HARTINGTON  —  Two awards are being created to ensure a pair of long-time Hartington ambassadors will be sure to be remembered by future generations.

These special awards are being established by the Cedar County News in an effort to make sure the many accomplishments of former Congressman and Governor Charlie Thone and former National Mother of the Year Joan Burney will be remembered by future generations of Hartington-Newcastle and Cedar Catholic High School students.
