HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA! IN MEMORY


I would like to introduce myself...
My name is Felicia Chisholm Hopper and I will be assuming the role as Horn Lake Eagle News website caretaker. My husband, Brandon Hopper, and I are members of the graduating class of 1988 and proud residents of DeSoto County. As you may have read previously, our current webmaster, Doug Hardin, has decided to retire after many years of providing his creativity, vision, and thoughtfulness to the Horn Lake Eagle News website. Being a member of the graduating class of 1958, he took great pains in sharing important HLHS Alumni news and information. My goal is to maintain the site that Doug created and build upon his vision of sharing. Please contact me to submit any content that you would like to have added to the website. You can do this by sending emails direct to hlhsalumninews@gmail.com

I HAD A RECENT VISIT WITH THE HLHS PRINCIPAL, ANDY ORR. DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER HE VIEWED OUR HORN LAKE EAGLE NEWS WEBSITE AND ASKED IF HE COULD LINK IT TO THE SCHOOL'S WEBSITE, WHICH HE CAN, AND WILL DO, SHORTLY. HE LOVES HIS ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES THERE...HAS A REAL PASSION FOR THE SCHOOL....
HE THEN TOLD ME ABOUT  HORN LAKE TV  WHICH IS BASICALLY A TV STATION WITHIN THE SCHOOL,  RUN BY STUDENTS,  AND, OF COURSE,  MONITORED BY THE ADMINISTRATION (FOR THOSE OF US IN THE CLASS OF '58, CAN YOU IMAGINE A VIDEO CAMERA IN THE HANDS OF....SAY....BOBBY GILBERT WHERE HE COULD HAVE CHANNELED ALL OF HIS CREATIVITY?)....ANYWAY, THEY 'BROADCAST' THEIR PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL.....YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT (AND NOT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT) THAT IT REVEALS THE HIGH QUALITY OF STUDENTS WHICH STILL WALK THE HALLS OF OUR GREAT SCHOOL!......('CLICK' ON THE LINK BELOW AND 'CLICK' THE 'RETURN ARROW' IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER TO GET BACK TO THIS WEBSITE.)
