If things are not going like they're supposed to, it’s because you’re doing something wrong. You can’t keep doing the same thing expecting a different result - Coach Fraire
Hector, we always saw you with a smile on your face. You have a certain way of expressing yourself when you accomplished a goal.
From school goals to 'dingers' on the baseball field, that smile and expression when you know you did well & the high five or sincere hug.
We enjoyed your presence and your work all year. We had many great conversations. You're a smart, kind young man with so much to offer the world! we know you've had to overcome much in your life already — remember this is the stuff of wisdom.
Keep looking for the light. Your hard-earned wisdom will not only help you and others, but will also be a source of great strength. Keep being a force of good in the world!
You are such a hard working, kind, and humble young man. Your work ethic and dedication to your family is admirable. Wherever you go, whatever you do, do it with all of your heart! You will continue to succeed!
The road will get hard but it will not be impossible.
On behalf of the Fabens High School family, we wish you the very best!
