A dedication ceremony has been scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday at the street's intersection with St. Francis Street. Davis, who was killed in 2010, was a lifelong resident of Brooksville. She was a teacher for 30 years and, after retirement, began a second career with the Hernando County Sheriff's Office.
