“Every son and every daughter bears thy hallowed name; far above all others, always thou shall bring us fame. Southwest! Southwest!”
Edward T. Matheny, Jr., a civic leader who graduated from Southwest High School in 1940, takes a fond look back at the proud past of his alma mater. Matheny is the author of two books on the history of Southwest High School: The Rise and Fall of Excellence and Once More with Feeling.
