Dedication

This site is dedicated to the 1963 graduating class of Waxahachie High School. We were a class of

approximately 150 individuals who thought when we

received our diplomas at Getzendaner Park Chautauqua Auditorium on May 30, 1963, that the world would bow

to us and success was ours for the taking. We were so

naive, yet eager to accomplish the goals we had set for ourselves. Little did we know what lay ahead; and never

did we consider how much those who dedicated their

lives to teaching would influence us to this very day.

We will forever owe a debt of gratitude to our

teachers - those individuals who made that extra effort to encourage us when we didn't do so well on an exam; experienced defeat on the sports field; didn't quite

understand that solid geometry problem; or needed

support when the 'love of our life' dumped us and we had nowhere to turn. They taught, they encouraged, they

consoled, and they befriended. They, along with our

parents and loved-ones, helped make us what we are

today. Thanks for everything.
