The attached picture is of Lt. Col. Thad Trapp. He is a recruiting officer in San Diego at the Marine Corps Depot. My husband Terry and I went for a week long training session this summer called the Marine Educators Workshop. We were there the first day of training in a briefing with other educators when this guy stood up and proudly proclaimed he was a graduate of Waxahachie High School! I about fell over. He had no idea two teachers from his hometown were even there. I tracked him down after the briefing and talked to him about WHS and had him take the picture with us. He was on the football team and is trying to plan a trip back to coincide with the stadium dedication Sept. 9. He joked that he wanted to see this picture make it in the Waxahachie Daily Light, so I thought I’d send it in, in case you find it news worthy.
