Indianola Lodge No. 450 F & A M recently held a reception for Hayden Grambling and his parents, Edgar and Rebecca, to present the Lodge's first graduating senior scholarship. The brethren of T. J. Catchings Lodge No. 394 in Inverness, Sunflower County's oldest Masonic Lodge, also awarded Hayden a matching scholarship. Hayden will attend Belhaven College this fall to pursue degrees in engineering and mathematics.
The world's oldest and largest fraternity, Masonry's body of knowledge and system of ethics is based on the belief that each man has a responsibly to improve himself while being devoted to his faith, his family, and his country. Freemasonry enhances and strengthens the character of the individual man by providing opportunities for fellowship, charity, education and leadership based on the three ancient Masonic tenets: Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. Masonic charity and relief are evidenced by nearly $3 million given daily to national and local charities.
