With a large collection of Black Bear items, such as T-shirts, sweats and shorts, and school supplies like binders and pencils, the Harlan County High School Bookstore has been transformed this school year.
The HCHS Bookstore officially opened on the first day of the 2015-2016 school year, under the direction of new teacher Holly Alred.
This is the first year the bookstore has been opened to the students during school hours since the 2012-2013 school year.
Alred says that she plans to stock the bookstore with a variety of spirit items and clothing (HCHS short and long sleeves, pullovers, warm up pants, hand warmers, etc.).
Alred says she is “extremely excited about the way that the students, community and the stakeholders have taken an interest in our Harlan County High School bookstore…”
She plans to make the school bookstore a “one stop shop” for everyone who visits. Alred also stated that the bookstore has sales daily and she wants all students to look around and shop at the store.
Senior Jessica Grubbs said she feels “the bookstore is a great advantage for the students at HCHS” and that “Mrs. Alred has improved the store tremendously in many ways.”
