The Ribbon Cutting ceremony was great! I felt like we were at our old pep rally and cheered like no time passed. The Senior students toured us around the new building, although school was in session. Being retired I assumed it was Saturday. It was cute how they asked some of us alumni questions, like,  "So what did YOUR uniforms look like when you went to Sam Houston?"  They were shocked and envious to find out that we didn't wear them, and we girls got to wear Mini skirts - as long as they weren't higher than 6" from the knees up as we knealt on the floor and a ruler was placed next to us to measure the length.

The new building is beautiful and the students and teachers are so proud. I never saw such pride in a school building. They said they felt like they were in college. The Principal said the whole atmosphere has changed and student attitudes improved. One of the Assistant Principals came up to show us a good view outside from the second floor. He said when he taught at the old Sam, he had to close the restrooms because they were in such bad shape. Even the kids bragged about the new restrooms! (They ARE nice because I tried them out!)

They wanted cash for the bricks, keychains, and locker fronts, and of course I had a card. Miss Emma Scott - PE Coach 1965-1990 was there and I tried to get the attention of the girl announcer to have her stand after the Alumni stood at the ceremony.  THere are more items and they can be bought at the school. Just let the Principal know. They are stored in the closet near the reception room. Everything was $10.00, plus there were some yearbooks, but not the older ones.

YES!  I HAD TO SEE THOSE RESTROOMS, TOO.   DURING THE CEREMONIES, IT WAS MENTIONED THAT THE RESTROOMS WERE FABULOUS.   THEY HAVE AUTOMATIC FLUSHING TOILETS, MOTION-ACTIVATED WATER FAUCETS, AND TORNADO HAND DRYERS.   THE STUDENT BAND WAS TERRIFIC, THE TIGERETTES WERE SPECTACULAR IN THEIR GOLD AND BLACK  DANCE COSTUMES, AND CHEERLEADERS ARE SMART-LOOKING AND CONFIDENT.   THERE IS A GRAND STAIRCASE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIRST FLOOR FOR GOING UPSTAIRS AND/OR JUST SITTING DOWN TO VISIT WITH FRIENDS.  THE CONSTRUCTION IS STILL ACTIVE AND I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW BEAUTIFUL IT WILL BE.  THERE ARE 2 PALLETS OF BRICKS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.   PLEASE CONTACT THE SCHOOL FOR PURCHASE.

Thank you Shirley!  Thanksgiving came and went like a flash, and now we are 3 weeks out from Christmas.   It sure didn't come around this fast when i was a kid.  Once the wrapped presents started showing up under the tree, the month of December, was as slow as molasses! lol  Wishing all, a Very Merry Christmas!

Ruben Garza (1967)

Sorry to hear of Ara Roe's passing. He was a great person. Didn't know him at Sam, but worked with him at HPD for several years. He always had a smile on his face and always had a joke. He played in a band made up of HPD Officers and they played quite well. Didn't hear much from him after he left HPD for another career path. May he rest in peace and my and my family express our condolences to his family. Our prayers our with you.
