It still means something!



Luther Meade, 87, of Kingscreek, shed tears of joy as he looked at the high school diploma he was presented Monday during a Veterans Day event at Letcher County Central High School. Meade, a World War II veteran, was surprised with the diploma from the old Kingdom Come High School. “It tickled me to death,” said Meade. “It means a whole lot.” Meade founded Meade & Shepherd Coal Company along with his brother Talmage Meade and Lawrence Shepherd.
