What’s Up at KOPR?

Summertime Fun-time at KOPR

We are enjoying summer and all the fun that it offers—and our wonderful clients are helping to keep the season active and entertaining!

Central Market has been chockfull of summertime activities, with a new ice cream festival, joining longtime favorites like Wine Week and the beloved Hatch Festival. Culinary celebrities joined in—renowned chef Sara Moulton is visiting the CM cooking school to hold forth at a sold-out class.

In June, St. David’s Foundation gave over $25 million to area non-profits to promote a healthier central Texas, with $11 million going to area safety-net clinics. This revered locally-based foundation reprised their highly sought after Neal Kocurek scholarships, awarding $7,500 per year each to 54 central Texas high school graduates who are headed to college to pursue healthcare-related careers.

East Texas Electric Cooperative (ETEC) General Manager Edd Hargett recently retired after serving at the helm for over a decade. A festive reception and lunch were hosted in Edd’s honor in late June, with plenty of anecdotes and reminiscences of Edd’s stellar career in both the electric cooperative field, as well as the football field.

 As Fall approaches, KOPR bids a fond farewell to our summer interns Amanda Lewis, Katia Banic and Kristen Verheyden. Amanda, who hails from Austin, returns to continue her college career at the University of Georgia. Katia and Kristen are both recent UT graduates who are heading out to the work world, and we wish them all the best. We’ll miss you!

Although it’s always bittersweet to see summer go, we’re looking forward to the cooler temperatures of fall and all the exciting events that are part of the season.

Best wishes,

All of us at KOPR
