Salutatorian was Adrianna Morehead. Congratulation to these young ladies for their hard work throughout their school years and the best to them in high school.
Last week I was able to go to the school in the mornings to watch the students participate in their kickball games and field Day. These youngsters really had a great time and it was fun watching them. Now they are having their summer break.
The annual Todd Family Reunion was held Saturday, May 26 at the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center with approximately 80 relatives and friends in attendance from all parts of Texas and Louisiana. This year special recognition was held to honor those family members who served in our military and also for family members who have served in our education system.
According to J.T. Todd, the oldest living member of Mr. and Mrs. Roger Todd children, the Todd reunion began in 1930 with a couple of families present and each year grew from that beginning. What a great tradition for a family to have.
