    2011 Harrison County
    4-H Style Revue
    The 2011 Harrison County 4-H Style Revue will be held Saturday, April 30 at 2 p.m. at the Harrison County High School. The 4-H Style Revue is the end result of a tremendous amount of work and time by the leaders and 4-H’ers of the 4-H Crocheting, Knitting and Sewing projects.

  • Enabling students for the future

    By Mark Sims, Guest columnist
    Since early in humankind’s development, we have defined ourselves through our current technology. We began in the Stone Age, progressed through the Metal Ages, flourished in the Industrial Age, and reached for the stars in the Space Age.
