JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio (WTRF) — In just a few days, a hometown guy who made it big as a playwright and a screenwriter will return to the Ohio Valley.

Jeffrey Hatcher is coming home for the Herald-Star Speaker series. He will share how growing up and attending Wintersville High School, now Indian Creek, prepared him to become the award- winning playwright he is today.
