I Love America :: 1976 Bicentennial Celebration

I think I've already posted several pics from this old, 1976 Bicentennial special edition of the Sheridan Headlight, and I've got more to come.  The photo & article below features a special choir performance by First Baptist Church's Youth Choir.  There were only a few names listed in the article, but perhaps taking a closer look at the image below (click to enlarge) might allow you to find some folks you know.  One of the soloists mentioned in the write-up is Phil Tygart, father of 88 grad, Bryan Tygart.

"WE LOVE AMERICA," says the First Baptist Church youth choir, who will be presenting the premier of their Bicentennial musical, "I Love America," tonight at McKenzie Hall.  They are the second feature of a special Bicentennial program beginning with the Arkansas Arts Center's production of "By George" at 8 p.m.

I was also surprised to find someone in this photo that I know very well - my friend, pastor & fellow colleague, Lance Quinn.  Lance attended SHS his sophomore year and part of his junior year before moving away.  We were recently sharing his vague & dusty Sheridan memories and he mentioned singing in the FBC choir.  I, of course, knew I had this newspaper write-up at home and we both wondered if we might find him in this very picture.  And... whah-lah:
