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

FOR YOUR NEW YEAR, THERE IS THIS.......
(Author Unknown)

I am the new year. I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living. I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the last twelve months.
All that you sought and didn't find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search for it, but with more determination.
All the good that you tried for, and didn't achieve, is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.
All that you dreamed but didn't dare to do; all that you hoped but did not will; all the faith that you claimed but did not have---these slumber slightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of strong purpose.
 
I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to Him who said,
"Behold, I make all things new."
(The Revelation of St. John 21:5)
