Reserve Honors Sam Way

Mountain Mail Reports

“What a wonderful gesture to recognize a special person,” stated New Mexico Department of Transportation District 6 Commissioner Jackson Gibson. He and fellow state Commissioners were in Reserve on May 19 for their quarterly meeting. Gibson, overseeing responsibility for Catron County, was referring to the special honor given to Sam Way.
Richard Torres, with the approval of Lisa Way, had organized a committee to find ways to honor Sam Way. Through the efforts of Lori Harvell, Bette Wheatley, Lisa Way and Torres, the Sam Way Memorial Fellowship was formed.
Within days, close to 40 residents signed on expressing interest. The committee selected the New Mexico Adopt-A-Highway Program as a way of honoring Sam Way. Paperwork was completed, submitted, and approved in time for a special recognition ceremony at the New Mexico D.O.T. meeting in Reserve. A one mile section of State Highway 435 has been assigned for Sam Way. A date for an opening ceremony will be announced.
