Dedication ceremonies will be held Saturday in Chatham to rename Route 4 through the village in honor of Corporal James “Chad” Young.
The Glenwood High School graduate was killed in 2010 during his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. He was posthumously promoted to the rank of corporal.
Illinois lawmakers unanimously approved a resolution authorizing the highway designation earlier this year. The ceremony will be held at 10:30 Saturday morning at the veterans’ memorial on the Chatham Village Square.
