Quincy looks to honor legendary QU coach

Quincy University

A name change could be coming to a Quincy street.

A proposal has been put forth to change the name of Seminary Road from 12th to 18th Street to Jack Mackenzie Drive.

Jack Mackenzie coached the Quincy University soccer team for forty three years winning nine national titles under his watch.

The road name would be honorary and would not change mailing addresses.

The proposal has been tabled for one week to let residents have an ability to voice their opinion.

Quincy Alderman Dan Brink says this is something the community wants.

"This is more of an opportunity to give thanks to coach Jack Mackenzie for all his years of service to Quincy, not only Quincy University, but to Quincy itself," the alderman said.

Alderman Brink says he has gotten positive feedback from residents in the community and expects the road name to be named next week.
