West Virginia Names Highway in Memory of Ben

WV Governor Joe Manchin, First Lady Gayle Manchin, community leaders, St. Jude representatives, friends and family gathered for the road naming ceremony.

The 3.4 mile 4-lane roadway is new and was the last road Ben traveled.  It is an amazing highway - with breath taking views.  The "Big Ben Bowen Highway" is a wonderful  and fitting tribute.

Way to go Ben!
