EPHS Tiger Marching Band Earns Division I Rating in Bi-District •

Yet another superlative by El Paso High students during the week ending 14 October 2017: The Tiger Pride Band built on its Division I Rating in District competition with another Division I Rating at the Bi-District Round.  There were 16 marching bands participating in the Class 5A Bi-District round. 

El Paso High's marching band has qualified for competition at the Area level which occurs 28 October at Ratiliff Stadium, Oddessa.  The Area competion occurs the same weekend as EPHS 2017 Homecoming.

EPHS Principal to Move to Central Office


MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Hello El Paso High Tiger families,

It has been my awesome privilege serving as Principal of this incredible school for the past six years. I would like to let you know that I will begin the transition to a new position in the District as Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction. I will remain serving El Paso High as Principal during the transition until the hiring of a new Principal. I would like to thank you for all your work supporting this historic, beautiful, and high achieving, one-of-a-kind campus.  El Paso High will always have a very special place in my heart.

Kristine Ferret
Principal, El Paso High School

TIGERS RETAIN THE CLAW!

The El Paso High Tigers traveled across the mountain to R.E. McKee Stadium for the "Battle for The Claw" on Friday the 13th.  The Tigers scored first blood on their first possession and never trailed.  The defense prevented the Panthers from finding the end zone on numerous occsions from inside the the 20 yard line and capped the game with a resoundign sack as the clock ran out.  Final score:  Panthers 16, Tigers 23.  The Claw remains at la High for the fourth year in succession!  There was a good and loud crowd of Tiger faithful on Friday night.  On 20 October it is the Bears  at Bowie, then on 27 October, HOMECOMING at RR Jones Stadium when Irvin is the opponent.  Don't miss-out on the pagentry, the excitement on the field, and the fun in the stands.  Alumni are invited to supper with the Outstanding Exes and great-grandchildren of RR Jones in the Library before the game.  Tickets for the supper (admission to RR Jones is extra) is only $15.  Use Contact Us on this website or call Anna Mares of the Alumni Association (915-449-5720) to purchase tickets to the "skybox supper."

Watch a post game interview with two young Tigers conducted by El Paso Times Sports Reporter, Felix Chavez, and highlights of the game recorded by Rudy Gutierrez of the Times. Felix Chavez' wrap-up of the game along with video may be viewed here. The "Battle for The Claw" was the "Game of the Week" on NBC Channel 9's "Overtime," a high school football wrap-up program on Friday nights during the season.  Watch its 13 October episode here.

The defeat of the Panthers on the gridiorn was just part of a very productive few days of athletics "On The HIll." 

On Friday night the Lady Tigers disassembled the Bowie Bears in straight sets, 3 -0. The Bears failed to score a total of 30 points over the entier three sets, demonstrating the outstanding team cohesion and talent of this season's El Paso High squad.  And don't be mislead, every member of the girls' squad plays in each set through a rotation devised by Head Volleyball Coach Ysenia Alarcon and her assistants Samuel Zamora (JV) and Erika Quintero (Freshmen). By the way, the EPHS JV is also undefeated in Disrict and the Freshmen have given-up just a single match and are tied for first place in District.

On Thursday at the Chamizal Memorial Park, El Paso High School Girls Cross Country won the District 1-5A chamionship with a score of 65, edging Chapin with 68 points. This is the first District Title won by the girl runners of EPHS since 2012.

2017 District 1-5A Champion Girls Cross Country Team

Thursday also saw another District Championship for Tiger Team Tennis. El Paso High has won the Team Tennis District 1-5A title outright of shared the top spot for at least nine (probably more) years in succession.  The Tigers are under the direction of Head Coach Jerry Pippin who came late to "The Hill" in September.  Pippin previously coached at EPHS when he first moved to El Paso more than 30 years ago, but has spent most of his carreer with the talented pool of tennis players at Coronado High School.  Pippin has a strong tie to EPHS beause he is marred to a Tiger alumna whose large family, including mom, are also EPHS aumni. 

So in just two days, El Paso High collected two more District Championships, defeated a resurgent arch rival Austin team to keep The Claw at home, and has moved another step closer to a possible District Championsip in Volleyball with just three matches remaing in the District 1-5A season (Irvin currently 2-9, Jefferson, and Burges at 10-1 who face Chapin at Chapin before hosting the Tigers).

That's a definite "Rah! Rah! Rah for Ol' El Paso High!"

EPHS JROTC Cadets Run the Army Ten Miler

Two El Paso High School JROTC cadets will lace-up their running shoes Sunday, 8 October 2017, for the 33rd Annual Army Ten-Miler in Washington D.C. — a first for EPISD.  The El Paso Tigers are likely to be the only JROTC contestments in the run, at least from west of the Mississippi River.

After being part of the first EPISD team to compete in the Bataan Memorial Death March at White Sands Missile Range last March, seniors Mikel Adame and Angel Ramirez will now be the first El Paso cadets ever to compete in the ten-miler, running alongside 35,000 other registered runners.

 

“We are really proud because we will be representing our school and EPISD,” Adame said.

“Normally, when people think of El Paso High, they think about the building and say ‘that’s a beautiful structure,’ but the JROTC program was the first in El Paso and first in Texas. We want to bring more recognition to the program.” 

The cadets are attending the race thanks to sponsorship from the Association of the United States Army (AUSA).

“I am a member of the AUSA, so I contacted the Association and asked if they would be interested in sponsoring us,” said Velton Locklear SGM, US Army Retired, EPISD’s JROTC Assistant Army Instructor at the district level. “They have been very helpful.” 

Locklear, who led the Bataan team back in March, encouraged the cadets to participate in the ten-miler. Locklear will also participate in the run. 

“They (the cadets from El Paso High) did really well, and I knew they would be up for this challenge,” Locklear said. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them to go to Washington, D.C., and have this experience.”

Adame and Ramirez have been training for weeks to prepare for the run, participating in the German American Oktoberfest Night Run at Fort Bliss and other local runs, as well as running on their own time. 

“This past Sunday we ran ten miles with the Sergeant Major (Locklear), and we did pretty well,” Ramirez said. “We ran at Fort Bliss where the Special Forces do their rucksack marches and finished in 1 hour and 20 minutes.”

The Army Ten-Miler will start and end at the Pentagon, charting a course past national monuments and important landmarks in between.

This will be Ramirez’ first visit to Washington, D.C., and he is excited to see the sights.

“I am looking forward to seeing the White House and the monuments,” he said. “We are cadet officers, so it’s great to set the example for the other cadets and for them to see the things that can happen when you put in the work.”

EPHS Rated Most Beautiful and Football In Jones Stadium a Must See

So the El Paso Times does an on-line story extolling RR Jones Stadium as a MUST SEE place to view football.  On the same day, KROD Radion 600 AM reports Aceable ranks El Paso High School the sixth most beautiful school in Texas while Architectural Digest, folks who know a thing or two about what makes a building "beautiful," put the "Lady On The Hill" at the top of its list of Texas' beautiful schools.  

So what's new, you ask?  You've know these truths to be self-evident since you were a bona fides youngster.  Maybe now that you've been around a bit, seen many high schools, you appreciate even more the edifice, amphitheater, and setting "On The Hill" created for El Paso by Henry & Gustavus Trost.  Our alma mater is so unique and outstanding that the cheerleaders, dance team, mascot, and band of football teams playing against the Tigers in RR Jones Stadium make a pilgrimage to the 101 years old front steps to have their photos taken with marbel steps and the magnificant columns.  It's old compared to other high schools in the southwest; it is venerable by any standard; and it means something special to every person who has had the opporunity to be a student, faculty or staff member at The El Paso High School. 

Take a few moments to refer to the Times story (http://tinyurl.com/ybxzdzns ) and to take in the news report from KROD Radio (http://tinyurl.com/yaed75o6).  It'll stir that Tiger pride. If you are not a current member of The El Paso High School Alumni Association, maybe you should give serious consideration to joining now (or renewing your membership which lapses as of 1 September).  Something else to stir your Tiger Pride?  The Varsity Volleyball Team won it's match on 15 September against Austin to remain undefeted in District, and the football team downed the San Eli Eagles, 42-0.  A newsletter from The El Paso High School Alumni Association is coming to you soon.  You may contact the Alumni Association any day via E-mail at ephsalumassoc@gmail.com

Celebrating A Century On The Hill

On 16 September 2016, the Student Body of El Paso High School assembled in RR Jones Stadium to celebrate the 100th anniversary of El Paso's first and finest high school.  The students, in orange and black, were seated in  the west end of fabled RR Jones Stadium below the front steps of "The Lady on The Hill" who would mark her 100th birthday on Sunday 18 September 2016.  By proclamation of the Mayor and City Council of El Paso, that day would officially be El Paso High School Day in the city.  On the same day,. the high school on the hill would begin its second century of "molding lives and careers," being a bona fides historic landmark and state and nationally registered place of distinction.

City Council Representative Courtney Niland read the City's proclamation (see the following story)  and  a letter from Texas Governor Greg Abbott was read by Larry McManus, a member of the governor's staff and a member of the EPHS Class of 1983.

Sixteen September, also being Mexican Independence Day, el grito, "Viva la High!" was often exclaimed from the stage and in response by the student body.   Additionally, El Paso High's 1885 Original Central School Bell tolled 100 times, once for each year this palace of learning has served students and the community as a center for fine arts, athletics, discovery, and education.

A unique feature of the Student Body assembly was that a photo was taken utilizing  a remote contol, flying camera (a drone).  The photo depicts, from high above, the image of the student body and faculty seated in the stadium yet leaving seats unfilled to form the digits "1" and two "zeros" as depicted in the ground-based photograph at the top of this report. and as seen at the end.  As the 1885 Original Central School Bell struck its 100th toll, the student body erupted in cheers and waved orange leis they had been wearing to make the occasion more festive.  Choir Director, Mr. Tim Thompson, responded to the cheers and lead the assembly in a rousing chorus of "Happy Birthday" to the stately and revered "Lady On The Hill."

 Viva la High as her students embark on the high school's 132nd year and the outset of another 100 years "On The Hill."  Happy Birthday El Paso Tigers, whereever you may be!  May your spirit never die!

And now that photo from the drone. Notice how the "El Paso" on the end zone captions this photograph by Michael Reece, 2016 Outstanding Secondary School Teacher for EPHS, EPISD, and Education Region 19.  Outstanding, as usual!  Well done students, faculty, and staff!!!


Centennial Banner Makes Debut

The banner shown above was previewed in January during a media conference initiating the EPHS Centennial Legacy Series, but it had it's debut on 24 March for the Legacy Series presentation about Sports at the El Paso High School "On The Hill."  The unique banner will be displayed at various events during the Centennial Year, including the Centennial Celebration on 8 October when The Claw Game will be contested in RR Jones Stadium followed by the world record attempt for the World's Largest High School Reunion.  The banner is also expeted to be marched at the front of the El Paso High School Centennial Section in the annual Sun Bowl Parade on Thanksgiving Day 2016.  The El Paso High Alumni Association is also sponsoring a float to mark the centennial of "The Lady on The Hill" where the Sun Bowl was born and it's first three games played in 1936, 37, and 38.

Now that you've seen this new banner while it was displayed on the parking-lot fence across the street from the Schuster Avenueu entryway, take another, closer look.  You may not see the image of the columnaide from the portico at the front of EPHS, but can you you make-out why this banner is named "The Tiger Eyes Banner"?  Yup, that's a tiger looking back at you from behind the columnaide and superimposed text. Had you missed those amber eyes?  You won't again, will you?  The idea for the design for this 15-foot long banner came from Susan Torres Macias, the Student Activities Manager at EPHS; she is an alumna of the Class of 83.  The banner was created under the direction of Jamie Rupley at El Paso's Perky Press.  Anna Mares (Class of 80), an Alumni Association Director, generously underwrote "The Tiger Eyes Banner."

Another Landscape Change on the EPHS Campus

The southeast corner of Virginia Street at Schuster Avenue was transformed in 2014 by the EPHS PTSA 100 Project as a chainlink fence was removed, a bench wall added along the sidewalk, and new xeriscaping applied to create a low-maintenance, welcoming bus waiting area inlcuding stone boulders with flat tops for seating.  In fact, more than an enhanced bus stop, students daily used the remodeled area for lunch.  The transition from the 2014 to 2016 is described in the photos below.

Now the El Paso High Exes & Friends, with financial support from the EPHS Classes of 63 & 64, have added an Address Monument facing the center of the adjacent intersection.  EPHS 2015 Outstanding Ex, Amada Flores' AIM Construction was the general contractor, but Armando Aguilar was the stone mason who built the monument.

New Mascot Art Adorns Gym Floor

As the CD Jarvis Gym turns 50-years old this fall, the building was repainted inside and out and the gym floor got a much needed reconditioning.  The gym arena was closed much of the summer as the floor's existing, aged varnish and paint were stripped.  Where the flooring had become uneven over the years, the planks were refastened and leveled, chips and holes were filled, and the floor sanded smoothe before new paint was applied and new, high impact varnish laid-down.  The gym arena floor was finally reopened on 21 August,  just prior to the start of classes for the 2015-16 school year.

The center court mascot art and surrounding font (pictured above & below) are dramatic departures from a traditional motif which it replaces and which adorns most gym floors at high schools and colleges across the US.  The new art depicts massive tiger claw marks which have ripped-open the gym floor to reveal a tiger peering out from underneath.

The school district agreed to pay of portion of the cost of new mascot art and center-court font, but the bulk of that customizing cost was to be paid by funds raised by the Volleyball Boosters and the Basketball Boosters, the principal sports utilizing the gym.  With gratitude, the following donors contributed funding necessary for commercial artist Jesse Corral to apply the unique artwork at center court of El Paso High's CD Jarvis Gym..

  El Paso High Earns all Seven Distinctions on TEA Accountability 2015 

The Texas Education Agency's Accountability Ratings for all public schools was released Friday, 7 August 2015.  El Paso High School achieved all seven possible Distinctions.  El Paso High is the only one of the ten EPISD traditional high schools to earn every one of the seven Distinctions.  Additionally, El Paso High is  the only high school in the region to earn all distinctions three years in a row.  The categories which comprise the TEA Distinctions are these:  Academic Achievement in English; Academic Achievement in Math; Academic Achievement in Science; Academic Achievement in Social Studies; Top 25% Student Progress; Top 25% Closing Performance Gaps; and Postsecondary Readiness.

Another EPISD high school, The Silva Magnet School for Health Care Professions, a non-traditional high school, was again recognized by the TEA for accomplishment by attainment of all TEA Distinctions.  Also, Wiggs Middle School, the feeder to EPHS, was recognized for all Middle School Distinctions again this year.

El Paso High School named among America’s Best High Schools by U.S. News & World Report

El Paso High School has been listed as one of “America’s Best High Schools” as reported by U.S. News & World Report.  The distinction is based on key principles: that a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.

A three-step evaluation system is used in the analysis of "American's Best High Schools" by US News & World Report: 

Step 1:  This step determines whether each school's students are performing better than statistically expected for students in their state;

Step 2:  Schools meeting Step 1 criteria, the second step is to assess whether the school's students from traditionally disadvantaged populations – black, Hispanic and low-income – are outperforming disadvantaged students in the state;

Step 3:  Schools that made it through the first two steps became eligible to be judged nationally on the final step – college-readiness performance – using Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate test data as the benchmarks for success.

Congratulations to the Tiger team (students, parents, faculty, and staff) and community members who have worked to support and contribute to students' success at El Paso High School!

Thanks to the EPHS PTSA for providing the substance of these reports.

You don't have to be a former orchestra musician or a fan of symphonic music to appreciate the El Paso High School Orchestra and their newly premiered website:  www.ephsorchestra.weebly.com.

This Tiger aggregation is a string orchestra, but don't let that lull you into some sleepy stereotype.  If you'd like to see a rockin' orchestra click on the Musical Videos tab of the orchestra's website and watch both Part 1 and Part 2 of  2015 EPHS Tiger Night.  If that doesn't prompt you to want to stand-up, applaud and shout, you didn't have the sound turned-on.  You'll be proud of these Tigers!

Original Central School Bell is At Home at EPHS

The bell, which for years pealed from the tower of Central School at what was then the east side of downtown El Paso, is now part of El Paso High.  The bell arrived on campus on 15 October 2014 and was presented to the student body, faculty, and a crowd of alumni less than 48 hours later during the annual Homecoming Pep Assembly. 

The EPHS Alumni Association coordinated the transfer of the bell from the home of Ken Thomas, a retired EPISD employee, and alumni volunteers and voctional education students at EPHS will take part in the reconditioning of the bronze bell and the refinishing of the cast iron yolk and cradle.

The school bell was originally cast in 1885 in St. Louis, Missouri, by the L. M. Rumsey Manufacturing Co. which specialized in farm machinery and bells during the last quarter of the 19th Century until 1917 when the company closed.  High School for El Paso started on the second floor of Central School in September of 1885.  With the Old Central School Bell now at EPHS, an ad hoc committee is considering options on how and where the bell will be displayed.  One proposition being given consideration is to mount the bell on a custom-made cart so The Old Central School Bell may initiate some meaningful new traditons at EPHS at the confluence of the end of the high school's first century and the beginning of it's second century of excellence in public education for El Paso.  In this option, the bell may be used during football games to mark scoring plays by the Tigers; as signal indicting initiation or conclusion (or both)  to graduations held in RR Jones Stadium; Memorial Day and Veterans Day Ceremonies on the front steps; Homecoming and Sun Carnival parades; and as part of other events on the campus and in the community.

Ken Thomas, the donor of The Old Central School Bell, told media before the Homecoming assembly that El Paso High was the ideal place for the bell because a) El Paso High is the succesor to high school at Central School; b) the JROTC program at EPHS was a continuation of the first JROTC unit in all of Texas which was formed at High School, then at Central School and it was Major James Gaines, an EPISD Assistant Superintendent for JROTC who saved the bell from oblivion and possibly the scrap heap; and c) El Paso High has an alumni association which cherishes and preserves the history of The El Paso High School dating back to the early days at The Old Central School.   Thomas also told reporters that he was very impressed on how competently and amicibly the personnel of the EPHS Alumni Association had acted in the three weeks since he offered the bell to El Paso High. The palpable excitement on the EPHS campus among students, faculty, and alumni, Thomas said, was evidence The Old Central School Bell has found it's rightful home.

Read a report about The Old Central School Bell at these links:  El Paso Times or EPISD .

The 1885 Original Central School Bell is displayed below after the bell has been cleaned and mounted on a custom-built cart with sign panels added to identify the bell and tie it to its home, The El Paso High School. Fernando Lopez (Class of 1966) volunteered to paint the bell cart and Nancy Schwartz (Class of 1966) donated the required primer, paint and other supplies.

Remaining to be repainted are original wrought iron yoke, holding the bell, and uprights, which cradel the yoke.

Centennial Commemorative Tile Project Update

On 25 April 2015, additional Centennial Commemorative Tiles were mounted on the backside of the press box at RR Jones Stadium, completing that installation.  The second installation was begun on a wall between the Library/Cafeteira and the CD Jarvis Gym.

The second installation site is being laid-out around a new center tile application which continues the Tiger motif seen on the press box installation and includes the popular verse from The Orange & Black, El Paso High's original fight song:  For when we're on the field of battle/ Then for our colors we will fight/ The Orange and Black will always stand for what we know is right! ...

To the left of the Tiger is a tile in tribute to Coach CD Jarvis with notation of the 1947 State Basketball Championship he lead.  Next to that is a tile for Coach Ken Morehead recognizing his 22 years as Head Baseball Coach at EPHS.  Further to the left is the tile purchased by Richard Crockett (Class of 1965) commemorating the Tiger basketball team of 64-65 which finished the season 3rd in State.

During the addition of tiles at the press box installation, it was discovered that the EPHS Class of 1966 tile was cracked and will have to be remanufactured.  The Class of 1966 tile was one of only two tiles on the top row until the new additions were made; both those top-row tiles were cracked by undetermined causes.  Each of those tiles, when remanufactured, will be added to a new installation on the EPHS campus.

Crack visible in lower right quadrant across "F" and "1" of "OF" and "1966."  Photo Courtesy Sandy Aaronson

EPHS Centennial Commemorative Tiles may still be ordered from the El Paso High Tigers Friends & Exes.  Find details elsewhere on this Home Page.  Proceeds from purchases of these tiles have been donated by the Friends & Exes to the EPHS Project 100, El Paso High School's PTSA campus enhancement and beautification project (find donation opportunities for Project 100 elsewhere on this Home Page).

Centennial Commemorative Tile Project Continues to Grow (Updated 29 Mar 2015)

Installation of Centennial Commemorative Tiles on the backside of the press box at RR Jones Stadium is nearly complete and the El Paso High Tigers Friends & Exes are turning their attention to the second installation site for tiles:  the wall surrounding the receiving area at the east end of the Library/Cafeteria Building.

The Centennial Commemorative Tile Second Installation site is to be on the wall at the right in this photo.  Note the new tables and benches installed as part of the EPHS PTSA's EPHS 100 Campus Beautification & Enhancement Project.  The new tables and benches were purchased with part of an additional $3,400 grant from the Centennial Commemorative Tile Project.  The "Eye of The Tiger" art on the wall of the Library/Cafeteria Building is a gift of the EPHS Class of 2012. (Photo courtesy Sandy Aaronson)

Centennial Commemorative Tiles may still be purchased at the price of $135 each, with up to three lines of text to salute alumni, a family, faculty member, or an enterprise which has been a support to EPHS during it's first Century of Excellence.  To request an order from, use the Contact Us button on the Main Menu.  Be sure to include your name, your E-mail/postal address,  and a phone number at which you may be contacted, please.

On Friday, 26 September 2014, The EPHS Class of 1966  Centennial Commemorative Tile was mounted top row, center of the  first tile installation on the back wall of the press box of RR Jones Stadium.  The EPHS66 tile is situated immediately above the tile honoring the school's architects and engineers, Trost & Trost.  This placement recognizes The Class of 1966 as the EPHS Semi-Centennial Class.  (See The EPHS Class of 1966 tile on the top row, above the Tiger and "HIGH" in the photo below.)

  The 16" x 16" tiles, commemorating the EPHS Centennial, are a project of the El Paso High Tigers Friends & Exes organization.  You may find additional images of the initial Installation of tiles at the press box in the EPHS Campus Photo Gallery.  The second installation of tiles is expected to accommodate an additional hundred or so tiles.   The EPH Friends & Exes initially donated $5,800 from tile sales to the EPHS PTSA for campus improvement and beautification also depicted in the EPHS Campus Photo Gallery.
 

The EPHS66 Quinquagenary Reunion Organizing Committee voted to assure that EPHS66, as a class, would be represented among the tiles which become a permanent reflection of the school's first century as it embarks on its second century. 

So that the purchase of the commemorative tile would not place a burden on the reunion organizing committee's treasury, it was agreed to off-set the cost with voluntary contributions from EPHS66 classmates.  Those who have contributed are listed below, but you may now join the list with your contribution of from $5 to $20, sent to EPHS66 Reunion, 2227 N Kansas St, El Paso 79902.  More infomaton about the Centennial Commemorative Tile Project and how you may purchase one is displayed elsewhere on this Home Page.  Thanks to these contributors:

Volunteer to Contribute to Brain Function Research 

Scientists are currently testing many promising treatments that could help reduce cognitive decline and delay the onset of brain disease. Yet a major challenge for research is recruiting participants for studies.  Researchers need all sorts of volunteers to participant in clinical trials, not just those who are concerned about or diagnosed with brain disease.  Healthy volunteers are often needed, for a variety of reasons. 

The Brain Health Registry aims to speed up the drug discovery process by matching eligible volunteers with the right research study.  The brain health and lifestyle information shared by volunteers helps The Brain Health Registry efficiently identify what kinds of studies for which a volunteer may be qualified.  Once the Registry has identified a study for which a particular volunteer  may be a good match, the Registry will send an email describing the study and giving the volunteer more information about how to participate.

Reunion Committees are forming and volunteers are welcome (see Quinquagenary Reunion menu tab).

 

In addition to working toward a meaningful and memorable Quinquagenary Reunion, the Organizing Committee is also dedicated to assisting with the George Hodge Monument Project. You'll find information about the project honoring your classmate below on this Homepage. Your contributions for the monument project as volunteer and as donor will be appreciated.

Bookmark the ephs66.org website, return often, and look for new announcements as well as new Classmate Profiles. Help spread the word to other members of EPHS66 and friends from those good ol' high school days. If you Facebook, watch for news of the reunion, the centennial, and the George Hodge Monument Project at EPHS 66 Reunion 2016.

Whether as a visitor or as EPHS66, we want you to enjoy this website. Tony Baldi is the website administrator so suggestions, problems, and compliments should be addressed to him through the Contact Us tab.

Who is EPHS66? If you attended El Paso High School in the class that began as lowly 8th Graders in September 1961 and which graduated in May 1966, you are EPHS66. You needn't have attended throughout that five year period; you didn't even have to have graduated from El Paso High School; nor did you have to begin in 8th Grade: you are a member of the EPHS Class of 66 if you are a classmate and at heart an EPHS Tiger!

 

George Hodge Ball Park Monument Project

Available Now!  Take a virtual of tour of George Hodge Ball Park in the Photo Galleries menu tab.

             

A Conceptual Image displaying the George Hodge Monument at the site in the ball park where it is to be erected.

On January 8th, 2013, the El Paso Iindependent School District Board of Trustees approved an application from El Paso High School to name the new (completed in 2011) baseball & softball facility for EPHS in memory of George C. Hodge (EPHS Class of 66). The approved application included a monument concept of a tall hunk of quarried limestone on which would be attached a cast bronze plaque displaying a relief of George Hodge and a biographical sketch of him.

The El Paso High School Alumni Association has been authorized to collect donations for the George Hodge Monument Project. Contributions should be made payable to “EPHS Alumni Assn” and mailed to the following address:

EPHS Alumni Association

PO Box 5024

El Paso TX 79953

When sending a donation by check, please write in the Memo “George Hodge Monument” and your EPHS Class above the date (e.g., Co1966). All donations will be acknowledged. The EPHS Alumni Association is an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; donations may be deducted for income tax purposes to the extent allowable.

Any donation is welcome, but it is asked that all donors consider a minimum contribution of $15 – the equivalent of just $1.25 per month for a year. EPISD provides no funding for this project: all funds and donated materials and services must be collected from EPHS alumni and from the community. If you can help collect in-kind donations such as contractor services, transportation for the monument stone; the stone itself; etc., please contact Steve Blumenthal or Tony Baldi, administrator for this website, through the “Contact Us” tab.

Carl Campos (EPHS Class of 69) volunteered to provide architectural services for the George Hodge Monument Project and has created four conceptual shemes for the monument and ideas for a paved plaza with coordinated benches to surround the monument.  An EPHS committee adopted the design concept (see above) for the monument on 3 December 2013 from which final design work has been produced.  A architects rendering is displayed above, on the website of the EPHS Alumni Association (www.ephsalum.com), and will be used in releases to news media in El Paso.

EPHS Centennial Tile Project

El Paso High School has been a part of you for decades.  Now, as the historic "School on the Hill" is preparing to observe its Centennial, El Paso High Friends & Exes has devised a way for you to become a part of EPHS, literally.  Above is the 16-inch square tile purchased by the EPHS66 Quinquagenary Reunion Organizing Committee with individual contributions.  The displayed tile will be installed at the school to commemorate the Centennial Celebration.  Each high relief, etched tile is custom made with from one to three lines of personalized text (limit 21 characters and spaces per line). A tile may represent a family of EPHS students, an individual, a graduating class, a business, or a message.

The price per tile is NOW $135 plus $3 for each character over the alotted 60.  Payment to El Paso High Friends & Exes. 

For more information or to obtain an order form, contact EPH Friends & Exes Treasurer, Sandy Aaronson by E-mail sandyaaronson@gmail.com or by phone 915-588-7888 (or use the Contact Us menu tab on the left to request an order form; be sure to include the E-mail or street address to which you want the form sent). 


 

Campus Enhancements Progress
Take a look at the continuing change at the corner on Schuster and Virgina. The top photo is of transformation from a weed ridden yard within a short chain-link fence to a school bus waiting area as it first appeared early in 2014.  The bottom photo is of that space now that some landscaping has been added and taken hold (April 2014)  

This is significant enhancement undertaken by the El Paso High PTSA, but it is by no means the only improvement undertaken by parents, faculty, and students to spruce-up the campus before the Centennial Celebration Year, 2016.  Additional evidence of the PTSA Outdoor Improvement Project is now displayed in an EPHS Campus photo gallery open on this website.  

Thank to the donors who made the Bus Wait Area project possible. The PTSA is still in need of donations and sponsors for these additions to the campus through the end of 2014:  Tree $200; Trash Receptacle $500; Classic 4' Bench $375; Classic 6' Bench $700; Classic Picnic Table $800; Round Table $900.  Click on the SONSORSHIP FLYER links in the EPHS ROAR below for more information.  The deadline for sponsorships is 1 January 2015.  The EPHS Class of 1966 has contributed for a new tree planted at our venerable alma mater; individual donors have contributed for additional items.

El Paso High Is Turning 100!

The Lady on the Hill is turning 100 in 2016 and the PTSA has some very exciting projects to announce in anticipation of this historic event.

1. Because of an incredible gift by some very generous donors and the hard work and spectacular efforts of Jennifer Barr Ardovino and Desert Elements Landscape Design, LLC, the entrance along Schuster and Virginia will soon have new landscaping. Work will begin very soon. Our goal is to have this phase of the project completed by January, 2014.

2. You can participate in beautifying our beloved school and honoring your loved ones by making a general donation or purchasing trees, tables or benches for installation this Spring. All tables and benches will have a plaque stating in whose memory/honor the donation is made. All other donors’ names will be written on an El Paso High 100 Plaque, placed inside our school. Deadline for purchases is March 1. The sooner items are ordered, the sooner they may be installed. Please see the attached flier and/or go to the EPHS webpage – www.tigerptsa.org for more information.
