Patrick Henry College
A few weeks ago, a select group of students stood by the entrance to morning chapel at Patrick Henry College, handing out slips of paper to each classmate who entered. On these slips, explained student Homecoming committee chair Stephen Williams, they would vote for a decade to represent their class—1920s, 1950s, 1970s, or 1980s. And so began the wind-up to this week’s upcoming festivities as PHC celebrates its tenth-year anniversary this fall.
“Homecoming is always a time for students to reunite with alumni,” says Williams, “but this year it is also our chance to celebrate the many ways God has blessed our College over the last ten years.”
Student activities begin Wednesday evening with a class banner competition and continue through Thursday evening’s Capture the Flag game, School Spirit Day on Friday, and Homecoming itself on Saturday. Alumni join the fun on Friday morning with a special Alumni Chapel delivered by John Curry (Government, ’09). Two Sentinels soccer home games, a concert from indie music artist Andy Zipf, and a yearly business meeting and luncheon for the PHC Alumni Association round out the weekend.
