  • My wife, Vivian, being from Texas originally has a question. How did a school in Tennessee come to be named HOUSTON High School? We received a graduation announcement from a student there. E-mail back with answer.

  • Moreover, the ability to be innovative helps a leader to break people out of the narrow confines and closed-minded thinking of established tradition. I am very excited about the leadership at HOUSTON HIGH SCHOOL. No pain no gain and no gain no pain!
