  • Mary Florence Long Scholarship winners The Mary Florence Long Scholarship was presented for the first time to three graduates from Hopkins County Central High School. The Board of Education honored recipients on June 5. Each student received a $2,000 scholarship. Scholarship recipients are Mya DeHay, Chase French and Abigail Foster. Congratulations to the winners! Mrs. Long, who died in February 2008, specified that part of her estate would be used to provide scholarships for Hopkins County Central High School graduates. Her husband, Raymond Long, was a teacher at St. Charles for about nine years and the family lived in Mortons Gap. We honor and recognize Mrs. Long for making this generous decision that will benefit local students for years to come. Anyone who is considering setting up a similar scholarship fund is welcome to contact district administrators for more information.
