Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a video or two to brighten your morning.

Hopkinton native Kevin Sager finalized his homecoming when he was approved Friday afternoon by the Select Board to become the town’s newest police officer. Sager, who grew up on Blackthorne Circle (off Granite Street), said that as a child he looked up to the police in town.

Hariharan “Harry” Shanmugam of Hopkinton, a member of the Boston College Class of 2021, was presented with the university’s most prestigious graduation honor at commencement on May 24: the Edward H. Finnegan, S.J., Award, given to the graduating senior who best exemplifies Boston College’s motto, “Ever to Excel.” He was chosen for this honor out of a class of some 2,200 students.

Hopkinton’s latest COVID-19 update shows seven active cases in town and includes information on town buildings reopening to the public without the need for appointments, starting tomorrow.
