As I ponder this past weekend (May 25, 2019) with HS classmates from 1979, I think of the distances between our homes from different states and countries, but realize the strong bonds of the friendships made decades ago. How a High School in South Texas brought together people of the world to study, sing, pray, worship, eat, work and learn about the different countries and cultures we share.
We learned to appreciate the differences and similarities we had. We learned how teenagers around the world are pretty much the same. We've come to learn the dedication and love our teachers had for us as students. And, we have realized the discipline and work ethic that was demanded of us has made us who we are today!
Pan American International Coeducational College Preparatory High School in Kingsville, TX has produced many extraordinary people across the United States and over 20 countries. My experiences here gave me a solid foundation to base my life on. My HS friends are family to me and any graduate becomes family as well.
This past weekend was full of fun, friends, fellowship and family! Thank you to the Class of '69 for all they have done for us, and we, the Class of '79 hope to continue the tradition to the classes who have come after us.
WE ARE PAN AMERICAN!!
