Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Senior Class Officers are Lester Boydstun, president;
Carolyn Jones, vice-president; Jerrie Le
Mond, secretary; and James Boyd, student council
representative. This year the senior class had
their all school party in September and sponsored
a valentine party in February, but most of their
activities were held in May, when they had their
senior picnic, senior breakfast and the favorite
activity of all seniors-graduation.
