August 21, 2012

FORSAN — A new year of school is fast approaching and a nine-year tradition continues Friday in the Forsan Jr./Sr. High School cafeteria.

Forsan Superintendent Randy Johnson is extending an invitation to all residents of Howard County to attend the Forsan Superintendent's Prayer Breakfast, a tradition started when Johnson took over the head position.

“School has a lot of opportunity for crisis problems and conflict and I truly believe in the power of prayer,” Johnson said. “I think the start of a new year is a great time to join in prayer and ask for guidance.”
