State Representative Ryan Smith (R-Bidwell) today announced that a dedication ceremony honoring Lt. Stephen Byus will be held on October 8th at 2:00 p.m. at the Wellston City Building, 203 East Broadway Street, Wellston, OH 45692.


Senate Bill 182, which was enacted earlier this year, names State Route 93 from the boundaries of the City of Wellston to the Village of Coalton as the “Lieutenant Stephen Byus Memorial Highway.” Lt. Byus, who grew up in Wellston, died on September 16, 2014 after a suicide bomber detonated near him in Kabul, Afghanistan. He was 39.


“This event will be a celebration of the life and sacrifice that Lt. Byus made for his community and country,” said Smith. “All are welcomed to attend the event.”


Several individuals, including Representative Smith, will provide remarks honoring Lt. Byus. Refreshments will also be available.
