Wednesday, May 01, 2019 – I Am Afraid
I am afraid and here is why. Last week I visited Magnolia High School. Of course, this is not the same facility from which I graduated many years ago.
Near the entrance were six really big photographs of outstanding graduates from MHS. There was Mr. Lester Goodson standing with a group, Mrs. Celeste Graves, riding a camel, Buddy Dial from his Pittsburg Steeler Days, a 1960 graduate whose name I forgot, but in his judge’s robe, Jerry Yelverton, riding a bucking bronco, and Dr. Cecil Groves throwing a shot put.
Congratulations to all of these trailblazers and graduates of Magnolia High School. Thank you to all of the outstanding teachers and coaches we had during those years. I hope we made you proud.
I am not sure how the selections were made, but I have been told “You are next.” Here is why I am afraid. They will use this photograph from my sophomore year at Magnolia High School. If you do, my Mother will come down from Heaven and make you do retakes, just like she made me back in 1965!
