A tradition stretching over eight decades was continued Tuesday afternoon as the annual Senior Girls Tea was held.
Originally started by the 21st Century Club early in the 20th Century, the tea recognizes the HHS girls who will be receiving their diplomas. The tea is held now at the First United Methodist Church with members of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority preparing a light luncheon. At each of the tables for the senior girls are specially wrapped commemorative teacups and saucers to mark the occasion.
This year the guest speaker was 2000 HHS graduate Melissa Williams. She told the girls this is the time, “to get to know yourself.” She encouraged them to leave their fears behind them and get involved.
“There are so many people in the world and you can learn so much from people who are different than yourself.”
