Lonsdale Elementary to host Zaevion Dobson Day

Posted: Updated:

Knox County will remember the life and sacrifice of a 15-year-old boy who died shielding his friends from gunfire.

Tuesday is Zaevion Dobson Day.

Knox County leaders made the declaration last year. No. 24 was Dobson’s football jersey number when he played at Fulton High School.

Lonsdale Elementary School will host a number of events in Dobson’s honor on Tuesday.

Zenobia Dobson, Zaevion’s mother, is set to speak at the event Tuesday. University of Tennessee football players Todd Kelly Jr. and LaTroy Lewis will also speak.

The school will present a check to the Zaevion Dobson Memorial Foundation.

The program starts around 1 p.m. Tuesday.

    Good Tuesday.  We will be hot and humid again today with the high reaching 93 degrees.  The heat index will top out in the upper 90s.  While we will see clouds building through the day, the chance for rain is very small, less than 20%. Wednesday marks a big change in our weather.  We will see a cold front moving through which will bring scattered showers to the area late Wednesday morning into early afternoon.
