The Log's own Tina Harbuck leads this year's Christmas parade

Published: Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 02:26 PM.

Tina interviewed Destin's first mayor Bob McIlroy, saw the grand opening of Highway 98 and countless developments come to fruition. But journalism is most gratifying for Tina when she gets to tell stories about inspirational people.

"One of my most humbling moments on the job was when I got to report on a double-amputee gentleman," she said. "He swims and does triathlons. Not only did he inspire me, but I was able to tell his story and touch other lives."

Tina said she was "blown away" when she was told she was chosen to lead the Christmas parade. She was busy at her desk at work when she got the call bearing good news.

"I've covered the parade for years, never thought that I would be one day leading it," she said. "I don't know how I even made the list, but I am honored."
