Fund started in honor of fallen Paris Paramedic

PARIS, TX-- A non-profit memorial fund has been set up in honor of a fallen Paris Paramedic.

The Joe Howard Memorial Foundation was launched to fully fund the Joe Howard endowment scholarship at Paris Junior College, and help the less fortunate children of Lamar County with school supplies and Christmas gifts.

Howard, who was a 12-year veteran paramedic, died in a motorcycle accident last October.

The foundation will have its first Papa Joe's Fishing tournament in September at Pat Mayse Lake.
