The inaugural recognition ceremony for Huntington County Honors was held Oct. 22 in the Huntington County Courthouse.
A total of 25 members of the Class of 2016 were honored by the group.
Huntington County Honors was created to shine a light on those individuals and their works in an effort to educate, inspire and instill pride in the community. The organization recognizes both the well-known and those who are more obscure, but all of them have been significant in their contributions to the reputation of the county.
