Default Majel Barrett

As you know Majel Barrett (Majel Leigh Hudec) was born in Columbus, Ohio on February 23, 1932. In downtown Columbus there’s a hospital called Grant Medical Center. It is known as one of the finest trauma centers in the United States. Adjacent to the entrance of the Emergency Room there’s East Chapel Street. It intersects with South 6th Street that runs the length of the hospital.

I’ve driven past East Chapel Street numerous times and often thought of Nurse Chapel. You can see the street sign from the doors of the ER. I think it would be a good thing if the city fathers would dedicate that particular street near the hospital in honor of Majel.

What do you think about this idea?

Hmmm interesting thought!

Why not start a petition or proposal and get signatures of support? There are ways to do that online, and you'll surely have a large fanbase to tap.

I've sent an email to Majel's company to ascertain if such an effort would be acceptable. I'll follow up on this as necessary. At the very least there should be a resolution by Columbus City Council.

That is good that someone got back to you and did not brush you off.

Maybe this will lead to something good.
