate sacrifice.

On Wednesday, September 13th, shortly after 10am, Freeman High School sophomore Sam Strahan made that sacrifice, stepping in as a fellow student took fire on his school.

The shooter took away a son, a brother and a friend. But he can’t take away the memory of this amazing young man whose heroic act likely saved the lives of many on that fateful day.

It’s something that would shake any community to its core, but in one as small and close-knit as Freeman it truly impacts everyone. This is why we would like to join not only Freeman, but the surrounding communities, as we create something that will remind us of Sam Strahan and his bravery for years to come.

Please join us in petitioning to commemorate Sam’s memory by renaming a portion of State Highway 27 to Sam Strahan Memorial Highway.
