The Other Side

South Laredo gets knocked quite a bit, so it's good to hear success stories that prove that its residents are just like everyone else and possibly better.
Cigarroa H.S. alum Sergio Benitez:
Benitez attends Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cambridge, Mass.
He is pursuing a double major in electrical engineering and computer science.

Also from Cigarroa, Juan Olvera:
He is in the U.S. Army, stationed at Killeen. He was also accepted at the
University of Texas at Austin. Olvera plans to atend classes part time
while stationed at Killeen.

(Quotes via the LMT)
South Laredo: kicking ass.
