Turner was a 2008 Springboro graduate who had just celebrated his 30th birthday a few days before the shooting. He was out with friends when he was killed.
"I do not want Logan forgotten about," Day told News Center 7's Katy Andersen on Monday. "He grew up with my children and he was like my third son."
She and her class brainstormed. They, with the help of Turner's mother, came up the idea to name the park because of Turner's love of dogs.
The class typed the letters and submitted them to city council. Council voted in favor of the idea Feb. 6.
Not only will there be signage at the park, the school kids are also creating artwork and writing even more about Turner.
The plan is to publish a book.
"I think this is a good way for all these children in Springboro to remember him also," Day said.
It's a lesson that no doubt will be indelible.
