Tommy Harris in Honor Of Black History Month

In light of Black History Month, we would like to commemorate a member of our community who embodies the spirit of excellence and positively influences the lives of those who live here in Sulphur Springs, Mr. Tommy Harrison. Mr. Harrison is an inspirational man who proudly served this country for 40 years before retiring from the US Department of Defense and returning here to Sulphur Springs five years ago. In that time he has become a very important member of our community. He sits as part of the city council and zoning board and is known for his humble, selfless, and kind spirit. He lives by the scripture “a man that hath friends must shew himself friendly; and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Prov 18:24 KJV) And this is shown by Mr. Harrison’s hospitable actions towards others daily.

In wake of the recent ice storm we experienced here in Sulphur Springs, Mr. Harrison was seen checking on the wellbeing of his neighbors as well as the community abroad. He made phone calls on behalf of those in need and stopped by the homes of others to see where he could offer his assistance. He also stands on the scripture “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” (Prov 27:17 KJV). He is recognized as a man that always has the thought in his mind of how he can be a service to others in his community and this city.

Tommy Harrison is a man who loves God, family, this city, and this country and we want to honor him and thank him for continuing to be a compassionate inspiration to this community and those around him.
