We want to express our sympathy to the family of Perry Evans, Special Education Teacher at North Hopkins ISD. He worked for the Hopkins County Special Education Cooperative as a teacher and bus driver. He was killed in a bus crash on Monday morning, October 10th. The driver of the car, Larry Resindez, also died. Please remember these families in your prayers. Also, be in prayer for Cherrie Bolden Brantley who is recovering from injuries incurred in the wreck.
Floyd and Martha Payton enjoyed a visit from their daughter, Regina, beginning Wednesday evening through Sunday morning. Martha said they had several chores to accomplish. They enjoyed lunch out on Thursday and report watching a “good football game on Saturday afternoon, A&M beat Tennessee.” On Tuesday Floyd and Martha met met Martha’s brother, Von Honzell, in Greenville for lunch at the Cotton Patch, after Floyd’s visit with the dermatologist. He has an eighty-sixth birthday just around the corner. Von is about to get all his storm damage completed after the big storm in several areas around him. Martha comments, “Floyd is a little tired today from the activities yesterday, but is feeling much better.”
A good group – around 50 – attended the North Hopkins Alumni Homecoming on Saturday, October 8th. Everyone enjoyed a time of visiting, playing Bingo, eating, watching a video honoring the Classes of 1966, 1976, and 1986, and listening to the music of the Monday Night Jam band. Members of the honored classes shared a little about themselves. The next alumni homecoming will be held on October 14, 2017.
