Just a day before West Virginia's 146th birthday, winners of the prestigious Golden Horseshoe Award came home to be knighted. The men and women, for different reasons, were not given the honor when they actually won the award in middle school. The Golden Horseshoe is given to middle school students who display remarkable knowledge about West Virginia and her history. On June 19, several men and women were given the belated but deserved honor of being designated a Knight or Lady of the Golden Horseshoe.
