Adair County High School seniors went on the traditional walk through tour of each school dressed in their caps and gowns starting at 9:30amCT May 22, 2018. The tour was called by one teacher, "the best thing we ever did for school spirit." Seniors first walked the ACHS halls, lined with juniors, sophomores and freshmen then through each school in turn, ACPC, ACES and ACMS, revisiting the grades and teachers they'd worked with through their 12-year careers.

The cheers and shouts and high fives and good wishes in those hallways made the seniors feel like rock stars and filled hearts with happiness.

Carol Perkins: Angel saves heroine from shower disaster

Bridal shower, that is. When Carol had assumed a name for the bride-to-be, and panic set in during the event. Click on headline to read how miracle saved the day
Next previous Carol Perkins column: The Lizard Whistle Story

By Carol Perkins

I knew the groom-to-be, but I didn't know his fiance very well. I thought her name was Missy. Missy sounded familiar, so that is the name I put on the card. To Paul and Missy.

The crowd had gathered for the bridal shower and the smiling couple began opening their long line of gifts. They started at the far end of the table, opposite of where I had placed mine. For some reason, as I watched them open each one, I second-guessed myself about the name I had written on the card. Why had I put a name in the first place? What if her name wasn't Missy? I think that was his last girlfriend's name. What if I have confused them?
