UTICA — The North Fork community on Tuesday added three members to its Hall of Honors in the 11th annual induction ceremony. The Hall of Honors recognizes outstanding graduates, former employees of the distinct, patrons and others whose achievements reflect positively upon the district in some significant way.
Former North Fork teachers Eleanor and Harley Hanna were the first to be inducted Tuesday. Larry Friesel said the couple influenced hundreds of children in a positive way and said Mr. Hannah was the proudest veteran he had ever seen. “As for Mrs. Hannah,” Friesel said, “the kids all loved her.”
The couple’s son Robert Hannah accepted the award on behalf of his parents. “This feels great,” he told the News. “People always talk about them and it’s always nice to know they are remembered.”
Christy Wilbur, FFA advisor, presented honoree John Wright. She said he was an active member of Utica FFA, Ohio Farm Bureau and the Land of Legend Antique tractor Club. He continues to spend countless hours on behalf of the vocational agriculture and FFA programs at Utica High School.
