The dedication ceremony will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Southwest 72nd Avenue and 13th Street.

In addition to renaming the street Taylor Bishop Avenue, a bench and historical marker will also be placed on the site.

Bishop’s mother, Megan “Kiki” Bishop, spoke at the ceremony and wants to ensure her son’s legacy lives on forever.

“He was just a beautiful kid and now I know he’s a beautiful angel. He was so special, I’d tell people he’s an old soul, he’d tell me mommy you have to be patient,” Bishop said.

Family, friends and local leaders gathered to unveil Bishop’s Corner, a powerful moment for a special boy

“For a long time this was a place I didn’t want to be because of what happened. You will see me here all the time. I will come and read and pray and remember all the wonderful things about Taylor,” Bishop said.

Now as you drive past the corner of Southwest 72nd Avenue and 13th Street, be sure to look for Taylor’s name.
