North Harrison


June 13, 2012
North Harrison High School completed commencement ceremonies June 3, awarding 156 diplomas.

Principal Kelly Simpson said the Class of 2012 began kindergarten the same year that he came to North Harrison.

"Thirteen years later, we will be leaving at the same time to embark on other adventures and experiences that life has in store for us," he said.

"The Class of 2012 has some terrific athletes, both boys and girls," Simpson said. "I had the privilege of coaching some of the boys during summer basketball between their freshman and sophomore years, so I got to know several of them very well. Teaching driver's education also allowed me to get to know several of the others.

"The Class of 2012 has some excellent leaders who will give suggestions and provide leadership in school life, activities and athletics."

Rebekah Stephenson
Rebekah, the daughter of Jason and Cherri Stephenson, played volleyball, basketball and tennis and was involved in the Renaissance Leadership team, National Honor Society, 4-H and the Academic Team.

Other honors and awards include Most Valuable Player, two-time Mid-Southern Conference honorable mention, Coach's and Mental Attitude awards in volleyball, Best All-Around Player and All-Mid-Southern Conference in tennis and Scholar Athlete Award.

Simpson said Rebekah is a great girl, dedicated athlete and hard worker and is very school-oriented.

"Rebekah had some bad luck as a senior and hurt her knee, so she lost her senior year in basketball," he said.

Simpson said he taught her in driver's education and enjoyed every minute. Called "Sis," Rebekah helped with all of the track meets this spring and always could be depended on to get things done, he said.

"She was a leader for volleyball and was always positive. Rebekah grew each year, and each year she would stretch her expectations and goals," he said.

Rebekah plans to attend Freed-Hardeman University and major in biochemistry.
