By Submitted, 08/16/18 8:47 AM

One of Hope’s most vital volunteers was honored Wednesday August 15th by the Senior Arkansans Hall of Fame. The certificate was signed by the Deputy Director of the Arkansas Department of Human Services Division of Aging, Adult, and Behavioral Health Services. Hogue was nominated to the Hall of Fame this year. Although he wasn’t inducted into the HOF, it was requested that he travel to North Little Rock to be recognized for his effort.
Hogue is a retired service station/convenience store owner who operated Hogue’s Exxon in Hope for over fifty years. He raised racehorses for many years and since his retirement has spent many years doing community work. He is a former Hope/Hempstead County Citizen of the Year. Mr. Hogue is an active member of the Hope Noon Lions, active in the local Republican party, and is an active member of First Baptist Church. He is well-known for his efforts several years ago to collect and send two tractor-trailer loads of supplies to tornado victims in Joplin, Missouri, an operation he termed “Hope for Joplin”. Currently he is engaged in collecting supplies to take to the Ronald McDonald House in Little Rock.
Mr. Hogue is shown with his wife Rosetta. The Hogues have been married over 60 years and are partners all the way. Our congratulations go to Richard Hogue for his recognition by the Senior Arkansans Hall of Fame!
