I just found out this weekend that the school was named after Puentes. Thank you SISD and School board member Herrera. Sorry the media did make much hoopla about this just like they did for those street signs at compestre.

I'm talking about the former council member Gutierrez, who wanted to change signs, only because his son is veteran. Well let me tell you Campestre is not the whole city of Socorro, its in Socorro! If your naming any streets after Veterans it should have all the vets from Socorro starting from WW1 to now!! Get the picture. I'm proud vietnam vetran who was wounded in combat.
