Pasadena High School alumni present gifts during halftime ceremony
Three Pasadena High School alumni presented special gifts to the school during halftime ceremonies at the final home football game Friday, Nov. 9 at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
Frank and Donna Hale, members of the PHS class of 1963, presented Principal Joe Saavedra with a bronze sculpture of the school's eagle mascot. It has been displayed in the school library since the presentation, according to a press release.
Frank Hale was a running back for the state-ranked PHS football team of 1962 and Donna Hale was a twirler for the band. She later became the first cheerleader at San Jacinto College.
Frank Hale is a former criminal courts judge for Harris County and was, at one time, the prosecutor for the city of Pasadena. He also served as a municipal court judge and served three terms as president of the Pasadena Bar Association.
Barbara Legler from the class of 1977 presented a check to the PHS band from contributions sent to the family following Ken Legler's death in June. Ken Legler graduated from PHS in 1976. The couple met while members of the band. They both played in the band when it traveled to the Orange Bowl in 1974.
Barbara Legler filled the seat of her late husband in the Texas House earlier this year.
Pasadena High School is at 206 S. Shaver St., Pasadena.
