Lane Hobbs, the son of Greg and Megan Hobbs (Vine Grove), recently placed 5th in the nation with his sculpture of the Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Hobbs’ sculpture was a product of his involvement in the East Hardin Middle School Beta Club. He sculpted it this past school year as a 7th grader and placed second in the state. This qualified him to travel to Walt Disney World recently to compete against the nation. While there, he also placed 1st in another category, along with two fellow classmates, for their creation of a lion using recyclable materials. His grandfather, Tommy Hobbs, owns a farm in Flaherty where Lane began sculpting with recyclable materials from a young age, using grass strings, duct tape, nails, screws, cardboard, lumber and whatever else he could find to create anything his creative young mind could think of.
