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

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE NOVEMBER LUNCHEON!!
JOHN BABB, WHO WAS RECENTLY INDUCTED INTO THE HLHS HALL OF FAME, WILL HAVE A BOOK SIGNING AT THE LUNCHEON ON NOVEMBER 1st. HE HAS TWO BOOKS CURRENTLY PUBLISHED AND ANOTHER IS ON THE WAY.....HELP GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THIS.....BELOW IS AN EXCERPT FROM ONE OF THE BOOKS...."VOICES OF THE DEAD....BATTLING THE YELLOW FEVER EPIDEMIC OF 1878"

"Battling the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1878" describes the four terror-filled months in 1878, when a yellow fever epidemic in the Lower Mississippi Valley struck 154 towns and cities, killed over 20,000 people, and wiped entire families and businesses from the face of the earth. A determined band of volunteer heroes and heroines fought the virus despite their limited medical knowledge. A Creole nurse from New Orleans travels north to help. An Irish chambermaid learns nursing and puts her life at risk trying to bring down her patients' fevers. A Jewish physician volunteers despite lacking immunity to the disease. A fisherman becomes one of the first black policemen in the South when the all-white force is decimated by the virus. Priests, sisters, reverends, rabbis, physicians, nurses, hearse drivers, gravediggers, retired military, an unashamed madam, a gambler Some survived, while others paid the ultimate price. And only one person can hear the pleading voices of the dead. While Memphis, New Orleans, and Vicksburg suffered the highest numbers of deaths, towns which had never experienced yellow fever before were struck - Grenada, Holly Springs, Water Valley, Senatobia, Hernando, and even tiny Horn Lake Station suffered from the epidemic."
