Road honors legacy of ‘Miss Julia’

Lauded by the ceremony’s speakers for her advocacy and financial support of the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, academics, theater and art, the late Julia Munroe Woodward was formally made the namesake for the Quincy Bypass on Monday afternoon.

An audience of approximately 100 gathered under tents on the Quincy Municipal Airport’s lawn at 4 p.m. It included members of Woodward’s family, people who as children had benefited from Woodward’s philanthropy and leaders of many Gadsden County organizations.
