EMail to Riojas from Jose I. Perez-Rocha:
I am a graduate of Holding Institute 1959. I joined the US Army and spent 3.5 years with Troop "I" 3rd Recon Sqd, 2nd Armor Cavalry in Amberg Germany.
Upon my discharge from the US Army I returned to Laredo Jr. college to finish my A.A. and then transferred to Texas A&I where I graduated in 1971with a degree in Electrical Engineering. I retired from Lockheed in 2002 but was recalled as a contractor with Hernandez Engineering as a Senior Engineer at the Johnson Space Center.
I would be very pleased to give you some history on what I remember of Holding Institute, Laredo TX. We can meet at Jack in the Box today and I shall share my Holding School Albums. Thank you Doc, I love to hear and meet people from Laredo.
Doc, There is a very nice web site on Holding by Ms. Elsa Laura at http://holdinginst.tripod.com/. She is also a graduate of Holding. Please go visit it and get an idea of the size of our graduating classes and our international student groups.
