OC sponsors free program

Because Odessa College wants to help high school seniors and graduates prepare for college, the college is offering a free program on Tuesday, Aug. 12 called the Senior Scholar Experience.

Students and parents who sign up for the program will attend workshops on how to choose a career, how to take standardized multiple-choice tests and how to pay for college.

At 9:30 a.m., Career Services will help attendees explore how to choose a career and decide what is important in the process. The standardized multiple-choice test workshop will follow an hour later. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and at noon, visitors will learn the ins and outs of paying for college including federal financial aid, scholarships, grants and loans.

Attendance is limited to 50 students and parents. The reservation deadline is at 5 p.m., Aug. 6.

To make reservations, call Rhonda Parsons at 335-6841.

Matta donates flag to museum

During the 39th "Old Timers" Reunion held on July 2, Lt. J.G. Ernest Matta, Jr.,of the United States Navy presented to the citizens of Pecos, a framed and documented American flag and photograph.

The inscription on the presentation reads, "This flag was flown over Iraq from the Carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) during operation Iraqi Freedom. It is donated to the Town of Pecos, on behalf of all the brave men and women who have, are, and will proudly serve in our country's military to maintain freedom."

This young Pecos sailor and his family were on hand to join us in celebrating our country's birthday as we enjoyed the West of the Pecos Rodeo Parade.

" The timing was perfect, for at the end of the presentation the color guard came around the corner and we all "Celebrated Our Heritage" together," said museum curator Dorinda Millan. "When you see this family in the streets and businesses of Pecos please be sure to congratulate them on the raising of a fine American son," she said.

"We at the Pecos museum wish to commend the wonderful men and women who serve our country proudly," said Millan.

The sacrifices made in every war and conflict for 225 plus years have ensured us our rights, privileges and freedoms.

"An example of the pride these individuals hold in their hearts as they serve the United States of America is apparent in the gift that they recently left in the care of the museum," said Millan.
