School Story:

When I started the 7th grade, Harding was made into a high school one year at a time. Thus, I was able to spend my junior and senior high school days at Harding High School. I was a member of the National Honor Society; participated in the chorus program; won the Secretarial and Bookkeeping Awards in my senior year; participated in team sports.
