From Our President

2022 was a busy year for the Lasso Alumni Association as we celebrated the 90th anniversary of the Lassos.  This year should be just as exciting. We have many activities planned for 2023 for the LAA.  On April 13, we will have our Fiesta Medal Event and raffle at Los Barrios.  We would love to see you and I know you will want to see the Lassos. Mark your calendars and look for more details.  Last year we brought back our Golf Tournament at Cool Crest.  It was very successful and we plan to have the event again in 2023.  The event will be in the fall, so come join us for an enjoyable evening.  

I was proud to be a Lasso and graduated in the class of 1975. I have many fond memories of that time and remained friends through the years with my fellow Lassos.

I am not sure I appreciated the history of the organization during my Lasso years. All the same, I remember the excitement of performing at football games and cheering on our Mighty Mustangs from the stands. All those early morning practice sessions were worth Friday night performances. In my class, we had 100 Lassos on the field performing with the band.

I joined the LAA in 2017 and have been delighted to work with fellow alumni in support of the current Lassos. They are excited to be Lassos, and it has been fun to hear their stories and share some of ours.  Most of my time on the LAA board was chairing the scholarship committee. I have enjoyed learning about our Lasso seniors through the application process and pleased we are able to offer scholarships.  The Lassos are a group of very talented young ladies.

Once a Lasso, always a Lasso.
