Lamar School honors former student with emotional homecoming

WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – It was a welcome home that Matthew Millsaps won’t soon forget, as students and faculty at Lamar School showed how much they have missed him Friday morning.

Matthew has spent the last several months battling leukemia at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis. Friday, his mother brought him by Lamar, where friends and supporters released dozens of balloons in his honor, as he watched from the car.

He is now a sophomore at David Crockett High School, but the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Lamar made sure he hasn’t been forgotten by organizing the balloon release.
