Congratulations to all of the college graduates! Time flies, as it seems they were all just graduating from high school! Andy Burleson (University of Southern Mississippi), Emma Elgin, Kaitlyn Elliot, Katherine and Michael Farese, Judy Forester (master’s degree) and Kelsey Shaw, all from the University of Mississippi.
With all of the local high schools’ graduating seniors, as well as Holy Family’s eighth grade class, it would be dismissive to not mention how vast this world is and how many opportunities await each and every one of you. Your first year of college may be the hardest you have ever faced, but do not get discouraged. Dig deeply and find the fortitude to persevere. It is a struggle coming from a small town like ours going off anywhere. Make the most of it – you will find lifelong friends in college and make memories to share with your children on down the road. Congratulations to each and every one of you!
Happy second Birthday to Hadley Jenkins! She celebrated her birthday over the weekend with family and friends. She is the beautiful daughter of Molly and Bart Jenkins of Mt. Pleasant.
