Honor Roll: Scott County, Virginia, Gate City High School

Scott County, Virginia, formed in 1814 from parts of surrounding counties, is just north Kingsport, Tennessee, and south of West Virginia. It's about as far away from where I live and still be in the same state. Gate City is the county seat and the Gate City High School, a public school, was built in 1956. On an exterior wall of the school is a plaque commemorating the service of the county men and women who served in World War I and World War II.
