Highway Dedication to Honor Three Statesmen

Posted: Updated:

CARTER COUNTY,OK--A big dedication is happening tomorrow in Ardmore to remember three important men who served Carter County.

Governor Henry signed a bill this year to dedicate county line road that leads from Interstate 35 to Lake Murray in remembrance of former Carter County District Attorney Mitch Sperry, Carter County Sheriff Harvey Burkhardt and Former State Representative Terry Hyman.

All three men died unexpectedly while in office.

Current State Representative Sam Buck says it was a small gesture for the men who did so much.

"I believe these three individuals left a mark for southern Oklahoma that we can never repay," said Buck.

The official dedication will be at two p.m. tomorrow afternoon just east of the four way stop on county line road.
