A segment of Fair Road is now McDougald Memorial Parkway, honoring a mayor who brought Statesboro its sewer system and donated land for the founding of a church and a university, as well as his descendants, some prominent in electronic and print media. The new designation, from where Fair Road begins at South Main Street down to Veterans Memorial Parkway, is honorary and does not affect addresses. About 75 people met Saturday at Second St. John Missionary Baptist Church for an indoor program followed by the unveiling of the signs.
