Update on  Dr. Dale Jorgenson — I received this response from Rebekah Jorgenson Stringent, daughter of Dr. Dale Jorgenson, when I asked her how her father and mother were doing— She said that I could share it with the folks on your e-mail list,who have know them for decades as friends and some who were his students at Southeastern Christian College in the ’50’s and 60’s

He was in the hospital including rehab, for five weeks. He has made enough comeback to be back on a walker, and can get up and in small increments, get himself from chair in den, to kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom. Can’t comfortably sit on hard chair very long, or his wheelchair. His back hurts tremendously so, we just are thankful for each tiny move back to mini-mobility. Besides the back issues, he now has prostate and bladder issues, so is straight catheter throughout day. Without help, he can’t bathe and prepare himself, and he leans on Mom, whom u wouldn’t recognize. She weighs about 75…just a teeny tiny thing, bless her heart, tho she still moves like a young person. It belies her overall tiredness, lack of strength. I have a physical therapist, occupational therapist, an RN, and practical nurse coming in for them three or four days weekly. It is all very tricky, since we all still need to work…yet the folks are trying desperately not to leave their home. Thank you so much for prayers and love…it has made all the difference. Sorry this is run together, but I simply can’t see well enough on my tiny phone to utilize correct punctuation, mechanics!

PORTLAND CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION held its annual Alumni Banquet on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at Huber Farm in Southern Indiana. One of the largest classes in the school’s history of twenty-seven was inducted into the Alumni Association.   It was a fun evening of renewing friendships, remembering old tales of days gone by, and enjoying Christian fellowship.   Because the weather outside was threatening as severe weather approached, we were asked to follow our emcee, Earl C. Mullins Jr., out the door into a safer part of the farm.   The building was nearly full of former students, faculty, and friends.   The newly appointed Director of Development, Dan Wilson, presented a challenge to everyone present to stay in touch and help in locating former students.   There were two Distinguished Alumni Awards given:   Danny Taylor, class of 1967 and Steve Hill, class of 1975.   It was an emotional moment for each presentation. Danny accepted the award on his behalf. Aaron Hill and Ashley (Hill) Carpenter accepted the award on behalf of their dad. There was also an Honorary Alumni Recognition presented to Estelle Moody. She accepted her award via video made at her home in Tennessee.   Bro. Earl C. then recognized former students from each year since the school’s beginning. Bro. Joe Blansett was the only one present from his class (1938) and his sister, Billie Searcy was the sole representative of her class (1940). The senior class president, Camrin Kenney, then gave his response on behalf of the graduating seniors thanking the alumni association for the honor bestowed upon them and the lovely banquet.   It was time for the singing of the school song “PCHS” led by Tim Morrow.

            PCHS, in the truth so free,

            School of fond hopes and liberty,

            Gladly we hail thee from afar,

            Grateful to thee, our guiding star!

            School of the humble, true and brave,

            Long may thy banner ever wave!

            Gladly we hail thee from afar,

            Grateful to thee, our guiding star!

            CHORUS

            Banner of beauty, emblem of the free!

            Symbol of duty, love and purity.

The night of remembering, honoring, and celebrating was concluded with a heartfelt benediction by Earl C. Mullins.
