Highway renamed for local fallen firefighter

It was a great honor to be part of the ceremony to recognize Firefighter Dana Schoolman and his family. Dana was killed in the line of duty on the way to a fire call 1988, and last week Senator Jason Barickman and I joined with Dana’s family and many local residents in designating the Firefighter Dana Schoolman Memorial Highway.

Our condolences and support go to his wife Anne, the Schoolman family, and the Ashkum volunteer Fire Department. The entire community is grateful to Dana and the Ashkum Volunteer Fire Department family for their commitment and dedication to the safety and well-being of our community!
