Former Hindman Settlement School Director Honored

On February 19th, Mike Mullins, the executive director of the Hindman Settlement School in Knott County, died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 63. Mike served on the East Kentucky Leadership Board until his death and was always an advocate for Appalachia. At Thursday night's awards program, Mullins was honored posthumously as this year's East Kentucky Leadership Tony Turner award winner, and a moment of silence was held in his memory.
