Austin High School’s Diamond Jubilee Scheduled for Nov. 10

Campus to unveil new mustang mascot at event celebrating 75 years

Stephen F. Austin High School will be celebrating its 75th year of existence with a Diamond Jubilee on Sat., Nov. 10.

Festivities will take place from 1 to 4 p.m., and the program will include the unveiling of a Scottish Brigade memorial plaque (a girls’ drum, bugle, and bagpipe drill corps, 1937–1978), an all-choir presentation, a tribute to fallen heroes, an alumni pep rally, student exhibits and concessions, and a reception.

The debut of a new “Stevie” mustang (costume) mascot is also planned.

The keynote speaker will be Brigadier Gen. Joe E. Ramirez, Jr. (USMC) Ret., an alumnus who, after a distinguished military career, was named Commandant of Texas A&M University’s Corps of Cadets in 2010.

The event is free and the public is invited.

Austin High School, which was built in 1936 and opened in 1937, was named after the frontiersman, statesman, and politician. Known as the “Father of Texas,” he was a key figure in the early settlement of the state.
