A stretch of Highway 57 in Long County near the Long County High School has been named in honor of late Long County Deputy Sheldon Whiteman.

A road sign bearing Whitman’s name was unveiled Thursday morning in the Maryann Odum Annex building in Ludowici.

The signs are already visible on Highway 57.

Whiteman was killed in an accident in January 2020 while assisting Ludowici police pursuing a suspect.
