A crowd of well-wishers, family and friends gather at the Expo Center Sunday, May 23, as graduates from Refugio and Woodsboro High School listen intently to those who led the service at this year’s RHS/WHS joint baccalaureate service.

RHS students Kenny Boyer, Kyle Steele and Brittani Wade all take part in the program.

Kenny led the opening prayer, Kyle read from Proverbs 3:5-6, and Brittani sang a special selection entitled, “Who Am I.”

Refugio County Judge Rene Mascorro delivered the charge to the graduates, telling them not to be afraid of failure, to broaden their understanding through continued education, and to give back to the society of mankind more than they receive. The Judge concluded his timely remarks by encouraging all present to keep God first in their lives and to follow His will in all they do.

WISD Administrative Assistant Karyn Borden followed the judge with a special prayer for the graduates and their family members.

The Rev. John Alsbrooks, pastor of the First United Methodist Church of Refugio, was the featured speaker for the evening. Speaking from the passage of Scripture read by Kyle Steele, Proverbs 3:5-6, Reverend Alsbrooks strongly emphasized the important of our looking forward to God for help, strength and guidance in living our lives, and to seek direction from the Holy Scriptures in determining the will of God for our lives.

“The communities of Refugio and Woodsboro are blessed to have some of the brightest and most talented young men and ladies in all of South Texas as a part of this year’s 2010 graduating class,” Alsbrooks said. “We wish them God’s best and pray their life endeavors will bring them much joy and personal happiness.”
