Dr. David Carnes was one of the founding members of Huntington County Honors. A local physician for nearly 40 years, Dr. Carnes was compassionate in his profession and in his life. The Huntington native was a man of faith who had a heart for service and a love for the Huntington community, its people and its history.

Dr. Carnes passed away in March of 2023. To honor his legacy and leadership, Huntington County Honors has created the Dr. John David Carnes Humanitarian Service Award.
