    CLASS of 1927
    Mackay, Texas

    Mackay, Texas Class of 1927

    Mackay Class of 1927
    The school teachers in the school photo, on left Hortensia Trevino and on the right, Eudelia Trevino, are sisters. They are daughters of the Rev Elias Trevino, a pioneer Presbyterian minister in Texas in the early 1900s. Hortensia married my uncle, Guadalupe Ramirez, a 1928 graduate of Texas A & M, one of the first Hispanics to do so. He had been sponsored to A & M by A.P. and Marie Hough Borden. Guadalupe returned to Mackay as a teacher and there met Hortensia. Following their marriage in 1934, Hortensia and Guadalupe taught school in Bexar, Duval and Starr counties before joining the U.S. State Department's Agency for International Development (AID) and served in Bolivia, Colombia, and Paraguay for 17 years, Hortensia as a teacher and Guadalupe as Rural Development Officer and Agricultural Advisor. He became a close, personal friend of Bolivian president Rene Barrientos.

    In the school photo are some of my uncles and aunts as well as brothers and my sister. - Ruben R. Hernandez, June 21, 2005
