Legacy of Condy Harmon
Family came first, so Condy quit school to mine coal and support his mother, brothers, and sisters. he never married, and died at age 24 in the 1911 Cross Mountain Mine explosion. To this day, Harmon descendants, as well as Briceville students, honor his sacrifice by graduating from high school and college. What a fitting tribute that is to a Briceville student from long ago.
