BeschreibungA small, West Texas town, a graduating class, and a vanished, magical era in history
Ever wondered what became of the person voted "Most Likely to Succeed" in your high-school graduating class? Does the girl once named "Most Beautiful" still turn heads? And did that cute, high-school sweetheart duo go on to have a marriage made in heaven?
Ed Jackson determined to answer these questions and others about his Class of 1947 in the small, West Texas town of Cisco. His sentimental journey to locate and learn what the intervening 60 years held for his classmates turned the pages back to an innocent, almost magical time to grow up--when no home's front door ever was locked, when couples dated eight to the car, when the Band Banquet and box suppers were the biggest social events around.
As Ed traces his colleagues' becoming of age in the immediate post-World War II era, he examines their joys and sorrows up to the present day. His captivating vignettes well may prompt others to reconnect with high-school friends of long ago and to recall their own matchless yesterdays.
The book is endorsed by some of Texas' leading educators and politicians. Among them are Dr. Robert B. Sloan, Jr., chancellor of Baylor University; Charles Matthews, chancellor of the Texaas State University System; and John Muller, president of Cisco Junior College.
Author Ed Jackson is a fitness fanatic, community volunteer, and retired electronics execuive who at age 75 still looks ahead to the best years of his life. He has been a naval officer, space engineer, senior corporate executive, and volunteer missionary for the Southern Baptist Convention. He and his wife, Re, live in Garland, Texas.
