A local author now has the distinction of having four of his books available for check-out in the Cherokee County School System.
Thursday morning David Hartline met with Superintendent Mitchell Guice, several Board of Education members and other staff members at the Central Board Office – East Main Street in Centre – where he presented the principal of each school in the county with copies of his books for use in their respective libraries.
Of course that includes Hartline’s first book, the best-selling “What a Soldier Gives” – based on his experiences in Vietnam and the return home; the introspective “Inner Thoughts”; the story of his close friend Billy G. McCoy “Definition of a Hero”, and his latest, the life story of local legend Tarzan White “The Real Tarzan”.
Hartline interviewed a long list of people who remembered White well, and he himself was a close personal friend of the man who was a war hero; professional football player; world champion wrestler and that’s just the start. These fast-paced books will provide students with an opportunity to truly enjoy learning about our local history and beyond.
