Sparta, NC – The Alleghany County Commissioners today enacted a resolution to honor Kenny and Cheryl Harris of Sparta for dedicated community service, including over 20 years serving as foster parents.   

“On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, I would like to thank the Harrises for everything they do and have done for the young people of Alleghany County,” stated Mark Evans, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners.  “They have continually placed the wellbeing of children above their own.  They are truly remarkable folks.”
