Hope you were able to get on Oxblue site with the link posted. it is neat to go in and check out what they are doing, Plus with me not being in Houston anymore I can click on it and check the weather out. My sister Shirley (class of 70 with you) lives near the school ~ too bad i can't see her house from it. There are 2 pictures of her on Tidwell driving past the school.

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?...

08/24/19 07:17 PM #4452    

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 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.  

08/26/19 08:16 AM #4456    


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. 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.

Diane Grayson (Goloby) (1971)

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.

Dolores Loocke (Ross) (1959)

Sam Houston opened midterm 1956. I entered in High 9th and graduated in June 1959. A R Ginn was in my class. Nice guy.

Judy Maxwell (1971)

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
