Hemphill High School, Class of 2017, seniors honored

June 5, 2017

Thirty – Seventh (37th!) Senior Luncheon

The tradition of hosting the graduating seniors of Hemphill High School continues. Since 1980 the Methodist Women have provided a luncheon following the last graduation practice each May.   This year the luncheon was held on Wednesday, May 24.   It is a joy to interact with the seniors as they enjoy a last occasion to eat together before they embark on individual future plans. 

This year the congregation was invited to participate in congratulating these young people by writing a note or letter to someone selected at random. The cards were collected and with the gift of an FUMC writing pen were presented to each senior at the luncheon individually with good wishes and some hugs.  Thanks to all in the congregation who took part in this effort to identify personally with a senior. 

MW President Carole Teagle and Pastor Grant welcomed the class and Kazmine Godwin, one of the scholarship recipients and frequent attendee of FUMC gave the blessing before the meal.

The 74 seniors, their sponsors, senior teachers, and administrators enjoyed a bounty of food, beverages, and desserts. Such is the tradition as several teachers recalled their Senior Luncheon when they graduated from HISD.

Some of the many women who worked to decorate the fellowship hall and prepare the food worked quickly as students arrived. The 2017 senior class was extremely respectful and appreciative of the collective efforts of First United Methodist Church.
