HOMECOMING '9? BTC SUCCESS
Homecoming '92 proved to be a fun-filled week full of varied activities. Cultural
events of the week included syndicated columnist Bill Murchison as guest lecturer in
the first "Cecil Vernon Robertson Lecture Series" and Panola College's own Judge Ben
Z. Grant’s play "From Hardscrabble" being produced by the Panola College Theater
Department. Mr. Murchison spoke to a full house on Wednesday and Judge Grant s
play was a sell-out on Thursday and Friday evenings. Students at Panola College
were treated to a formal dance on Tuesday, January 28, and current and former
students joined forces for a rousing "Pep Rally on the Square" on Saturday.
Saturday afternoon and Saturday night were a blur of receptions, tours of the
campus, and other activities such as the Homecoming dinner. The Fillies and Pomes
games were enjoyed by a packed gymnasium of Panola College fans. Between games
the Homecoming Court was presented. Named Homecoming Queen and King were
Melissa Phillips from Jefferson and Charles Arnold from New Diana. The winners of
the poster contest were also named during the ceremony.
Homecoming '92 brought together friends and groups who had not been together
in years. Plans are underway for Homecoming in February '93. We hope to see you at
our next Homecoming.
