How quickly the years have rushed by, since the day you entered our world. And now you are graduating from High School. We can't express enough how proud we are of you and your accomplishments. Today, you enter a new era of life. There will be Challenges, Choices and Decisions. Jim, GOD will be with you every step of the way to guide you. And always remember your prayer. GOD, Grant me the Serenity to accept the Things I cannot change. The Courage to change the Things I can. And the Wisdom to know the Difference. We Love You Very Much, Wyman & Diana Kelcy GO LONGHORNS! # 7

Something interesting happens when you choose to attend a university close to home. You reap all the benefits of going away to college – active campus life, new friends, strong academic programs and more – all without having to leave town. Howard Payne University offers more than 100 majors, minors and pre-professional programs, approximately 30 official student organizations and six men’s and six women’s sports through NCAA Division III athletics, all in the context of a Christ-centered, traditional residential community. There are also opportunities for students of all majors to study abroad and participate in the Guy D. Newman Honors Academy, HPU’s distinctive, nationally recognized honors program. HPU is demonstrating its commitment to local and area students through the Heart of Texas Scholarship program, which offers $60,000 over four years to students from Brown County and surrounding counties. Visit to learn more about going away to college in your own hometown!
