Mayor Lauritson presented retired Coach Vernon and Waynesville High School with the signs that were on I 44 “Waynesville Tiger Football champions 2007.”
Signs in the interstate are only maintained by MODOT for tens years. If the sign deteriorates after that period, the signs are destroyed
Rather than see that happen, the Mayor decided to give the signs to retired Coach Vernon, coach of the 2007 champs.
Mayor Lauritson said “ He couldn't think of a better, more deserving person to give the signs to.”
The signs now have a new home south retired Coach Vernon and Waynesville High School.
