Central Hardin Senior Jackson Flanagan thought about leaving school early on Friday, but instead, he was surprised by his family, friends, and community with a very special presentation. Even Congressman Brett Guthrie had to part of the unveiling. 

To give you an idea of how competitive it is to get into the US Naval Academy, out of 100 applicants, only 8.5 percent are admitted.

Flanagan is a grandson of the former senior pastor at Beaver Dam Baptist Church, Bro. Glenn Armstrong. Jackson's grandmother Elaine is a former educator in Ohio County.
