Providence Christian School celebrated its 25th anniversary with a festive dinner and a memorable program at Lisa and Kenny Troutt’s home on March 29 with more than 400 parents, alumni, and faculty in attendance. Providence Headmaster Dr. Tony Jeffrey opened the evening with a welcome and blessing followed by dinner.
A time of reminiscing, remembering, and honoring was led by John Cox. Cox is the father of five children who all attend Providence. Providence parents, Janie Bell and Doug Chesnut, kept the group laughing with a hilarious skit telling funny anecdotes about the School’s history, while Marlyn Becker and Andy Turner sang an entertaining duet about carpool, which had been performed in years past at Open House. Organizers showed a short video about the School’s history, which honored 13 alumni who are serving in the military. Providence music teachers, Nicole Jordan and John Hendricks, performed “This is a Time to Remember,” accompanied by Dave Leeman.
Providence Board Chairman Tommy McBride closed the program with prayer followed by a hymn medley performed by renowned pianist, Stephen Nielson, a father of two daughters who graduated from Providence. Guests met outside for dessert and coffee while listening to the music of former Providence student Brad Cooper.
A special thank you to the Honorary Chairmen and Pioneering Parents: Laura & Charles Clift, Judy Darby, Carolyn & Bill Foose, Robin & Michael Lewis, Margaret & Keet Lewis, Diana & Bob Reagan, Sara Staley, and Bonnie & Doug Thompson. Thanks to the Event Co-Chairmen: Jennie & Tom Gilchrist, Rebecca & Bobby Lutz, Elizabeth & Charlie Robinson.
