Hundreds of Hopkins County students get new shoes


HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – About 700 students in Hopkins County have received a new pair of shoes thanks to a donation from a local non-profit. Students got to decide which pair they liked the best.

The chair of Hopkins County Happy Feet and Independence Bank Vice President Cheri McNary said she had no idea such a problem existed until she got involved.

The program launched in 2012 and benefits students in the Hopkins County School District and Dawson Springs Independent Schools.

Since the program started, more than 5,500 students have received new shoes.
