On December 12, several Hart County students got the chance of a lifetime when they were able to march in Governor Andy Beshear’s Inauguration Day Parade.
Among those marching in the parade were students representing 4-H, Future Farmers of America (FFA), and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA).
FFA sponsor Ashley Thomas said that her students loved the opportunity to represent Hart County, their local chapter, and the Kentucky FFA Association.
“It is important that students have opportunities to learn about our history as well as participate in historical events,” Thomas shared. “This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for our Chapter, and we are grateful to all those individuals who made it happen.”
4-H students Braydon Thompson, Sophia Darr, Emma Sanders, and Anna Sims also participated in the parade.
“It was a wonderful opportunity to get to hands-on experience Kentucky’s history in the making with fellow peers and team members,” said Emma Sanders.
“It was an honor to represent Hart County 4-H in the historical parade,” added Anna Sims.
The parade was one of the many activities held in Frankfort to celebrate the 62nd inauguration of the Governor of Kentucky as Andy Beshear will begin his second term as leader in the state’s highest office.
