SOUTH WILLIAMSON, KY — The organizational meeting for the Tribute to Dawson Isom event planned for January will be held at 5 p.m., Thursday, December 17, at the Steak House in South Williamson.
Organizers plan to set a specific date for the tribute, as well as planning where it will be held and the format to be followed. The event will honor the life of 18-year-old Dawson Isom, who remains comatose in a Kentucky nursing facility. He was injured in late May in downtown Williamson.
The tribute is set to “honor Dawson’s life and accomplishments not to place blame,” said one event organizer. The tentative date that will be suggested for the tribute will be Saturday, January 16.
In addition, an update on legal developments in the Isom case will be featured Friday morning, December 18, on the Tom Roten Show on WVHU-800AM in Huntington. The update is expected to be followed with more information Friday afternoon. The Isom portion of the Tom Roten show will begin at 8:45 a.m.
