Posted in:

LINCOLN — Bow Valley native, and Hartington High School graduate Gov. Charlie Thone died today in Lincoln. Thone, 94, served in Congress and as Governor during his storied career. The Cedar County News created the Charlie Thone Leadership Award in 2015 to honor Thone and recognize outstanding Hartington students. Former Secretary of State and current Nebraska Press Association Executive Director Allen Beerman presented Gov. Thone with a copy of that plaque just before Christmas, 2015.
