Some of Perry County's best citizens were honored at the 60th Annual Hazard-Perry County Civic Night, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.
The guest speaker was Kentucky Afield host Tim Farmer.
He talked about the motorcycle accident in 1984 that left him without the use of his right arm and how he was able to adapt.
“Bad things happen to good people and you can rise above those ashes and go beyond that and I hope that message comes out. You know, a guy lost his right arm, what are you going to do? Well, you can do a lot of things if you try and work hard and that's hopefully the message that I try to give out,” Farmer said.
Among the awards, Lindsay Caudill was Youth of the Year and Timothy Baker was Teen of the Year.
The Young Woman of the Year was Laura Feltner, the Young Man of the Year was Pastor Chris Fugate.
The woman of the year was long-time Hazard High School Choir Director Letha Patterson.
Former Hazard Independent Superintendent Fred Stidham was the Man of the Year.
Business owners Marty and Theresa Johnson received the William D. Gorman Humanitarian Award.
