Seems to me the best course of action is to not name any county buildings after individuals. EX. Just use Bladen County EMS Building, and then have a wall dedicated to the people that deserve to be honored. Have the people from each community to select deserving nominees and then commissioners or a selected group, to go through the applicants without knowing their names, race, or any personal information, just select them by the credentials for their service to the county in their department. Things change over time and this gives you the ability to make adjustments if needed, and also honor others if and when that time comes.
