In a ceremony marked by the traditional lighting of candles, the Harlan County High School chapter of the National Honor Society inducted new members.
“The inductees tonight are a special group, recognized for their academic prowess and attention to community service, leadership, and character,” said Anna Carruba, sponsor of the chapter. “We are so very proud of all that these young men and women have accomplished. It will be our pleasure to watch as they grow and shape their world.
