Union floor dedicated to Marion native
Union County has dedicated its gymnasium floor to the memory of Gerald "Hoopy" Tabor, a longtime coach at Union County.
Tabor is originally from Marion and is a member of the Marion-Crittenden County Athletic Hall of Fame, the Union County Athletic Hall of Fame and the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame. His girls' team won a state championship for Union County.
The Union County student body sold T-shirts to commemorate the event and the proceeds will help UCHS students travel to the Philippines on a mission trip.
Pictured are Tabor's daughters Holly and Tanya during the dedication ceremony.
Tabor died earlier this year.
