Hardin County government gave local American Red Cross Manager Sharon Thompson a loving sendoff into retirement Tuesday.
Judge-Executive Harry Berry presented Thompson with a proclamation naming Tuesday “Sharon Thompson Day” in Hardin County.
Thompson accepted the honor to a standing ovation, surrounded by several Red Cross volunteers, her family and her husband, Bobby.
Thompson started working with the American Red Cross in 1970, accumulating nearly 45 years of service. Her retirement, she said, is effective early next month.
