PHS Alma Mater Author Kitty Bardwell to Serve as Grand Marshal
Members of the Pascagoula High School Student Council surprised Katherine “Kitty” Harris Bardwell today at the Pascagoula-Gautier School District’s central office, asking her to be the Grand Marshal for the PHS Homecoming Parade on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2019! Bardwell wrote the PHS Alma Mater when she was a junior at Pascagoula High in 1947 which has been sung by thousands of PHS students for generations. As PHS celebrates its 80th birthday (of the second PHS) this year, it was a wonderful tribute to 88-year-old Kitty Bardwell to ask her to serve as Grand Marshal! Mrs. Bardwell, a 1949 PHS grad, is a familiar face at Central Office, subbing for the receptionist, and helping out at registration every year. We love you Miss Kitty! Congratulations! #bethelight
