The popular High Point man spoke at the annual Brevard Jaycees Distinguished Service Awards banquet Friday night at Brevard College, attended by 126 persons. “He did not say be happy all the time. You cannot be happy all the time,” Dr. Haggai said. If people were happy all the time, there would not be the great music, poetry and art that was born of despair, he said. In the face of terminal illness of serious family problems, “There is a way to not lose your motivation,” Dr. Haggai said. “Paul tells you how. When he gives you a toy, he gives you the batteries and all the screws. ‘In everything give thanks. This is the will of God through Christ Jesus.’ “You cannot be thankful and depressed at the same time,” he said.

The 899 students at the Middle School and the 694 elementary school pupils had been scheduled to report to their old institutions Monday morning and would have been transferred to the new facilities during the day, school officials said.
