HjHS Celebrates Gentleman's Day
On December 16th, Hardin-Jefferson High School Celebrated Gentleman Day. On this day, we wanted to showcase the fine gentlemen that attend school here at HJ. Our goal was to exhibit the etiquette of the perfect gentleman and allow others to see the standards to which a man should hold himself. We hope others will see values such as respect, honesty, and decency reflected in every male here at HJ High School. We want to thank those who participated on this occasion, but let us remember that courtesy is not an occasional thing. It's something we emphasize today that should shine through us everyday. We want to show those around us how a gentleman should act each and everyday!
