MIAMI COUNTY — Hard work paid off ‘pig’ time for 10 year-old Dylan Hollowell on Tuesday night.

“I like working with them every night and getting them ready for the shows,” he said.

Hollowell will be in fifth grade at Covington Elementary School.

He is the son of Stacy and Randy Hollowell of Covington.
