90th Homecoming Celebration a Huge Success

Thursday, September 01, 2016

The 90th Homecoming celebration at Oak Hills held August 26th-28th was a tremendous success; a unique blend of rich history, quality music, fabulous food, poignant testimonies, and just plain frivolity,with almost 200 alumni, staff, faculty and students participating over the course of the weekend, all in the midst of a major construction project -the new Robert H. Thompson Memorial Hall dormitory. Attendance this year was enhanced by the intentional timing of the event to allow current students and alumni to mingle and share perspectives from the past, as well as the present. Sally Cummings Roddy, 90 year old daughter of founding father W.S. Cummings, sent the following greeting, "Enjoy the weekend of celebration as you step into your future! My parents, W.S. and Julia, and I will be with you in spirit." And to quote alumna Paula Eveland, "Thank you for hosting the 90th Anniversary Reunion....I appreciate all of the hard work that was put in by the staff to make this a meaningful event...." We, in turn, would like to thank everyone who attended the festivities and contributed to the celebratory atmosphere that continues to permeate our campus. Praise God for 90 continuous years of Oak Hills Fellowship and Christian College's ministries, outreach and education!
