  • First of all, I want to Thank the Irving ISD for giving us the JROCT program. When I went to this school I was young but not dum I was taught by the best of the best even though I had Brain Cancer I kepted it to my self only the close people knew sure I had friends that understood I needed to do things my own way and time, It was hard to understand the way things was. The teachers was like your Sisters/brothers had time to sit down and talk if you had a problum or a bad day. I have had a blessed life from it, I am 43y/o lady that I can honestly say I NEVER been in Jail and I always to take some time out of my day to help someone and respect for the next person and for this High School to bring me up right I am forever greatfull. By the way, Would love to hear from other people from home and if anyone has Year books from77-80 I am interstead to get them. Oh,I still have Brain Cancer and I am in chemo now, but the memories at Nimits High School is whats been seeing me through= the everything.. I had I will always say thats what kept me alive all thease years.
