The Sulphur Springs High School honor graduates were feted last week at the Honors Breakfast, but they weren’t the only SSHS students who participated in the event.
The full breakfast held at the Hopkins County Civic Center was student-driven, including decorations, food, centerpieces, and even charcuterie boards. Education at the high school level isn’t just English and history nowadays. It’s a full curriculum designed to prepare students for college, the workforce, or the military, whichever they choose.
The Honors Breakfast not only feted the cream of the crop academically but showed us how diversified the SSHS student body is.
The Third Annual Chamber Showcase is Thursday, Aug. 5, at the Sulphur Springs Country Club. Booths are available for $60 each, and we ask vendors to bring a $25 gift or gift card for random drawings. It is a fantastic networking event and a way for you to get your name and services out to the public as a business owner or representative. Only Chamber members can reserve booths for display, and the public may attend free of charge. Contact us at the Chamber to find out how your affordable annual membership not only allows you to rent a booth at the Showcase but gives you advantages and opportunities all year long. Come by or call the Chamber office at 903-885-6515 for more information. A registration link is on our website, hopkinschamber.org.
