Bells Ferry Park is now named Marine Lance Cpl. Squire "Skip" Wells Park.

Cobb County officials made that change official yesterday, according to the foundation named after Wells.

Wells, a Sprayberry High School graduate, was among the five victims in the 2015 attack at a Navy Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

When current Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price was still in Congress, he backed legislation that called for a Marietta post office to be re-named in honor of Wells.
