News from the
The senior class of Fleming observed their “Skip Day” on April 25. We first visited the Jenkins High School. This visit was enjoyed immensely by all of us. We appreciate very much the kind hospitality which was extended to us. We also received a very hearty welcome at Stuart Robinson School. After visiting the schools, we then had a nice picnic.
On Tuesday of last week, the Rev. O’Ray Weeks, who was at that time holding a revival meeting at the Baptist church in Fleming, visited our school. He brought with him his junior choir, which entertained us with some beautiful choruses. Bro. Weeks also brought us a wonderful devotional talk.
Miss Lucille Hale directed a section of the freshman class in presenting a play for chapel program last Friday. It was a one-act play entitled “Sit Down to Supper” and was very entertaining, indeed.
The juniors gave their annual play, “Tempest and Sunshine” May 1, which was very highly complimented. The class and its sponsor, Mr. Hall, wish to thank each and every one for their interest and cooperation in attending the play.
