Community Focus - Stewardship Banquet
- April 29, 2014
The Harlan County Conservation District’s (HCCD) annual soil stewardship and awards banquet was April 29. HCCD Chairman David Howard said in 1955 the National Association of Conservation Districts began a national program to encourage Americans to focus on stewardship.
Stewardship Week is officially celebrated from the last Sunday in April to the first Sunday in May.
David presented three J. Clark Metcalfe Memorial scholarships in the amount of $500 each to local students. Howard said that all three of these Harlan Students have demonstrated a positive influence in our community during their high school years and show great promise in the future.
Certificates and Checks were also awarded to area students for their participation in the Jim Claypool Poster and Essay Contests sponsored by the Kentucky Farm Bureau.
Approximately 130 attended the event held at Camp Blanton in Harlan County.
