I HAD A RECENT VISIT WITH THE HLHS PRINCIPAL, ANDY ORR. DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER HE VIEWED OUR HORN LAKE EAGLE NEWS WEBSITE AND ASKED IF HE COULD LINK IT TO THE SCHOOL'S WEBSITE, WHICH HE CAN, AND WILL DO, SHORTLY. HE LOVES HIS ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES THERE...HAS A REAL PASSION FOR THE SCHOOL....
HE THEN TOLD ME ABOUT  HORN LAKE TV  WHICH IS BASICALLY A TV STATION WITHIN THE SCHOOL,  RUN BY STUDENTS,  AND, OF COURSE,  MONITORED BY THE ADMINISTRATION (FOR THOSE OF US IN THE CLASS OF '58, CAN YOU IMAGINE A VIDEO CAMERA IN THE HANDS OF....SAY....BOBBY GILBERT WHERE HE COULD HAVE CHANNELED ALL OF HIS CREATIVITY?)....ANYWAY, THEY 'BROADCAST' THEIR PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL.....YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT (AND NOT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT) THAT IT REVEALS THE HIGH QUALITY OF STUDENTS WHICH STILL WALK THE HALLS OF OUR GREAT SCHOOL!......('CLICK' ON THE LINK BELOW AND 'CLICK' THE 'RETURN ARROW' IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER TO GET BACK TO THIS WEBSITE.)

A LOT OF FOLKS ENJOY THE 'YEARBOOKS' PAGE...
THE  'YEARBOOKS'  BUTTON WILL TAKE YOU TO A PAGE WHERE YOU WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO SELECT A 'MAROON MIRAGE' TO VIEW.....BEGINNING WITH THE YEAR 1938 AND CONTINUING THROUGH 1964 (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW WWII YEARS)... THE PAGES WILL OPEN TO YOU AS IF YOU WERE FLIPPING THROUGH THE ANNUAL... PLEASE LET THIS 'WEB GUY' KNOW WHAT YOU THINK....AND, ABOVE ALL, WHEN YOU SEE  MELVIN WILSON,  PLEASE GIVE HIM YOUR THANKS FOR THE TEDIOUS WORK OF TAKING ALL THE PICTURES OF THE INDIVIDUAL PAGES.....
EACH YEARBOOK MIGHT TAKE A SHORT WHILE TO DOWNLOAD AND THE TIME NEEDED WILL BE BASED ON THE BANDWIDTH/SPEED OF YOUR INTERNET SERVICE......SO BE PATIENT....IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT!!
ALSO..FYI...THE PAGES CHANGE EVERY 7 SECONDS....YOU CAN GO TO A FULL-PAGE SCREEN (WHICH HELPS WHEN TRYING TO READ SCRIPT) BY USING THE FUNNY LOOKING 4 CORNER THINGGY IN THE LOWER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE PLAYER...TO GET BACK TO REGULAR SCREEN SIZE, USE THE 'ESC' BUTTON ON THE KEYBOARD...
