Street renamed to honor Willie Jerue

Tyler County Booster

Woodville Mayor Ben Bythewood last week proclaimed October 27 as “A day of celebration in the life of Professor Willie D. Jerue” in the City of Woodville. A crowd gathered for the reading of the Proclamation and to hear other speakers praise Professor Jerue. To further honor him, Woodville City Council renamed Sweetgum Street to W.D. Jerue Circle. Jerue was an educator for 35 years as teacher, mentor and principal. He was also instrumental in organizing the local chapter of the NAACP in 1979 and served as President from 1981 until 1985.
