This year, it all came full circle for Horn parent Jennifer Cannon. Thirty-four years ago, she (then Jennifer Jones) started at Horn Elementary as a kindergartener. Her beloved teacher, Ms. Evelyn Gates, was in her first year of teaching at the time. Thirty-four years later, Jennifer’s youngest son, James Cannon, has had Ms. Gates as his first-grade teacher – and Jennifer has been the room parent. In more full-circle connections, Jennifer’s oldest son, Brooks, has had Ms. Tiffany Thorn for fourth grade this year. Jennifer and Tiffany have known each other since they were kindergarteners; they both attended Horn, Pershing Middle School, and Bellaire High School. Jennifer has also been the room parent for Ms. Thorn. And the Horn family connection goes back even further – Jennifer’s dad, Bill Jones, also attended the elementary school. Bill played football for Horn in fifth grade (when the school offered a football program). At the time, they were known as the Horn Frogs. Bill attended Horn, Pershing, and Bellaire. Recently, these Horn community members reunited at the school. Pictured are (from left) Bill Jones, Tiffany Thorn, Brooks Cannon, James Cannon, Evelyn Gates, and Jennifer (Jones) Cannon.
