High School Hero
It's "Cody Hardin Day" in Boone County!
Conner High School Junior Cody Hardin was honored today by State Representatives Ed Massey and Sal Santoro and the Boone County Sheriff's department for his bravery and heroism involving a fellow student. The first week of school Cody stopped an alleged attempted kidnapping of a fellow student on the Conner campus.
Today Hardin flanked by his peers and state and local officials was given citations for his bravery from the Kentucky House of Representatives and Kentucky Senate. Sheriff Helmig from the Boone County Sheriff's department promoted Cody to "Honorary" Boone County Deputy. Deputy Kenny Burcham who arrested the man who allegedly tried to kidnap the student was also honored for his actions. Cody Hardin's family was there to see him honored.
In a twist of irony Cody says not long after the incident a fortune cookie message he received from a meal at a local Chinese restaurant said, "Aspire to help others." Cody has done that and so much more!
