I remember that someone spelled out “Slick” on his lawn with ice cream salt.

The picture you posted was indeed our principal when we graduated, but the picture is of Mr. Williamson, not Mr. ("Slick") Nelson..We also remember Mr. Nelson for his pants, worn waaaay higher than most men wore them!  Fun days!

Ok Boys and Girls, Ladies and Gents


Several classmates contributed various stories of interest regarding Robert Nelson Principal at RHS.


However the “FACT or Fiction” question was not answered:  “Nelson was principal at RHS from 1952 through 1961”


Double Click link below (to solve the mystery)


On the window with “Own this book” scroll all the way down to "Administration"


Then scroll down a few more window panes


Robert H. Nelson (Principal) 


Nelson looked young, chipper and slick in 1952…

Just returned from a visit with my 98 year old uncle at the Missouri Veterans Home.... sad to see what happens with our "old" vets that outlive families or have none near to help in their final years. But am impressed with the younger staff and nurses helping them there.

A belated Happy Birthday to all the OCTOBERITES!!!

Did your Uncle impart any history or stories from his service during WW2?

I know we hated the Vietnam War but many served there because they were in our Armed Forces. My husband David was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross but it was never given to him in a formal ceremony. Yesterday that was rectified. In the picture he is on the far right and the narrator is reading the account of that award. David was on an unarmed plane as a radio intercept operator. The targets he located were surrounding Dak To in November 1968. The resulting air strike saved countless Allied ground forces. This was a beautiful ceremony honoring a man who loves this country and served proudly.  There were over 20 Vietnam Veterans in attendance who received the Vietnam Lapel Pinissed on the 50th Anniversary of the withdrawal of troops from vietbam. Just wanted to share.

Wonderful, Paula.  Thanks for sharing.

Mr. Williamson kept wanting or needed our "corporation".  Larry wilson even wrote a funny song about corporating  and selling stock in Roswell High.

Thank you for letting us know, Paula.  We're thankful some of our Vietnam veterans are finally getting the honors they deserve.  Pat and David

Thank you class of 1962. Your kind remarks to my husband have been passed to him. This was a wonderful way in which The Lord allowed me to honor him. It was amazing that Barksdale Air Force Base, Shreveport, public affairs division,  orchestrated the ceremony simply to honor him. Our Texas State Legislators and Gov Abbott also issued proclamations that were read. It was a wonderful display of the richness of our country’s heritage and the love that we share for the “Home of the Brave and Land of the Free”.

Church described as 1st Baptist is:  Fiction   

Fact:  It's the 'old' 1st Methodist Church on the corner of West 2nd & Penn.  A modern 1st Methodist Church has been built at the same location.  Does that make me a deacon now...?   wink
