End of Year Festivities Part One

It just doesn't seem quite possible that the school year is drawing to a close.  Over the weekend, we celebrated several milestones with students.

Friday night we had our annual 8th grade Night of Blessing with our eighth grade class.  Each student read a verse, we had a few speakers and a slide show of our eighth graders.  We end the service with all of our students coming forward for family and friends to pray over them as they end their time in middle school and begin their journey in high school.  It is always a touching time to me.

Saturday was the Graduation Ceremony for our 4th Graduating class.  Due to ongoing construction on our gymnasium, we held the service at a local church.  Our speaker, Rev. John Cravens, did a fabulous job challenging our graduates to not only make good choices academically, but to turn to God for guidance and wisdom as King Solomon did.  He gave sound, biblical advice and spoke truth to our graduates.  I pray they received his challenge.  All five students are planning to attend college in the fall:  Taylor to Purdue University, Noah to the University of Kentucky, Daniel to the University of the Cumberlands, Kendall to Georgetown College and Cameron to Murray State University.  The service was followed by a simple reception.

We are extremely proud of our graduates and all they have accomplished!
