May 20, 2011

Last Thursday night forty-nine seniors received their diplomas from Magnolia Heights. All forty-nine seniors in the class received a college or university scholarship. The total for all scholarship recipients was over $3 million. Among the forty-nine seniors were two National Merit Finalist and thirteen Mississippi Eminent scholars.

Commencement speaker Samuel Hong, a 2007 Magnolia Heights graduate and a 2010 graduate of Emory University challenged the students and all in attendance with an inspiring address of how God’s grace is always sufficient and how it has impacted his life as he prepares for Emory Medical School and continues his research into defeating Cancer. Sam’s address to the Class of 2011 can be found by clicking this link. We were also honored to have Sam’s parents here from South Korea to hear his address.

What an evening for Magnolia Heights – alumni making a difference in the world and a brand new class ready to begin their quest to be the best they can be. Thank you Sam and good luck Class of 2011!
