Road Dedication Set to Honor Local Fallen Soldier on November 2 in Avella

AVELLA – A portion of Route 50 in Avella will be dedicated in honor of Lt. Col. Juanita Warman during a special ceremony at the Avella Volunteer Fire Department on November 2 at 11 a.m., according to Senator Camera Bartolotta (R-46).

Lt. Col. Warman was one of 13 people killed in the domestic terrorist shooting at Fort Hood in 2009. The event coincides with the 10th anniversary of the shooting.

Bartolotta sponsored a bill to rename the road to honor the life and legacy of one of the region’s heroes and recognize her amazing courage in the face of imminent danger.
