Former Paris Police Chief Bob Hundley has been named the new President of the 100 Club of Lamar County, and says he is “super honored to follow Stephen (Gerald) and Amanda (Willows) in the position.”
After he retired from 45 years in law enforcement, Hundley said he was honored to even join 100 Club of Lamar County’s Board of Directors.
“I look forward to continuing the great leadership our past presidents have provided and help make the 100 Club of Lamar County a trusted resource for our first responders,” Hundley said.
As difficult as it is to raise money a foundation hopes to never need, Hundley said the area responded “impressively when the club started.
“The horrific event of a first responder losing their life in the line of duty can only be compounded if the family of that responder is not taken care of properly,” he said. “These events are taking place way too regular for us not to be prepared. I promise you that no active responder will talk much about being killed, they will talk a lot about prevention, but it is hard to discuss the what if.”
Hundley said the 100 Club of Lamar County helps the first responder’s family to ensure economic stability “during a time when all else is going horribly wrong.”
