Mary Logan and Rosie Clark wore their prettiest dresses to watch their daddy, Jeffrey Todd Clark, walk with the "Non-traditional" students who graduated from Belhaven University recently. Todd also graduated with honors and received a bachelor's degree in business administration. Molly, his wife, watched proudly as her husband achieved their dream of each obtaining a college degree. Molly has a degree in education and teaches school.
Proud parents are Sally and Jeff Clark of Brandon. Grandparents are Babs Kirkland, Kelly Paul and Ginger Clark , all of Philadelphia. These grandparents deserve bragging rights and are so very proud of Todd's accomplishment!
Another grandmother with bragging rights is Sarah McKay whose grandson, Alan Thomas Pickle of Brandon, is a member of the "Encore Group" at Jackson Academy which is composed of varsity members. As a sophomore, he is one of the youngest members of the group. He received a trophy at the awards banquet recently for "the most improved member." Alan Thomas was also a member of "The Show Choir" in junior high. Congratulations on a well deserved honor!
First Baptist Church was the site of a piano and voice recital presented by students of Sue Lewis on a recent Sunday afternoon. Family and friends of the students enjoyed listening to their performances. Sue Lewis, the teacher, made each student feel at ease by giving a brief resume before their performance. The two voice students, Emma Taylor and Kiley Garner did an excellent presentation of their vocal selections.
Piano students included one adult, Gail Cochran, and four beginners, Chloe Fulton, Addy Page, Peyton Dean and Gracie Tucker, who played in their first recital. Other piano students playing were Courtney Williams, Morgan Williams, Ian Edwards, Calvin Prince, Kiley Gardner, Mary Kate Moran, Eli Moran, Emma Taylor, Courtney Smith, Madeline LeBlanc, Zac LeBlanc and Wes LeBlanc. The LeBlanc children come from Union to take lessons from Mrs. Lewis. There were two seniors who played their last recital, Wesley Smith and Rebekah Watson.
Mrs. Lewis was so proud of all of her students and appreciated the large audience who attended on this beautiful Sunday afternoon. All of the performers wore their Sunday clothes and did their best show how much they had learned during the year from a wonderful teacher!
Edna Tinsley can still bait her own hook at at 90 years young. Her granddaughter, Brownwin Tinsley Wiggins of Cleveland, Ohio, visited family in Philadelphia and one activity was a fishing trip. According to Bronwen, Edna" out fished everybody!"
Bronwen is originally from Madison and she and her husband, Newon Wiggins, are MSU grads! He is a physician doing his residency in Cleveland, Ohio. Jo Ann Rounseville and the family were delighted to see their niece who is the daughter of Billy Tinsley of Madison.
Jeffie Jackson, the father of June Nowell and Greg Jackson, is a new resident of The Bee Hive in Philadelphia. He lives in Suite #13 and loves all of the ladies who take such good care of him. He would really enjoy visits from all of his friends at the Bee Hive where he is now making his home. Come and see Jeffie and enjoy a nice visit in his pleasant surroundings.
