Changing Texas City High School's school colors

September 15, 2016 by Leah Chauvin (Register to contact)

As some may have read there is mention of doing away with the colors of orange and black for TCHS colors. Seems there is a plan to incorporate the color blue for LaMargue. Now I know there had always been rivalry. Normal, right? But in my opinion, and mine alone, Texas City High School had nothing to do with LaMargue School District closing and taken in by TC....for whatever the reason: money,. poor management, failing scores. And amount of students, I am sure the list could be endless...but it is still not the fault of students all the way back from the 1920's until 2016!!!! It is just not right. And past and present students should have a say!! Seems like giving the trophy to all the kids when there was only one winner.
I would appreciate knowing how many other students feel about this.
I am considering writing each a letter explaining that as a graduating student 60 years ago the mascots and colors meant a lot to me when I was old enough to know these were our (my) colors then and still mean alot to me for many reasons now, all these years later. Obviously, as I am now so old I am being corrected on my age!!!!
If any of you feel the same, I will add your name with your request on here along with your year of graduation.
Your feedback is appreciated.

It is becoming a daily grind with the City officials and TCISD to preserve our heritage, traditions, and culture on which Texas City was founded. Distance has made it difficult for me to make my voice present, effective, and heard. Too many of those in leadership roles are from the outside now - they know little to nothing of our City's pride and roots; hence they are detached and complacent at best when it comes to preservation of the history, traditions, and physical representations of our beloved city. Progress is one thing, but failure to incorporate and preserve who we "are" is callous and inexcusable. In the first 54 years of the TCISD, there was a Strong Family member on the School Board with my Grandfather Harvey M. Strong serving 15 years and my father, Guil Strong, serving 9 years. During their combined tenures, many schools were built in TC and the traditions of those schools were formed. Sadly, Northside Elementary (1957) is the only intact and operating school from their vision, efforts and leadership. Bits and pieces remain of some of the other schools and are in use, but most remains have been razed. The original Kohfeldt Elementary in West End still stands and has been converted into a private residence now - it is the oldest remaining TCISD structure.
When you take away the history, you take away your identity and pride. There is little left for me to return to from what I remember during my time living and growing up in Texas City. My family began visiting and working in Shoal Point / Texas City in 1887- 1890 and became permanent residents in 1897 - they are among the City's pioneer families. Grandpa Strong was instrumental in forming the TCISD in 1905. Grandpa Strong and Uncle Luther Simmons formed the committee to put forth the proposition to incorporate Texas City in 1911. My grandparents had the first library in Texas City in their private residence (1906) and Grandma Strong was the first paid City librarian when the Texas City opened its first City Library in 1928. Grandpa Strong was the first assistant Postmaster for Frank Davison who was Texas City's first postmaster. Grandpa Strong also served as one of the City's first City Secretaries and City's Tax Collectors (I still have some of his early City Notary Accounting Journals and Tax Ledgers - they were saved from being thrown away). So much history all but forgotten, but one day it too will disappear. Time is a luxury of youth and a race for the aging.
