The Winston-Salem City Council will hold a dedication ceremony for the Citizen's Memorial Wall in the New Evergreen Cemetery, 2124 New Walkertown Road, at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 18.
The Citizen’s Memorial Wall honors the memories of those citizens whose lives left a lasting impact on our community. Memorial plaques on the wall list each person’s name, their role in the community, and their vital dates.
To date, eight citizens have been honored on the wall, including master brick maker George Black; Clark Brown Sr., the founder of the Clark Brown Funeral Home; Clark Campbell, a longtime bus driver and the namesake of the Clark Campbell Transportation Center; Drane McCall, a longtime advocate for Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful and the organizer of Community Roots Day; and William K. Hill, a former human resources director for the city of Winston-Salem.
Citizens can nominate someone by completing an application available at the New Evergreen Cemetery office and online. The $300 fee covers all costs, including purchase of the bronze plaque, engraving, and mounting. Applications are reviewed and approved by the public works committee of the city council.
