Annual JCHS Baccalaureate Service to be held May 20th

The Jenkins County Baccalaureate Committee and Millen Make-a-Difference is pleased to announce that the Baccalaureate Service for the Jenkins County High School Class of 2018 will be held 4 p.m. Sunday, May 20, at the JCHS gymnatorium. All graduates are asked to arrive at 3:30 p.m. with their caps and gowns.

The speaker for the service will be the Rev. Robert Lee Johnson, pastor of Hurricane Branch Baptist Church, Millen.

Members of the community are invited to attend in support of the graduating class. Baccalaureate services are held for graduating classes from high schools and colleges around the world and have a significant history in this nation. The Baccalaureate service has been one piece of the graduation “rite of passage” since the 15th Century.

Baccalaureate is a beginning. It is the sending forth of the graduate with the blessing of the community. Baccalaureate is a moral challenge. The service is meant to charge the graduates to forge their way into the future by advancing a life of learning, wisdom, morality and finding happiness.

Please support the graduates by attending.
