    Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been said that no one represents Hillsboro City Schools with any more pride and passion than Beverly Rhoads. Born and raised in Highland County, Rhoads graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1957 and went on to devote 62 years (and counting) to the school district.

    Former State Rep. Cliff Rosenberger, who represented Highland County in the Ohio House of Representatives, read his final proclamation in the 129th General Assembly, written in Betty Bishop's honor. “If there was a Hall of Fame for public officials in Highland County, Betty would be the first person inducted,” Rosenberger said. “There is no harder worker or better advocate for the city of Greenfield. To Betty, it’s not about numbers, it’s about putting food on people’s plates; it’s about educating children; and it’s about finding jobs for the people."

    Each year, the Highland County Historical Society sponsors a banner that hangs at the corner of East Main Street and South East Street near the Highland House Museum. Over the past few years, the society has honored Raymond Stout (the first Highland County soldier killed in World War I), Bob Hodson, Gov. Joseph Foraker and Gov. Allen Trimble. This year, the HCHS is honoring the late John Mills Barrere.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as many of you know, Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. From 1868 to 1970, it was observed on May 30. Since that time, it’s been observed on the last Monday in May. Math has never been my strong suit, but my calculator tells me the first Decoration Day was observed 154 years ago.

As we discussed earlier, he built the first gristmill in Highland County, was the first state representative from Highland County, and was a farmer.
