San Elizario High names illustrator, author, Marine Samuel Sanchez as Honored Alumni

On Wednesday, officials with San Elizario High School announced their Honored Alumni for 2019: Samuel Sanchez

Sanchez is well known in San Elizario,  as a member of the El Paso Historical Commission and as a previous President of the San Elizario Genealogy and Historical Society.  He presently works at T&R Chemicals, Inc. as a chemical technician.  He also proudly served in the Marine Corps.

Aside from his community involvement, Mr. Sanchez also writes and illustrates.

In his memoir entitled, Memories are Made of This, and an article where he recalls his football experience titled Recollected Images: Football, San Eli Style, Sanchez captures moments in San Elizario during his childhood.  His most recent work is the Pirates in the Desert.

His work as an illustrator includes having illustrated for Texas historian, Leon Metz, and Conroy Brison, the President of the El Paso County Historical Society, the Indian Artifact Magazine, and author Elroy Bode.

His daughter, Christine Ann Perez states, “My Dad is not only a football player, a chemist, a Marine, a historian, an artist, an author, an illustrator or an old-west reenactor, but he is a kind, loving father.”

San Elizario High School will honor Mr. Samuel Sanchez on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, during the annual San Elizario Homecoming Parade, which starts at the corner of Chicken Ranch Rd. and Socorro Rd. at 5:30 p.m. and will be immediately followed by the Honored Ex Assembly at 7:00 p.m. at the Eagle Stadium.

The San Elizario High School football team will have the Homecoming game against Tornillo on Friday, October 4, 2019, at 7:00 p.m.
