Waltrip Alumni Association

OUR ALMA MATER


During the program for the 50th Anniversary Celebration for Waltrip High School, a PowerPoint slide presentation was shown.  It's fun to go back to that time in September of 1960 when Waltrip opened and students began classes. 
Waltrip was the first high school in Houston to have an original school song and it was written by Jon Enloe and Joe Stuessy, Class of 1961.





"Our Waltrip High"

"Waltrip High, we sing to thee,
Our loyalty we raise.
Strong and noble always,
These tributes we now praise.
Honor, faith and courage,
These we testify.
Thee we'll always honor,
Our Waltrip High
Long we shall remember thee,
May mem'ries never fade.
Honesty, integrity,
These traits we have portrayed.
Qualities we'll cherish,
Always glorify.
Thee we'll always honor,
Our Waltrip High."
     
Music by Dr. Joe Stuessy '61 and Words by Dr. Jon Enloe '61
