Concert To Remember


Please join us for a ‘Concert To Remember’. On Friday night, June 22, 2018, at 6:00 PM, our class will convene, as host, with all who want to come at the West Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church to witness a musical performance by a world-class and premier classical artist, Dr. Ronald High (see profile below). Dr, High, a Hebert High School graduate in 1968, has graciously agreed to not only perform for our class but also for anyone in the general public who would like to attend. The concert will be followed immediately by a reception in the Fellowship Hall of West Tabernacle. Come out at no charge and meet Dr. High, enjoy great music, and fellowship with classmates of 1968. The proceeds from the sponsors of this concert will be donated to the Hebert High School Mass Reunion Scholarship Fund. We look forward to seeing you there.

Ronald H. High, a native of Marshall, Texas, is a 1968 cum laude graduate of Hebert High School. He received an undergraduate degree in music with honors from the University of North Texas and obtained the Master’s degree in voice from Arizona State University and the doctorate degree in voice from the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign.
