|ALUMNI GATHER FOR HOMECOMING WEEKEND
|Class of 1983 Celebrates 25 Year Reunion|
Homecoming Celebration brought many former students
back to campus. Alumni tours were offered at 2:00pm on Friday, and an
Alumni Dinner was held before
the game on Friday night. Reid Parker, Director of Development and
Alumni Relations, coordinated the event. "It was great seeing all the
alumni back on campus. The participation was fantastic and we look
forward to making this event bigger every year," explained Parker. The
Class of 1983 returned to campus for their
25 year reunion. Class of 1983 graduate, Melanie Chapman Sherman, who
now resides with her husband and children in Eden Prairie, Minnesota,
spent the weekend reconnecting with Lakehill friends. "Lakehill was
such an important part of my life, and I love being able to reconnect
with the people who made the experience so special. It is wonderful
that so many of us could attend the reunion," said Sherman.
NATIONAL WALK TO SCHOOL DAY
|Walkers Unite for Health and Community
Millions of walkers from more than 40 countries around the world have joined together to participate in International
Walk to School Month, the entire month of October dedicated to walking to school. This worldwide event was created to promote the benefits of walking and
to create communities that are safe places for families to walk together. On Wednesday, many families laced up their walking shoes and celebrated the designated Walk to School Day
in the United States. Lily Turner, a fourth grader, enjoyed the beautiful weather as she walked to school with her dog Disco. Heidi Alexander and her children Connor, second grade, and Paige, fifth grade, usually ride their bikes to school. "Walking was a nice change of pace," said Alexander. "With so many cars heading to work and school in the morning, it is difficult to talk when we are on bicycles." Many families responded that walking to school was a great opportunity to do something different and spend time together.
