George Henry Hughes, simply known in the community as George Henry, is the 2019 “Grand Marshal” for the annual Louisville Christmas Parade on Monday December 2. George Henry was born to Mae Alice Hughes and later adopted by his great aunt and uncle, Henry and Angie Hunt.
After their passing, he was placed with Mildred Triplett by Rev. Davis of Mount Moriah M.B. Church in Louisville. George Henry is still an active member of Mount Moriah and he loves his church. At church, he is an usher and a member of the choir.
George Henry loves to go out in his community and collect names to bring back to Pastor so he can pray for them. Not only is George Henry a church-going man, but he also loves to work. He works with his good friend Justin Dempsey at M&N Computers every Wednesday. On Thursdays, after church, he looks forward to going to his favorite restaurant KFC.
“We are so honored to have George Henry Hughes as the most important person of this year’s Christmas Parade,” saidWinston County Chamber of Commerce staff.
