The District 19 Historians Team (May 2015 - the Future)
This initiative began with three TRTA members being on the El Paso History Radio Show in April 2015. The program focused on five Ysleta ISD schools that were bought or built between 1887 and 1934. Norma K. Irwin, Bea Sada and Ron Leiman decided there was much more to do with Ysleta ISD poised to celebrate its 100th Anniversary and the City of El Paso celebrating History Month in May 2016 focusing on the Ysleta Historic District.
Our May schedule is set: Saturday the 7th on the El Paso History Radio Show (AM 690), Thursday the 12th a Panel Discussion at Cadwallader Elementary School and Thursday, May 26th a Panel Discussion at Ascarate Elementary School.
The Historians Team will be comprised of TRTA District 19 members with an interest in the history of education and educational buildings/sites throughout El Paso County. In many cases team members will collaborate with community members and organizations in promoting our history and heritage.
If you are interested in joining our team, please contact your local unit president or historian; or Ron Leiman at firstname.lastname@example.org .
