The Texas Tech flag and the Texas A & MCommerce flag will fly at the courthouse during the week of December 3-10,2018. Texas Tech raised the most money for the Fly Your Flag fundraiser for the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation, according to Meredith Caddell, CEO of the Foundation. Texas A & M Commerce had the most participants to pledge during the event. The $9,006 raised will be used to purchase the 3D Mammography Machine with Biopsy Needle for the new Women’s Center at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Spring.
Not only will the school flags fly at the courthouse but both schools will present a $500 scholarship to a Hopkins County school graduate choosing to attend their university.
The Fly Your Flag event was open to persons who love their college alma maters. The annual event allows the college/university that raises the most money on ‘Fly your Flag’ Day to have their college colors flown above the Hopkins County Courthouse for a whole week. This year the event was conducted on Tuesday, November 20th. The planning committee members, Charles Helm, Michael Lamb, Mikki Eddins, Holly Ragan, and Caddell, along with a few others manned phones and the big board at Celebration Plaza to receive bids.
