JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson's Metro Parkway was renamed Friday for a pioneering doctor.

A dedication celebration and lunch marked the occasion at Jackson State's College of Business to honor Dr. Robert Smith, Sr. from Terry.

The parkway now bears his name. It pays tribute to his hard work as a medical pioneer and his courage risking his life as a Civil Rights activist.

However, Dr. Smith considers himself a family physician above all else and wants to inspire young adults everywhere that anything is possible.
