Reflect, Rejoice, Renew
Though it's been 55 years since we graduated from S.F.A., we are still going strong and have been able to stay connected through the efforts of several classmates who have worked to gather our class together for the 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 ,50, and 53 year anniversaries of our high school graduation year.
So here it is 2014 and so many things have changed. We can now contact each other by using the Internet, sending e-mails, sharing pictures, videos, and music, and so we've created our Class website.
Here you will find the most complete database of everything from S.F.A. Class of 1959, free of charge to you. You will find plenty of memories and a great way for you to see what's become of everyone. This is our permanent Class of '59 website, so come back often and update your information as it changes.
This website is dedicated to our classmates for the purpose of promoting, celebrating, and reconnecting with all members of Stephen F. Austin Class of 1959. The more you participate, the better it will be. Check back often! We have a class reunion here every day!

IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION, SUCH AS:
NAMES OF SIBLINGS OR PARENTS
PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
TRAIN OF LIFE
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize that they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey. Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.

Bryan Broncos Fight Songs
Oh, when those Bryan Broncos fall in line
We're gonna win that game another time
And for the BHS we love so well
And for the football team, we'll yell and yell and yell,
We're gonna fight, fight, fight for every score
And then we'll circle in and win somemore,
We're gonna roll old Temple in the mud, in the mud
Mud, Mud, Mud.
(To the tune of the Washington and Lee Swing)
Broncos hit that line
BHS Beat Waco
BHS Beat Waco
Broncos we are for you.
Fight, Fight you Broncos fight on thru,
We're here in back of you,
So fight on to the end.
Loyal and true we'll ever be
To SFA high school
We'll fight and fight with all our might
Hey Broncos, we are for you.
(To the tune of Semper Paratus)
Broncos hit that line.

if you can't share them?" We need YOUR photos, updates, and memories to enhance
this site and to make certain it represents ALLof the members from the S.F.A. class of1959.

May each day in the week be a good day
May the Lord always watch over you
And may all of your hopes turn to wishes
And may all of your wishes come true
May each day in the month be a good day
May you make friends with each one you meet
And may all of your daydreams be mem'ries
And may all of your mem'ries be sweet
The weeks turn to months and the months into years
There'll be sadness and joy, there'll be laughter and tears
But the one thing I pray to heaven above
May each of your days be a day full of love
May each day in the year be a good day
May each dawn find you happy and gay
And may all of your days be as lovely
As the one you shared with me today
May each day of your life be a good day
And good night.
John 24:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I Do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
And do not be afraid.
