    I had the opportunity recently to visit with a dear childhood friend. We talked about many of our favorite memories and then she said, “So, tell me how things are going with Hardin County Schools.”

    My response was, “Wow. Where do I begin?”

    I honestly can say that in all of my 30-plus years as an employee of Hardin County Schools, I do not recall this level of energy and excitement. The number of awards is growing and the opportunities for our students increase with each passing day.
