The Thanksgiving program
was presented by the Student
Council on November 20, 1962
in the school library. The stu
dents participating on the pro.
gram were Beverly Hinton,
Roosevelt Maske, Claude May-
field, Nathaniel Boykins, and
members of the Choral Ensem
ble, featuring Wessie Cunning
ham as soloist. Mr. William
Lindsay also favored us with
a vocal rendition.
The speaker for the occasion
was Reverend Charlie Hart, a
graduate of Carver College who
is now majoring in religious
education at Johnson C. Smith
University. Currently, Rev. Hart
is serving as minister of the
Friday Memorial Baptist Church
which he organized.
Using the subject, “Pray Con
tinually and Give Thanks,” Rev.
Hart admonished us to pray not
only for things that we want,
but pray for tbe things that we
already have; this, in turn,
means prayer by giving thanks.
As we approach the Thanksgiv
ing Season, this should be pond
ered in our hearts. For the real
purpose of Thanksgiving is to
be thankful for what we have.
Thus I say to you, “Pray con
tinually and give thanks.”
