Jenkins will miss Hall

To the Editor:

The recent passing of Rick Hall in September 2021 reminded me this was another one of my Track Boys who has died in recent years.

Rick’s father, Wilburn, and I attended Jenkins High School and Pikeville College together. Both Wilburn and I were on the college track team.

Rick was known for his many years of work with local T.V. If there was an event going on, Rick was there to film it, interview people and inform the public.

When I was elected Mayor there were several committees set up to advise the City Council and to get the public involved. Rick and his dad, Wilburn, served on the Utility Commission. During their time on the Commission, the City began to replace old waterlines. Today the City has replaced all of the waterlines, thanks to the foresight of the Utility Commission.

One way a person’s life is judged is by their contribution to their community and society. Rick certainly met this criteria. He will be greatly missed in the Jenkins Community.

Former Mayor, City of Jenkins
