Eugene Knox (1972)

I snagged this off Facebook.  I know not everyone is on there.  Plus, I got it off the Burbank Jr. High page, and i realize there is really only a one in three chance, SHHS kids attended there.  lol   Wasn't 1957 one of the very first years SHHS was opened on Irvington?...    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbRuDOkT2PY&feature=share

Barbra Genie Carroll (Smith) (1962)

I think it was 1956.


08/25/19 09:00 AM #4453    

 

Eugene Knox (1972)

yeah Barbra, I believe you are correct.  I looked it up and it reads new location (9400 Irvington) 1955, so school year '55/'56.   The first yearbook on IrvingtonBlvd you can view on classmates.com is the '58 one.

Samuel Baker  SHHS Class of 1968 passed away on August 18, 2019. He leaves his wife Susan and one daughter. He served as a Houston Police Officer and retired after 28 years in 2004. He attended Fonville Jr. High. He was a good friend. RIP Sammie.

Judith Dunson (Satterwhite-Hilliard) (1961)

Pretty sure it was 1956.  My sister (Doris Ann Dunson) was to be a senior that year and was given the choice to stay at Reagan or graduate at Sam - she (of course) chose Reagan. I and my brother, Bill Dunson, graduated at Sam Houston.  I played a trumpet in the drum & bugle corps and have great memories of that time of my life.  We lived on E. Rogers Street (1 block south of Tidwell, 1 block west of Airline).  Our parents sold our home and moved north to 1960 in the mid-70's.  THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS VIDEO.  WOW - BLAST FROM THE PAST.

Eugene Knox (1972)

Judith,  thanks for that info!  You've answered a question that i was wondering,  where the northsiders went, before SHHS opened in 55/56.  In my old hood off Irvington and the loop, the older kids went to Jeff Davis.  SHHS, was then Central High School, downtown until '55.  So it makes perfect sense that your sis went to Reagan.  btw...my street, one block outside of the loop, is exactly the same distance to Jeff Davis, or Sam Houston.  Also, i read where you grew up, and i have good friends that grew up off Veenstra, just opposite E.Rogers.  So happens, i am having a lucheon with two of them next month on my next trip down.

Rick Faircloth (1966)

I had a cousin A.R.Ginn who  was in the first class at the new SHHS that opened in 1955.  The boundary line between  SHHS and Davis was crosstimbers. As he lived outside theboundary line they allowed any student currentlt at jeff Davis to attend the new SHHS. However, later his younger brother  by 4 years wanted to start SHHS  like his older brother. He tried to go to SHHS becasue his grandmother lived 2 blocks inside the boundary line so he used her address. He only lasted about 1 week when they found  out  and he had to transfer to Jeff Davis.

I'm not sure if it was posted before, but I wanted to let our class of '71 know that Vanessa Bennett passed away July 18. She lived in Longview, TX. She will be dearly missed. She was a SHHS Houstonette. I am posting her obituary.

Eugene, #4461: Thanks for sharing the link to the parade. I was 4 at that time so I don't thnk I was at the parade. Although we went to a lot of the parades held downtown. It was neat to see all the old cars on the street. The uniforms stayed about the same over the years. I loved that they had a tank in the parade.

Ruben #4454: Sorry for the loss of your firend Samuel Baker ~ R.I.P. Sam

Diane # 4468: Thanks for letting us know about Vanessa Bennett ~ I din't rememberit being on here. R.I.P. Vanessa

Hi Ruben, 

You may not remember me but I was in elementary school with Sammy Baker. I remember he was always smiling ! He seemed like a very happy little guy.  I guess that is what got him through 28 years in the force. Such special bonds were made in our young lives that it is always good to know when one of us has our homegoing. You feel something even if you haven’t seen  them in a while. I hope that means there is still some live in our hearts. Thank you for that, Jesus. I appreciate your letting us know. Can pray for his family. 

Because of Grace, 

Carole Carson

Anyone who missed the school being demolished or seeing it before demolision can get on oxblue sam houston and click on the calendar in the upper left corner. Set it at about April 1 and you can see it all in one piece. For awhile you could click on timelapse and it would run through in fast-motion the building of the new school, to the tearing down the old. Looks like they're working on the field house and athletic field. Gonna look nice.

I had three messages this morning asking if we were going to postpone or cancel our 50th high school reunion which begins tonight at the Meet and Greet at the hotel. There was concern that the venues would not be accessible due to water on the roadways. I have been in contact with the hotel and they have assured me that the hotel is completely accessible. There is still water that has accumulated on the roadways in the area, but with no rain overnight the water has gone down considerably and should not pose a problem for the Meet and Greet this evening. Further, Denise was in contact yesterday with the venue where the reunion will be held tomorrow evening and it, too, was accessible.  With that said, however, please exercise caution and if you do encounter high water, please turn around. See you this evening at 7 pm.

Michial Lawrence (1969)

I don't know how many people know this.  There is a very deep dip in the road from the hotel to the reunion venue.  If there is any high water that area could very wewll be many feet under water.  To get from the hotel to the reunion venue, you would have to drive north on I45 to a cross street (maybe even as far as 1960) then down on 59 to get to the reunion.  Then reverse the course to get back to the hotel.  I forone do not wish to try and traverse this flooding and other high water.  Therefore I will sit this reunion out.  After all we have had nearly a week of daily rain, some of it extremely heavy.  Perhaps I will be able to see you folks at the next reunion, if we have any more.  This reunion should have been rescheduled due to the heavy rains and street flooding.  I am sorry that I will miss seeing some of my high school friends.
