1988
Southmost Elementary
Southmost Elementary, built to relieve overcrowding at nearby Garza Elementary, was immediately overcrowded itself. Built in 1988, the school features individual buildings for each grade level, joined by a covered walkway. The first day of school was memorable for Principal Nancy Mejia. The building was not ready for occupancy. Staff and students took it all in stride, opening classes on schedule.
