Remember Your Why Award winners may be nominated by any district stakeholder, including staff, students, parents, and community members. The nomination form is available at www.hopkins.kyschools.us/RememberYourWhy.


  • Crystal Farmer, attendance secretary at Hopkins County Career and Technology Center, was presented with the Remember Your WhyGroup of people standing in front of desk in boardroom Award at the March 6 Board of Education meeting. She has a huge heart and wants our students to succeed! After hearing that a student did not have a home or caregiver, she took it upon herself to make sure the student’s needs were met. She helped the student find a stable home, food, and clothing. She also helped make sure this student had everything needed in order to take the nursing exams.

    She described her “why” as follows: “When I was made aware of the situation, I felt something deep inside telling me I had to speak up and do what I could to help. I have never had that exact feeling before, so it took me by surprise! I am so blessed to be able to make a difference in a young person’s life.”

  • Hopkins County Schools bus driver Dee Yates and bus monitor Brittany Holmes received the Eight people standing in front of board table Remember Your Why Award during the Board of Education meeting on Jan. 9.

    They found some packages in the road while driving an afternoon route one day before Christmas. A community member let us know that these employees took the time that afternoon to take the packages to the Sheriff’s Department. After finding out who the packages should have gone to, those people were contacted to let them know they could get their packages at the Sheriff’s Department. Both of these employees demonstrated great kindness and went out of their way to help others during the Christmas season!

    Dee Yates expressed her “why” by saying, “I love kids and I love driving.”

    Brittany Holmes said, “I had my CDL and wasn’t using it. I saw the desperate need for bus drivers, and thought I could help the community by taking some of the stress from parents and children in regards to transportation.”
