Crystal Farmer

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.”
