SCHOOL HISTORY s
By ELIZABETH MCNAiL
Eight years ago in the region of the Rio Grande, the red brick edifice which was
thereafter to be known as Ysleta High School, was completed. Soon its long shadow
was cast over well kept lawns.

to the exalted ideals, the everlasting loyalty, the beautiful friendships, and the happy
memories of golden hours spent within your friendly walls, which you have engraved
deep into our hearts. .
