PHS Weekly Update


And just like that, the 2022-2023 school year has come and gone. It was a lovely week filled with celebrations, accolades, and heartfelt goodbyes. Congratulations to Harvester Golf Sophomore Sawyer Burleson on finishing 11th out of 72 golfers at the State Golf Tournament Tuesday! That’s an amazing accomplishment and we are so proud of his effort. Lady Harvester Softball landed a plethora of players on All-District Teams. Congratulations to Hallie Hawthorne (District Utility Player of the Year), McKinley Daniels (1st Team All-District), Maecie Hawthorne (1st Team All-District), Kynleigh Kirby (1st Team All-District), Carsyn Hunt (2nd Team All-District), Reagan Dyer (2nd Team All-District), Brianna Cloud (2nd Team All-District), and Briley Daniels (Honorable Mention All-District). We’re so proud of these ladies for their dedication and accomplishments as a team this season. Sunday, our seniors participated in their annual Vespers service at First Baptist Church. Tuesday, we hosted a retirement reception for some amazing educators. We will miss Kathy Gomez, Connie Nicklas, and Sarah Corse dearly and are so appreciative of their service, devotion, and love to our students over their awesome careers. We wish them a happy retirement! Tuesday evening our DECA students and Harvester Baseball held their banquets. These groups always do such an amazing job of representing our campus and we enjoyed honoring their accomplishments. Saturday was a wonderful morning at graduation. We must be living right, because it was not too hot and we were able to dodge the weather and get the ceremony completed. I want to wish out graduating class the best of luck and I can’t wait to see the great things they will accomplish in the future.

I can’t believe my first year as principal has concluded. I’m so thankful for this staff, who regardless of circumstances, daily arrive to serve kids. I’m thankful for our students, who come from all walks of life and blend into the beautiful student body that we get to be around. I’m thankful for this community, who chooses to support our kids and our work (this is not the norm). This is not goodbye, but rather a see you later. Enjoy your summer and we will start this communication up again in the fall to celebrate the next wave of Harvester accomplishments. It’s a great day to be a Harvester!
