Student Interns Working Door-to-Door in Hopkins County this Summer



The Hopkins County Fiscal Court and Hopkins County Sheriff's Office would like to inform the community that there are a couple young men that you may encounter in the community working on their summer internship. The young men going door to door are legitimate sales people with Southwestern Advantage. The first one's name is Jake, a college student from Minnesota, and the other's name is Arnold, a college intern from North Dakota.  They are working with Southwestern Advantage for the summer, showing educational books, websites, and apps to help with Early Learning, saving time with homework, and ACT/SAT prep.


As a gesture to the community, Jake and Arnold took time today to visit with Hopkins County Sheriff's Office Major Charlie Young at the Hopkins County Government Center to introduce themselves and to inform the community of their presence.
