My name is Kelly Hopkins. My father, Jackie Hopkins, named me after his good friend and mentor ASP Sgt. Kelly R. Pigue. Let me just say that it is an honor to carry his name. My father was also a Trooper. He graduated the academy 6 weeks before Kelly's accident, and Kelly never got to see him in uniform.
