Lynn Hopper Memorial Scholarship: 

  • The college scholarship offered by the APMA was named the Lynn Hopper Memorial Scholarship to honor a founder of Hopper Termite and Pest Management in Mountain Home. Lynn Hopper was a very active member of the Arkansas Pest Management Association for more than 30 years, president for two terms, and a board member.
  • The first scholarship, originally $500 per semester, was awarded for the Fall 2003 semester. It is now the goal to award $1000 per semester to each student for up to four years.
  • Contributions to the fund can be made at any time to the APMA: PO Box 26243, Little Rock, AR 72221or online HERE.
  • Scholarship winners are invited to the APMA General Membership Meeting every July for check presentation and recognition. An article and photo are then published in the APMA newsletter and press releases can be sent to local publications if the winner so chooses as well.
  • Members of the Hopper family continue to be active in the Arkansas Pest Management Association, actively serving on the Board, on committees, and continuing to support the scholarship fund. Their family legacy of contributions to this organization is appreciated.

David Hopper, son of the late Lynn Hopper, said "Having been such an active member, this is something he would have been proud of because he was dedicated to the association and had supported the scholarship," said David, a partner in the Mountain Home business with his cousin, Mark Hopper. He said planning was underway for the scholarship before his father’s death, but it was named in his honor following Lynn Hopper’s death.
