Mr. Jose R. Perez Jr. passed away on Saturday. He was an LISD educator of 36 years. He began his career with the LISD district as a teacher at Lamar Middle School.
Life is the greatest gift that God has given us. Death is only a bridge towards eternal life with God. Certainly, heaven is rejoicing for Jose R. Perez Jr., who has finally reached his true home. He will never be forgotten, we pledge you today, A hallowed place within our hearts is where you’ll always stay. We will miss you.

The TAMIU Garden will be a place where inspiration buds, knowledge grows, and Dustdevil’s roots run deep. A green space made for unearthing and discovery- where we take learning and research further and creativeness blooms.
The TAMIU Garden will:
Provide students with an opportunity to learn and share knowledge about food production
Enrich lives by connecting students to the world of sustainability
Educate students on the importance of community involvement
Provide the Campus and Community with green space
Be a source of food for TAMIU students and the Laredo Food Bank
Through service-learning and research experiences, students will connect with educational materials and grow!

Many of my former students could realize their dreams through the LISD Early College. You can also achieve the success you deserve.
Laredo Early College High School – Where dreams are ignited by the flames of knowledge.
Face it. Nobody owes you living. What you achieve or faiI to achieve in your lifetime
is directly related to what you do
or fail to do.
No one chooses his parents or childhood
but you choose your own direction.
Everyone has problems and obstacles to overcome
but that too is relative to each individual.
Nothing is carved in stone.
You can change anything in your life
if you want to badly enough. Excuses are for losers.
Those who take responsibility for their actions
are the real winners in life.
Winners meet life’s challenges head on
knowing there are no guarantees
and give it all they’ve got.
It’s never too late or too early to begin.
Time play’s no favorites
and will pass whether you act or not.
Take control of your life.
Dare to dream and take risks.
If you aren’t willing to work for your goals,
don’t expect others to.
