I have very fond memories from BRHS when Mr. Tinney was our principal. He was a fair, encouraging leader. Prayers for your entire family during this difficult time.

We grew up across the road from the Tinney's in Bynum. Miss Peggy was my science teacher at Oxford High. Our prayers are with you all in this time.
