ANDERSON CO., S.C. (WSPA) – SCDOT unveiled signs today honoring Jacob L. Hall who died after the Townville Elementary shooting.

This is located at the Intersection of I-85 and Highway 24 in Anderson County.

At a ceremony Wednesday at the Townville Fire Department as part of a BBQ fundraiser for the fire department, rescue squad and the elementary school, Jacob’s parents were given a replica of the sign and a framed copy of the resolution.

First responders also got hands-on state-of-the-art training.

Wearing a Batman ring given to him by the father of Jacob Hall, Dwayne Johnson still chokes up remembering the news that came across his screen that September day.

“He lost his son to evil and we are fighting evil back,” says Johnson.

Johnson’s property turned triage training ground made possible by his company LKQ, GHS, and other community donors.

Different wreckage scenes were set up to simulate different dangerous scenarios.

All first responders from Greer to Hart County, Georgia who stepped in to run calls while Townville healed were invited.
