The history department took a second to take this departmental picture just before HCHS 2009 commencement.
Kate Kreager, my top student in AP European history and this year’s valedictorian, delivered an excellent speech to her peers. Kate, who will attend the University of Texas Phase II honors program in the fall, is set to study history. She will probably return and take my job. That gives me four years to enter the national market.
Dr. David Patterson, the senior minister at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, served as the keynote speaker; he also serves on the board of trustees at HCHS; he did an excellent job challenging the class of 2009 to find their mission — the one Christ has set out for them.
Katrina Ong, the class of 2009 class president and one of the most interesting students I have taught, will study at Vanderbilt University in the fall; I cannot count the number of excellent conversations I have had with Ong.
Dr. Steve Livingston, the current Head of School, presenting his opening remarks to the faculty and class of 2009.
Jamie Ferguson, Rachel Gracy, and ashley Giffen after commencement. They are screaming my name. It is Edward, ladies — not Eddie.
