RC & Elizabeth Hoppe Memorial Scholarship

Robert and Elizabeth Hoppe were integral parts of the Abilene community before most Abilenians were born. Robert Hoppe was an Abilene High alumni and Abilene’s city engineer in 1937 where he planned much of the construction for Lake Fort Phantom. Elizabeth Grey Wood was an Abilene High and Hardin-Simmons University alumni; she taught for the Stamford School District. The Hoppe’s continually spoke of the future and refused to dwell on the past; their dedication to the future through education will live on in this scholarship.
