Spartanburg, South Carolina (WSPA)-The Upstate Community brings together. Honor the life of a crossing guard who was killed in a hit-and-run more than two years ago.
A community that says Emma Taylor is always smiling and waving because Emma Taylor kept the pedestrian crossing at Jesse Boyd Elementary School safe for everyone.
“She was giving, she loved, she loved her children, she loved her family,” said Taylor’s daughter Robin Robinson.
The day she was killed shook the community.
After her death, the city of Spartanberg made some changes to the deadly intersection in front of the school, moved the pedestrian crossing to a better location and added traffic lights.
“I know my parents feel safer,” Robinson said.
Another addition was made on Friday. This time her name is written.
A road sign that changes the name of the road after she is revealed.
Taylor’s son said she could feel her smiling.
“She made this a better place, she sacrificed her life to make it a better place,” Gilchrist said.
Robinson’s addition of signs is not just a road sign, but a sign of hope.
“As I said before, I don’t get down here much now, but now I have a reason to get down here, just sit, see, talk, think, pray, do whatever. It will be a comfortable place for you, “said Robinson.
Kenneth Sullivan was arrested about a month after the incident, left the scene for a felony, and was charged with driving while parked and driving an uninsured vehicle.
