Around two dozen people attended a ceremony to honor the late Chris King, who was a Wharton County commissioner for nearly three decades. He was honored outside of the East Bernard Library on Monday, Nov. 9. Elected officials from the Commissioners Court offered kind words about King, as did WC Library System Director Elene Gedevani. King passed away July 23, 2019. He was 64 at the time of his passing.
