Deputies from the Hutchinson County Sheriffâ€™s Office, along with officers from the Department of Public Safety and the Borger Police Department went bald for one of their own on Saturday. These officers shaved their heads on Saturday on behalf of Ruth Frederick, an office secretary for the HCSO.
Frederick, who has worked for the office for more than 20 years, was diagnosed with breast cancer and begins her chemotherapy this week.
The event took place this past Saturday at W&S Day Spa. Chief Deputy James Qualls stated that the officers wanted Frederick to know they were in her corner.
Two government entities will be meeting in Stinnett this evening.
