The 2018 Jefferson High School Senior Girls were honored by the Jessie Allen Wise Garden Club with a tea and luncheon, on Wednesday, March 27, 2018 at the Excelsior House Hotel. This is an event that is held annually and has been an established tradition for many years by the Garden Club.
The girls were welcomed by Senior Girls Tea Committee Chair Mrs. Karen Gleason.
Mrs. Laura Omer presented a short program of her career in the Navy as a nurse rising to the rank of captain. Mrs. Omer brought a quilt that was made by her family members presented to her upon retirement. The quilt was adorned with all parts of the world where Mrs. Omer had been stationed throughout her thirty years of service. Mrs. Omer’s presentation was a wonderful tribute for the girls in how they too can go forth and be successful in life.
Father David Puckett, gave a blessing and prayer for the tea which was held in the Excelsior House Ballroom. The event concluded with each girl receiving a keepsake souvenir and photos.
