From the Superintendent

I want to thank all of you who came to our special Veterans Ceremony last Friday. I especially want to thank our middle school teachers, Susan Knox, Michelle Chisam, and Stephanie Hobbs, for their hard work in organizing this event. I thought that our children did a wonderful job with the ceremony. Thank you again for coming out to recognize the veterans in our community.

Most of you have probably read the article in the sports section of last Friday’s Southern Standard about Mrs. Jeanne Hagar and her retirement from coaching. Coach Hagar has been a member of the Boyd family for many years, and I am thankful that she will remain at Boyd. I know that teaching Bible class and directing our chorus are especially rewarding to her. Coach Hagar has a tremendous love for our school and for God. I am especially proud of her work in organizing and directing our chorus. These young people are wonderful representatives of our school. On Friday I had the opportunity to hear them sing the National Anthem in front of over 1,000 people at the state basketball championships at Lipscomb University, and they were outstanding. This was a tremendous honor for our students. There are 18 sessions during the tournament, and our chorus was selected from over 50 applicants from all over the state. I hope that all of you will join with me in the next few days in expressing your appreciation to Coach Hagar.

Our Monday, we will have a visitor from Homeland Community Bank. This visitor will talk to the students about banking.
