A Community Baccalaureate Service was held at 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 15 at Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond High School. A student baccalaureate committee along with the Arthur Ministerial Association helped to plan and organize the service.
Stephen McClarey, ALAH choir director, provided the music for both the processional and recessional and accompanied senior Mackenzie Wright as she sang, “How Beautiful.” Members of the student committee provided prayers and read scripture and also introduced the speaker, Carolyn Yoder, who is pastor at the Vineyard Church in Sullivan. Carolyn’s message was, “Can I REALLY Make a Difference?” And of course she reassured the graduating seniors that indeed they do, can and will make a difference in this world.
Other music was provided by Sisters & Company. The committee would like to thank Pastor Carolyn and all the musicians for being a part of the service.
The committee would also like to thank Mr. McClarey and the high school administration, custodians and staff at ALAH.
