Texas High School State Champions - 1949

Bowie High School - Texas High School State Champions

Bowie High sat in El Paso's Second Ward, or Segundo Barrio, home to the city's leach field and sewage-treatment plant. A smelting operation, stockyards and a meatpacking company further fouled the air. Nowhere in the U.S. did more babies die of diarrhea. The barrio had no paved streets, much less sidewalks, streetlights or parks, and 50,000 people packed themselves into less than one square mile, about twice the population density of New York City. Those not living in adobe hovels were warehoused in presidios like the ones in which Camarillo and Bowie first baseman Tony Lara grew up, where as many as 175 families—at least 700 people—were shoehorned into a single block of two-story tenement buildings, with one communal cold-water commode serving each row of two-room apartments. Compared with Anglo El Paso, the Second Ward was, Camarillo said, "like another country."

Paul C. Moreno Elementary School - 1998

Paul Moreno helped pave the way for student education. He faced and fought discrimination in school and in the workplace. He is happy that your barriers will not be so great. He says “Take advantage of every moment in school to be that student which excels.”

Paul C. Moreno was born here in south El Paso in what is known as “Segundo Barrio”. He graduated from Bowie High School and got his bachelor’s degree at The University of Texas at El Paso. He then got his law degree at The University of Texas at Austin. Paul Moreno has worked hard to achieve all of his goals and continues to make us proud working to make things better for the people of El Paso.
