THINKING OF CHRIS



There can be some emotional moments in the annual Awards Night program in the RHS Auditorium, but not many like this one Thursday. County Agent Cheryl Walker presented the first Chris Holcombe Memorial Scholarship in memory of her sister, longtime County Agent Chris Holcombe who died Jan. 3 after a nine-year battle with breast cancer. Recipient was RHS senior William Dean, who, like hundreds before and since, considered himself one of ‘Chris’s Kids.’ The Milam County 4-H Foundation sponsored the $500 scholarship.
