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.)
