Cherokee County Herald - - VIEWPOINTS -

“The County Com­mis­sion hereby adopts this res­o­lu­tion hon­or­ing En­sign Micky Shane Hall, United States Navy for his grad­u­a­tion from the United States Navy Academy in Anapo­lis, Mary­land,” stated the res­o­lu­tion.

“This mo­men­tous achieve­ment re­flects great credit upon all Cedar Bluff High School and the ci­ti­zens of Chero­kee County.”

En­sign Hall could not be present for the pre­sen­ta­tion, Chair­man Day said, be­cause he is cur­rently at the Naval Academy to train the in­com­ing class.

Chair­man Day shared a few com­ments about how he first met En­sign Hall. It was dur­ing a Cen­tre Lions Club Lead­er­ship Sem­i­nar.

“And all the peo­ple who were there from the dif­fer­ent schools got up and said where they are go­ing to go to school,” said Day. “And mostly you hear Gads­den State, Jack­sonville State, Alabama, Auburn, so many re­gional col­leges there. I am sit­ting there and not pay­ing much at­ten­tion and then all of a sud­den I hear ‘I am Shane Hall, I am from Cedar Bluff and I want to go to the Naval Academy. I am like ‘wow,’ be­cause it was 13 years be­tween my­self and the last per­son to go to West Point and there was an­other 14 years be­fore we sent David Chesnut.”
