The Fleming-Neon Middle School football team honored Neon dentist Dr. Sam Quillen on Tuesday by dedicating the Fleming Neon football field to him.
Coach Ben McCray made the dedication in a surprise ceremony.
State Rep. Angie Hatton also presented Quillen with a governor’s award for his service.
Quillen has been a longtime supporter of the football programs in the county, especially those at Fleming-Neon. He has also served on the county school board, and was on the committee to plan for Letcher County Central High School.
