2018-2019 Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce High School Leadership Class has been named. This will be the 25th year that the Chamber of Commerce has facilitated this program for Hopkins county’s outstanding high school seniors. The students will participate in several classes throughout the school year including, the Ropes Challenge Course in Commerce, Justice, Order & Politics, Poverty, Crisis and Cultural Sensitivity, Education & Tomorrow’s Opportunities, Ethical Decision Making, and Tourism and Quality of Life. Then, to top off this year-long program, the students will take a field trip to the Dallas/Fort Worth area for a day of learning, fun, food, and fellowship.
This program has proven to be so beneficial to the students, the Sulphur Springs School Board has determined that the High School Leadership Class will be considered “co-curricular”. Students will not be counted absent on days they are participating in the program. Congratulations to the following students, who have been selected to the High School Leadership Class of 2018-2019.

Lezley Brown, Chamber CEO says, “Each student is about to begin this journey of practical knowledge beyond the classroom, and we are asking for your help! The students do not pay tuition for this program; therefore, your sponsorship will ensure this opportunity for them. Businesses in the community are being asked to sponsor scholarships for the students. Brown says the cost per student for the program is $125. Those businesses desiring to sponsor a student should contact the Chamber for more information.
