Throughout all my years of school I have met many friends and have been given many opportunities for memories that will last a lifetime. I started my education at Garfield Elementary and have formed friendships that have stayed close until the end.

In my high school years I was in the Queen City Belles, starting my freshman year, and have stayed in it all my four years. I have done countless routines that I have cherished and made many friends within the program. I had been named belle of the week my junior year and have been happy to say that I was the social officer my senior year.

One of my favorite memories would have to be performing in New York during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. A honorable mention would also have to be that I was the FBLA candidate for homecoming queen. I was also named Class Secretary my senior year.

My mom works for the school and owns her own business. My dad is long time employee at the radio station KWMC. My parents mean everything to me and have helped me along the way through my high school journey.

Lisa Garcia

High school has been a transformative journey, shaping me into who I am today. After the COVID-19 pandemic, getting back into the rhythm of in-person coursework and extracurriculars was challenging. However, I entered my sophomore year excited for what would lie ahead.

I had the opportunity to join organizations like the Del Rio High School Dance Company team, the National Honor Society, the National Technical Honor Society, and the Future Business Leaders of America. My academics and experience in these organizations helped me grow into a person with passion and optimism for the future. I am grateful for my time at Del Rio High School because it prepared me for the next chapter of my academic journey. Moreover, I am immensely grateful for the support and encouragement my family has provided me throughout my academics and in every aspect of my life. I am profoundly appreciative of my family: My parents Lisa Veronica and Alfonso Garcia, my brother Alfonso Garcia, who graduated from Texas A&M in College Station, and my sister Veronica Garcia, who is attending The University of Texas at Austin. Their love and support has been the foundation of my journey.

This Fall, I will be attending Texas A&M in College Station, where I will be majoring in Economics with a focus on corporate law. I look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead and plan for a valuable college career.

Alan Dobbins

High school is filled with great memories and moments shared between our classmates, peers, and instructors.

Out of my 4 years of attending Del Rio High School, my favorite memory is when our basketball team beat the rival, Eagle Pass, to make it to the state playoffs. A basketball season filled with ups and downs, as the final games of the regular season approached, adversity dawned upon us. We were told we couldn’t, however our team prospered and fought hard to win and have a chance at the state championship.

Other than the memories, I have earned many accomplishments. Honored by the district for multiple sports, district champ, defensive MVP, and first team, my favorite is being named All-State Academic. To be recognized amongst the students in the state is truly a blessing.

As for my future endeavors, I will be attending Angelo State University, where I will be studying business management in hopes to become an entrepreneur and start a business. At ASU, I will be playing football at the wide receiver position as well.

Del Rio High has blessed me with many memories, accomplishments and set me up for my future.

Del Rio High School Class of 2024

Congratulations on your monumental achievement. Your graduation is only the beginning of greater things coming your way!

THE STORM OF STORMS Ramble On by Ken Herrera

It’s been 165 years since the last large solar event that captivated the curiosity of many people around the world. This past May, we were able to witness a similar storm but on a smaller scale.

In September 1859, a large solar storm occurred just a few months before the sun reached its solar maximum in 1860. This storm came to be known as The Carrington Event, named after an amateur skywatcher in England.

What took place was a coronal mass ejection (CME), a burst of magnetized plasma from the suns upper atmosphere. This CME traveled over 90 million miles in a matter of 17.6 hours towards Earth, thus creating an unprecedented geomagnetic disturbance called an Electromagnetic Pulse.

According to NASA spaceflight, it usually takes CMEs a few days to reach the Earth’s atmosphere.

The Carrington Event reportedly wreaked havoc on the technology of its time. Telegraph lines and machines were disabled. Telegraph operators reported being shocked touching their equipment. And for many people around the world,

witnessed the Aurora Borealis or the northern lights for the first time.

Sunspot activity rises and falls on an 11 years cycle, and we’re currently approaching the next solar maximum in 2025.

You may be asking yourself why this matters. It matters due to the fact that everything we do on a daily basis revolves around power. The television we watch, our cellphones that we constantly use to communicate with family and friends. All information we receive via the internet. From the pumps that bring water to our homes and gasoline to the filling station.

Banking information and transactions will disrupted and delayed. Everything we do daily, from the computers we use at work to air travel and the electronic instruments installed on the planes.

It will all screech to a halt.

It’s not a matter ofIF this occur. It’s a matter of WHEN it will occur. How long will it take to repair all of the electric infrastructure. Government has no clue. Be prepared and #QUESTIONEVERYTHING
