It’s almost here. Our favorite time of year – fall! Soon the leaves will be changing and we can sit outside for more than five minutes without worrying about heat stroke. The only thing more inviting than cooler temps, is all the events going on in Wilson County during September and October.
By now, you have all heard about Sherry’s Run. While you may be aware of the race and ‘Painting the Town Green’, you might not know the entire story behind the culmination of this fantastic event. You can read all about it on page 52. The run is named for Sharon “Sherry” Patterson Whitaker. Whitaker was diagnosed with and lost her battle with colon cancer in 2004. A few of her friends and family members wanted everyone else to know the person they loved and wanted to bring awareness to this deadly disease. While Sherry lost her battle with cancer, her spirit lives on today with this run. If you haven’t already registered, better hurry! You won’t want to miss it.
Construction on the new Lebanon High School is well underway. If that has any of you LHS graduates feeling a little melancholy, there’s something you can do that might make you feel better. The Lebanon High School Alumni Association is selling individual
bricks. A personalized brick inscribed with your name or that of a relative or friend who graduated from Lebanon High School will become a permanent fixture in the rotunda walls of the new school building. Money from this project will also help establish a Lebanon High School Endowment Scholarship fund for future LHS graduates each school year. For more information on how to get your brick, read the story on page 26.
