We want to wish all of our King’s Alumni a Happy New Year! May 2020 be a year of blessing and encouragement to you and your loved ones. We hope you will take a minute to read this New Years prayer written by Billy Graham:
Our Father and our God, as we stand at the beginning of this new year we confess our need of Your presence and Your guidance as we face the future.
We each have our hopes and expectations for the year that is ahead of us—but You alone know what it holds for us, and only You can give us the strength and the wisdom we will need to meet its challenges. So help us to humbly put our hands into Your hand, and to trust You and to seek Your will for our lives during this coming year. In the midst of life’s uncertainties in the days ahead, assure us of the certainty of Your unchanging love. In the midst of life’s inevitable disappointments and heartaches, help us to turn to You for the stability and comfort we will need. In the midst of life’s temptations and the pull of our stubborn self-will, help us not to lose our way but to have the courage to do what is right in Your sight, regardless of the cost.
And in the midst of our daily preoccupations and pursuits, open our eyes to the sorrows and injustices of our hurting world, and help us to respond with compassion and sacrifice to those who are friendless and in need. May our constant prayer be that of the ancient Psalmist: “Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end” (Psalm 119:33). Billy Graham, 2008
Happy Birthday, Nancy!
Happy 80th birthday to our beloved King’s High School Secretary, Registrar and “knower of all things,” Nancy White. Nancy is in her 40th year as a King’s employee and remarkably she remembers almost all the students who have come in and gone out of King’s High School. Thank you, Nancy, for the impact you have had on all of our lives. We are forever grateful.
Thanks to all the alums who helped us celebrate Nancy during the homecoming festivities.
Basketball Tourney Update
This year’s tournament boasted five teams: Hoff’s Protégés, Shazaam, the Early Favorites and two teams from the classes of 16-19. Congratulations to Javan Fetherston who won the $100 visa gift card for his unbelievable 3-point shooting and to winners of the tourney for the 5th year in a row Hoff’s Protégés.
The alumni basketball tournament is always a special and unique reunion. There is nothing better then doing something you love, in a place that brings back good memories, with guys who you have not seen in months or even years, to lift the soul.
“The 2009 class Reunion was great! We had roughly 35 alumni and/or significant others in attendance at Flatstick Pub. The evening was pretty casual and while most attendees had the option of playing mini-golf or shuffleboard, mostly everyone stuck around to network and reminisce on the last 10 years since graduating King’s. Can’t wait until the next one!” -Jean Blatchford
