A Memory Book of Nellie Mae Pasal
Palacios High School
1922 - 1925
The baccalaureate services for the high school class of '25 were
held in the high school auditorium Sunday night. Palacios citizens
are noted for the community interest in all that pertains to things
educational and as usual at commencement week activities, there were
no vacant chairs in the big auditorium.
There was an expectant hush and a quickening of the pulse as the
manly boys and lovely girls, 23 in all, marched to their places. The
spirited congregational singing and well rendered anthems were a
fitting prelude to the sincere and impressive sermon by the Rev. G.
F. Gillespie, who used for his text, "Friend, go up higher." He
spoke of the enduring friendship he has for the boys and girls of
the class and his great desire is that they may "Go up higher." To
attain this priceless gift he counseled them to strive for vision,
excellence and love.
The program of the evening's service was as follows:
Hymn, "Come Thou Almighty King" - Congregation
Invocation - Reverend Doak
Anthem, "Now the Day is Over"
Scripture Reading - Reverend Doak
Anthem, "Hark, Hark My Soul"
Sermon - Reverend Gillespie
Hymn - "Holy, Holy, Holy" - Congregation
Benediction - Reverend Doak
