Farmersville resident Linda Hess has made her mark on Collin County by documenting its history for over two decades.
Hess’ dedication as a Collin County Historical Commission (CCHC) member and volunteer earned her a Yellow Rose of Texas award last month, the highest honor that can be bestowed to women by the Texas Governor. The award is only given to those who have presented exceptional community service through volunteerism, charitable contributions, achievements related to the preservation of history or achievements toward improving the present and future.
