Three distinguished Jennings County High School alumni have been selected for membership in the JCHS Alumni Hall of Fame. Another individual has been named as an honorary member of the group.

Albert Jackson, a retired banking executive and a graduate of North Vernon High School, has been selected as the honorary inductee this year. He was nominated by Dr. Terry Sargent who said Jackson "has served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps and at one time served as a police officer for the North Vernon Police Depart­ment."

Sargent also noted that the example Jackson has set for "every citizen is primarily through his outstanding efforts in community service. Whenever asked to serve he has served. This includes 50 years of leadership in the Chamber of Commerce, St. Vincent Jennings Hospital Board and the Jennings County Economic Develop­ment Commission."

Courthouse lawn is Ghost Walk 'stage'
Courthouse lawn is Ghost Walk 'stage'
In the shadow of the Jennings County Courthouse, young thespians act out "The River Boy," one of the nine skits presented during the Jennings County Historical Society's Ghost Walk one-and-a-half weeks ago. The Jennings County High School Thespian Troupe and the Jennings County Company, both made up of JCHS students, directed and performed the skits. From left are Brad Emry, Luis Sanchez, Kaley Ernstes, Storm Miller and Kayla Gross. The Ghost Walk skits were presented not only on the courthouse lawn but also at the Commons and Adams Well, an annual tradition that is part of Hector's Haunted Evening in Vernon.-Staff Photo by Bryce Mayer
