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

JUST FOR OLD TIME MEMORIES, HERE IS THE AWESOME 1958 TRACK TEAM....OF PARTICULAR NOTE, THE GUY ON THE BACK ROW IN THE COLORED JERSEY IS... MARVIN FOWLER....HE ONCE HELD THE MS. STATE RECORD FOR HIGH JUMP AMONG B-BB SCHOOLS....MARVIN WAS 5' 9" TALL AND I (DOUG HARDIN) SAW HIM CLEAR THE BAR IN THE MID-SOUTH RELAYS THAT YEAR AT 6' 3"....I DROVE HIM TO THE FAIR GROUNDS ARRIVING LATE TO THAT MEET. HE HAD JUST WON A LOCAL MEET AT WHITEHAVEN HIGH....THE OFFICIAL TOLD HIM HE WOULD HAVE TO BEGIN AT THE HEIGHT NOW SET....WHEN HE TOLD MARVIN THE PRESENT HEIGHT, MARVIN SAID "I'LL PASS UNTIL IT GETS A LITTLE HIGHER."..LOL..HE CLEARED A COUPLE OF JUMPS AND ELIMINATED THE COMPETITION..

THEN THERE IS THIS.....HORN LAKE HIGH HAS HAD MANY GOOD ATHLETES WALK ITS HALLWAYS....BILL WORSHAM... IS ONE OF THOSE......BUT THERE IS MUCH MORE TO THIS FRIEND AND SCHOOLMATE.....IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE SO, GO TO THE 'EAGLE WINGS' PAGE OF THIS WEBSITE AND READ HIS STORY OF PAIN AND PERSEVERANCE AT THE HANDS OF CASTRO...NOW, READ THIS PIECE OF CREATIVE WRITING THAT COMES FROM THE MIND AND SPIRIT OF ONE OF GOD'S BEST MEN......IT IS AMAZING...

OUR TRUE FRIEND AND 2019 HALL OF FAME MEMBER, BOB RILEY WAS ON HAND FOR OUR MARCH LUNCHEON. COPIES OF HIS BOOK WERE AVAILABLE AND A GREAT CROWD WAS PRESENT. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A COPY OF HIS BOOK, YOU CAN CONTACT HIM BY EMAIL AT "bobwriley@gmail.com"!

THIS WEBSITE IS DEDICATED TO THE HARD-WORKING, SELF-GIVING TEACHERS, COACHES, ADMINISTRATORS, AND SUPPORT STAFF OF THE HORN LAKE SCHOOL SYSTEM IN HORN LAKE, MS.

THERE IS NOW A NEW PAGE NOTED IN THE ABOVE LINK AS.....'IN MEMORY'.... WHICH WILL PROVIDE AN ALPHABETICAL LISTING OF THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN A PART OF THE HORN LAKE SCHOOL EXPERIENCE, BUT WHOSE 'EAGLE'S WINGS' HAVE TAKEN THEM BEYOND THE BONDS OF THIS EARTH.....THE NAMES HAVE COME FROM THE NEWSLETTERS SINCE THE FIRST EDITION IN 2003, AND FROM LOCAL NEWSPAPER OBITUARIES THAT I HAVE NOTED OVER THE YEARS....IT WILL NOT BE AN EXHAUSTIVE LIST, BUT WILL ENABLE US TO REFLECT ON, AND GIVE THANKS FOR, THOSE WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE US.....


THERE ARE OVER FIVE (5) YEARS OF PICTURES FROM THE FIRST FRIDAY LUNCHEONS....TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO VISIT THAT 'PAGE' AND SEE HOW YOU/WE HAVE AGED AND HOW MANY OF OUR GROUP ARE NO LONGER WITH US.....

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.)
