Ceremony Marks Unveiling of ‘John H. Campbell, Sr. Way’

Councilman Levon Manzie held an event today to honor John H. Campbell Sr., a longtime District 2 resident and stalwart of his community. The ceremony marked the renaming of Hogan Street to ‘John H. Campbell Sr. Way.’

“As you can see by all these faces in the crowd, Mr. Campbell is revered by his family, neighbors, and the broader community he has served for so long,” said Councilman Manzie. “It’s wonderful the City can honor him in this way.”

John H. Campbell Sr. is a veteran of World War II, worked as a teacher in the Mobile County Public School System for many years and has lived on the newly named ‘John H. Campbell Sr. Way’ for 92 years. He is also a longtime member of the Bethel AME Church.

The Council voted unanimously in favor of Councilman Manzie’s proposal to rename the street in honor of him.
