THIS DAY IN HISTORY


 "We've been through hell and now we're done, we're the Class of '71” 

 

Welcome to El Paso High School's Class Of '71 web site.

 

  

 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Tigers, thanks to everyone who joined us last week at EPHS for Homecoming 2014, it was a tremendous turnout and more importantly it seemed like everyone that attended had a great time. I want to thank our officers and other key members who helped out and played such a key role in our success.

The Bell is home: for those of you that missed it last week we had the honor of brining back the bell that hung in Central School in 1884. Our tie to the bell is EPHS opened on the second floor on Central School in 1885. I've attached some pictures for you to view. Steve Blumenthal, Class of 1966 was instrumental in moving the bell. He worked on that tirelessly for 3 weeks prior to Homecoming, gracias Esteban. The actual move of the bell was a donation by the Schwartz-Blumenthal Families in memory of the late Herbert M. Schwartz and the late Albert J. Schwartz, each of whom are past Outstanding Exes for EPHS. Getting the bell home during Homecoming week was a tremendous blessing of which we are exceptionally grateful. Our next step for the bell is to build a custom trailer for it, so if you know anyone who does or can do that type of work please have them contact me. The trailer would need to be street legal so we can take it around town for games, the Thanksgiving day parade, etc.

Our last big event for 2014 is the 40th Annual C.D. Jarvis Basketball Tournament happening Nov. 20-22. Casa Ford is our corporate sponsor this year but we could still use help in other ways.

We are challenging each class to get an ad in this years tournament program. I've attached an ad form for your review and information. You can also get an ad for your business or family of Tigers!!! Due date for ad payment and artwork is Oct. 31, 2014. We hope you all step up to the ad challenge.

We also need food donations and volunteers to work the door. We will take any help that you can provide. If you are interested in volunteering or donating food please join us at our next and final meeting of the year, Nov. 12, 2014 at Gonzalo's, 401 E. Nevada at 6pm. The meeting will focus on wrapping up Homecoming and planning out everything about the C.D. Jarvis Tournament. We will have sign up sheets for volunteers that evening as well.

May Your Spirit Never Die Tigers!

Our table was installed a couple of months ago, but the plaque was just recently added. Thank you to all who contributed. It is the best seat in the house. A special thanks to Frank Eaton, Kiko and Linda Barraza.

 

Tigers,
 
  On November 20-22 the Alumni Association will be hosting the 40th Annual C.D. Jarvis Basketball Tournament in honor of the legendary Coach C.D. Jarvis.  We are thrilled to announce our corporate sponsor this year will be Casa Ford, Inc, we'll have more details about that in the coming weeks.
 
 As we do every year we will still need help from our Tiger Community to continue hosting what is widely considered the best boys basketball tournament in El Paso County.
 
  We could use any of the following donations:  food & drinks; monetary; gifts for bags which we give the visiting coaches or just some volunteer time to help us at the door and in the hospitality room.
 
  We also put together a tournament program  and we would like to challenge classes, businesses and individuals to purchase an ad in the program this year.
 
Ad Prices (the entire program is in color):
Full Page $100
Half Page $60
Quarter Page $35
Business Card $25
 
  Please let us know if you'll be interested in making a donation or purchasing an ad.  Last day to pay for an ad and submit your artwork will be Oct. 31.  Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
 
  The attached picture is Coach Jarvis and UTEP Coach, Don Haskins at Coach Jarvis' retirement party.  Coach Haskins use to refer to Mr. Jarvis as "the dean of coaches"  We will try to incorporate this photo into the cover of the tournament program since it already has the big 40 behind it.  We hope to hear from many of you, thanks Tigers!!

REUNION

MY HOME IS AVAILABLE IF FOR ANY MEETINGS OR GATHERINGS NOW OR IN THE FUTURE OR THE WEEK OF THE REUNION

MANNY FLORES

CENTENNIAL PLANS:
A committee was also formed to select the future outstanding ex. If you would llike to nominate someone please send your nomination to: ephsalumassoc@gmail.com

Committee would like to have a float in the annual Sun Bowl Parade that is held on Thanksgiving Day 2016. All former outstanding exes would be guests of honor on the float. There are approximately 46 living outstanding exes. If you or your business would like to contribute funds towards this or any centennial project please contact   ephsalumassoc@gmail.com

The committee would like to get all EX-Tigers to join the Alumni Association. Cost is $10 per year. The membership money would go a long way to helping with the cost of future activities. For legal and privacy issues we will NOT provide your contact information. If you are interested please contact the Alumni Associaton ephsalumassoc@gmail.com or Michael Montes mmontes1397@gmail.com.

The committee would like to get enough former Tigers to attend the Austin/EPHS football game on Sept 17,2016 to set a Guiness World Record. I think they said 3300 former Tigers would be needed. SAVE THE DATE, lets make this happen! Our Charles Hill has volunteered to contact Steve Kaplowitz who hosts Sports Talk on KROD 600 to see if the station would be willing to host their radio show from EPHS the week of the game

Request made for class reunions to incorporate the Football game on Saturday. Venues may get locked in early so if Class of 71 is going to have their seperate reuinion, planning needs to begin now. ARE YOU INTERESTED IN TAKING THE LEADERSHIP ROLE?

There is a plan in the preliminary stages to erect a new "E" on the side of C.D. Jarvis Drive (on Angie Street between the stadium and the gym. The artist rendition of the project looked very nice but the cost is expensive. Charles Hill suggested that EPHS could construct a wrought iron version with the letters EPHS, that could be lit on Friday nights in the stadium. The "E" on the mountain can never be used as the city will not give the schools permission to do so. Austin High and Irvin High still light their letters but they own their alumni groups own the land where their letters are erected. MAYBE WE SHOULD THINK ABOUT RAISING MONEY TO BUY THE LAND?  This idea is to be done in collaboration with the class of 2016.

Charles and Charlie
