Leg. considers Zacharias Hwy.

Legislation to name a portion of Highway 25 after the late former Mississippi State University President Donald Zacharias passed the state House of Representatives Tuesday. 

The House’s approval comes a little less than a year after Zacharias died March 3 at age 77. A few weeks after that, District 35 Rep. Joey Hood (R-Ackerman) drafted legislation to name the road after Zacharias, but it never passed.
