Tom Eblen: Hazel Green Academy students celebrate reunion with plans to restore campus buildings

At the Hazel Green Academy boarding school's old campus Saturday, we found more than 100 other former students. Many had their own stories of long-ago teachers, mentors, life lessons and life-changing experiences. Founded in 1880 by local residents, Hazel Green Academy was one of the few comprehensive schools available to young men and women in this part of Eastern Kentucky's mountains.
