Pomp and Circumstance


FocusTogether, we've had an amazing year.  From HLG's record enrollment this past fall to the year-long celebration of our 150th anniversary, it’s been a year that will be forever embossed in our memories.  As we watch our 2009 graduates prepare for commencement, we see clearly their future while remembering our shared past as well.  During those 150 years, we have not only traveled through trials and tribulations, but we’ve also been greatly blessed with many successes and celebrations.  Through the years, you have made these journeys with us; supporting us with your prayers, time, and gifts.  We would not be where we are today without each and every one of you playing a role in our history and helping to shape our future.   

We hope you are enjoying the Trojan Talk e-newsletter—its new look, the campus news, and event calendar.  If you have any suggestions as to how we can better serve you through the e-newsletter, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  No matter how hi-tech we may become, we still enjoy your personal visit, phone call, card, or a letter in the mail.  We encourage you to use whatever means you are most comfortable with to keep in touch with HLG!

Summer vacation plans are upon us.  If Hannibal is a consideration, we hope you will stop by our beautiful campus for a visit!
