I spent eight years in the Army (1966 – 1974). After getting out of the army I went to work for US Steel and started college. While working on my degree I got involved in racing motorcycles. I raced motocross for 6 years as an amateur and then turned professional and raced for another 2 years. I graduated from the University of Houston in 1981 and got an Electrical Engineering position at US Steel. After two years I took a job with GE Healthcare. I worked for 28 years at GE and retired in 2011.

Received this note that John Cancellare wrote Mary Yates (McGarr) back during our High School days.  Thanks Mary for keeping the note all these years, gives us a good idea on what a since of humor John had.

I have noticed that there has not been a lot of classmates sign up for the Irvin High School tour for Saturday morning. I just want everyone know that this tour is not the tours we received in past reunion. IHS tours have gone to a new level and now the students post a video of the tour on YouTube. I talked to a lot of the classmate from 65 and they said the tour was amazing. The class of ’65 50th reunion YouTube video can be seen from the link below:

I guess our website has gone international. I received this e-mail from Guy Eveillard who now lives in Toulon, France. What a nice surprise and a compliment for our French teacher Mrs. Margaret S. Tolbert:

From August 1965 to August 1966, I was a French Air Force student in Fort Bliss. I met Mrs. TOLBERT and I used to go to her French class in Irvin High School to read French texts and to discuss with students. Some of these students were from 67 but I remember some of 66. I still have the "year book" of 66 class. These moments are among the best of my life. Thanks to make a communication from me during your 50gth reunion. Guy EVEILLARD

To celebrate our 50th Reunion, Ruben Rosario designed and created a poster to be on display during our 50th reunion. I have replaced the picture of our school in the top left hand corner of our website with the image of Ruben’s poster. To see a real size image of this absolutely fantastic poster select Photo Gallery at the top of our website and in the drop downs select Reunions. On that webpage you can select 50th Reunion and then select the picture of the poster to make the image larger. Thanks Ruben for all your hard work, well done amigo.
