The First FHU Play of the Season---Twelve Angry Jurors
to Aug 24

The First FHU Play of the Season---Twelve Angry Jurors

On Aug 24th there will be a performance at 2;00 pm also.

FHU Theatre's first play of the season features FHU faculty, staff, and alumni in a powerful retelling of the 1957 film "Twelve Angry Men."

Behind closed doors, tensions run high as a lone juror argues the innocence of a teenager accused of murder. In this provocatively resonant American drama, 12 jurors from all walks of life revisit the evidence, debate the issue of reasonable doubt, and confront each other's personal biases. A story as relevant today as was the 1957 film that inspired it. 


Foreman: Ray Eaton 
Juror 2: Rachel Taylor 
Juror 3: Jill Joiner 
Juror 4: Cliff Thompson 
Juror 5: Morgan Lanza 
Juror 6: Chris Gann 
Juror 7: Rachel Irwin 
Juror 8: Megan Guinn 
Juror 9: Kevin Record 
Juror 10: Annie Pickens 
Juror 11: Caz Williams 
Juror 12: Jordan Deck 
Guard/Clerk: Christa Smith

Stage Manager: Marla Record 

FHU Faculty and Staff may purchase 2 tickets per family unit at $5 each. If you haven't used this benefit before, contact Beth Sanford and she'll set up your FHU Tickets account. 

Tickets are $10 general admission and may be purchased at http://www.fhutickets.com

Class of 1979 40th Reunion
10:30 AM10:30

Class of 1979 40th Reunion

Dear Class of 1979,

It’s hard to imagine 40 YEARS have passed since we walked across that stage in Loyd Auditorium and received our diplomas. Perhaps you have been back many times for the lectures, or Makin’ Music performances (remember our being the eggs in ‘78), or for other occasions. Or, perhaps time and distance have made it hard to return.

Either way, I hope you can come to campus Nov. 8-10 and celebrate with us. Forty years is a milestone anniversary. Come Friday morning, if you can, and let's sit together in chapel, and then eat lunch together. The reunions of Natural Sound and the T-Birds will be a great concert that night.

I have so many special memories: Brigance 107 (no longer with us, but still in our hearts), the frequently painted lion at the back of Gano, the Walkathon of 1976 (I think our class raised the most money), The Lectures and great speakers, the "Cold wave of 1977” when they turned the heat down in all buildings to conserve energy, devotionals and much, much more. Bring your favorite stories and pictures, and pictures of your family, and come be with us for the 40th anniversary of the class of 1979.

Feel free to email me at donwill55@yahoo.com, or Ron, my twin brother (ron@lincolnchurch.org) if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you in Henderson very soon!

Because of Him,

Don Williams
1979 Class President
