A piece of highway near Post has been dedicated to the memory of Trooper Jonathan McDonald, a law enforcement officer who died around seven years ago.

He joined DPS in 2008 and was stationed in Post at the time of his death.

The portion of the highway dedicated to him is south of Southland and stretches from Garza to Scurry County. He was survived by his parents, wife, one daughter and two brothers.
