asked the question, “What do you look for in a girl?”
(boys question) or “What do you look for in a boy?”
(girls question), this is what we got.
Charles Cannefax – I look for a figure like Jane Mansfield.
Emerson Henderson—The first thing I notice is the
size of her feet.
Jerre Frost—The first thing I notice about a boy is
the way his hair falls (without the greasy kid-stuff!)
and the look in his eyes that tells you what kind
of a person he is, J.C! (Reporter’s note: I guess
she means John Conn)
Dianne Deen—The first thing I notice about a boy is
his height. Tim’s note: and ‘width’ also.
Paula Furrh—The color of his socks!
Mary Woodruff—The first thing I notice in a boy is
how he is dressed.
Robert Hindman—I look for looks. (Reporter’s note:

TAKE PART IN MONTHLY FIRE DRILL
The Wills Point High School and Junior
High students took part in a fire drill Friday morning,
February 5. The drill was carried out smoothly and
in record time. These drills take place once every
month at the discretion of the fire marshal.
A fire drill at school is an activity by means
of which pupils and teachers empty the building quickly
and orderly and thereby receive practice in the same
procedure in case of real fires. An effective fire
drill requires organization and direction. Early in
the school year Mr. Pennington appointed a fire marshal,
Kenneth Mislivets, and two lieutenants, Brad Ferrell
and Danny Mapes and instructed them in their duties.
They know the signals – three bells to leave the building
and two to return – and they know the places of exit.
Fire drills were originated and are observed
to protect us in case of an emergency, a real fire.
The practice of fire drills, if seriously considered,
makes the pupils ability to leave a burning building
a natural activity, an activity that becomes second
nature. Fire drills help to prevent panic and therefore
save lives. They are necessary.

Petillo, Class of 1968
a nice afternoon a couple of weeks ago, I visited
Brenda Beach Petillo. She is known around Wills Point
Junior High School as Mrs. Petillo but most of us
remember her as Brenda Beach, Class of 1968.
met at her mom’s house, the house that Brenda lived
in most of her life. She and her family moved here
from Garland, TX in the early 1960’s. Her mom still
lives in the same house and Brenda still lives right
beside her and loves it!
went right off to college after graduation. She attended
Christian College of the Southwest in 1968 and 1969
then transferred to East Texas State University and
graduated there in 1972. Brenda commuted to both schools
and lived at home with her parents all through college.
first day of school at Christian Southwest she bumped
into a nice fellow named Bobby Petillo who made the
remark “that’s the ugliest dress that I’ve ever seen!”
It was love at first sight. They married in 1972 after
graduation and Bobby joined Brenda in Wills Point.
first job that Brenda ever had was the only job that
she ever had. Mr. Felix Massey hired her to teach
at Wills Point Junior High School and she remained
there for 31 years retiring in 2003. Her husband Bobby
was also a teacher for WPISD and retired there as
well. They have horses, dogs, cats and all kinds of
critters and you can tell that they love their life
together! And yes, they are still on the home place
just west of town on highway 80. They built their
home there and according to both of them, “life is
enjoys piece quilts and ‘counting cross stitch’, a
hobby that she has won several first place ribbons
for at the VZ County Fair and even one at the Texas
State Fair. She spends most days with her mom. They
have their routine of things to do and ‘shows’ to
watch. She also still rides horses and ‘piddles’ with
the cows and other animals around the farm.
says that her proudest moment in her adult life has
been the time that she spent representing her old
school as a teacher. When it comes to her life Brenda
has no regrets. In five words or less everything has
been; love and laughter.
1) How do you remember WPHS? It was a wonderful
2) What was a fun Saturday night with you back then?
Going to the show. In fact, Bobby and I still go
to the Majestic every Monday night.
3) What is a fun Saturday night for you now? Staying
at home and renting a movie. 4) What is the funniest
thing that you remember about WPHS? Mrs. Roberts
the Homemaking teacher had the class making crème
pies one day. She was called to the office for some
reason and she told us to continue what we were doing.
Janis Kanaman was making a chocolate pie and said,
“Do you think it’s ready?” We told her yes and she
took the beater out of the bowl, it was still turned
on and she slung chocolate pie all over everyone and
everything in the Homemaking room! We had a time trying
to get all of that chocolate cleaned up before Mrs.
Roberts got back! We couldn’t clean it up for laughing!
5) What was your proudest moment in high school? I
tried out for the Betty Crocker Homemakers Award.
Girls tried out for this award from all over the United
States and I was in the top 10% winners.
6) What is a secret that we never knew? I was terrified
of Coach Carter and I still am! If I met him on the
street, I don’t know if I could speak!
7) Who did you have a crush on and they never knew
it? Buddy Weathers.
8) Did you ever cheat on a test? NO!
9) Who was your best friend? Jo Ann Shelby
10) What’s the craziest thing that you two ever did
together? We were good girls! Nothing crazy!
11) Who was your favorite teacher?
12) What did that teacher teach you that wasn’t in
a book? To have a good attitude about life. He
taught me about values and morals.
13) What is your biggest regret? I wish that I
had been more outgoing. I was pretty shy.
14) What was your very best moment in high school?
Winning the State Championship! Wasn’t it everyone’s?
15) If you could go back for a day, what would you
do different? I would try harder to talk my Daddy
into letting me go to the State Championship football
game in Wichita Falls that night!

driving down Commerce Street a while back, I saw
a tall fellow crossing the street and noticed that
it was Mickey Blake Robertson, Class of 1968. Of
course I stopped and jumped out of the car with
my camera in hand. Mick tried to run but I caught
him and here he is. You can tell that he doesn’t
like to have his picture taken and I don’t know
why. He still looks great! We talked about the team
of ’65 and the game in Wichita Falls. He still remembers
how cold it was and how tuff the White Deer team
was. He said that because it was such an important
game that most of the younger guys sat on the bench
that night. Mickey added that was fine with him
because he rememberd seeing Danny Mapes come off
the field with tears in his eyes. That’s when he
decided that he was in a good spot ... on the bench!
Mickey married sweetheart Pam Jones, Class of ’68
and they have three sons Blake, Craig and Casey,
who all graduated from Wills Point High School.
He and Pam have lots of grandchildren that they
love to spend time with! Hey Mickey Blake!

me the other day and after a closer look, I realized
that it was Mr. Victor Jordan! He was at the drug

Mr. Jordan retired here after many years at WPISD

Boxley, Class of 1965
I was trying to decide who in the class of 1965
I would ask to be our ‘classmate of the day’, I
wanted to interview someone that we all knew. I
wanted someone that we knew but someone that we
hadn’t heard from in a while and that’s when I decided
that it would have to be James Boxley. Who can forget
James, with his soft voice and very shy but sweet
personality. He’s a hard guy to catch up with, so
finally, I asked him to come by after work and he
was nice enough to accommodate me.
James and his family moved to Wills Point,
Texas from Mississippi when he was six months old
and he’s been here since then. The Boxley family
bought a farm just out of town and he has lived
there all of his life except for a short time while
he was in the military.
James graduated in May of 1965 and
for one year he attended college at Henderson County
Junior College in Athens. He decided that school
wasn’t for him and he dropped out. As we all remember
well, Uncle Sam was ready to ‘grab’ you right up
as soon as you weren’t in school and that’s what
happened. He was drafted into the US Army in 1966.
His first thirteen months was spent in Southeast
Asia but the rest of his tour of duty was in Germany
and he came home after three years.
Shortly after returning home he met
a nice girl and fell in love. James married her
in 1969. He worked for himself on the family farm
until 1984, then went to work for Van Zandt County
and has worked there for the last twenty two years.
He’s still employed with no plans to retire any
James has a daughter Kim who graduated
WPHS in 1990. She is a housewife and lives in Seagoville,
TX. Kim has three children; two girls and a boy.
His son, James Boxley, Jr., Class of 1991, is a
baseball coach at Forney High School and he’s single.
When talking about his family, it wasn’t hard to
see that he is a very proud Dad and Grandpa.
He enjoys hunting. Fishing and has a
garden that he loves to ‘play in’. James still lives
on the farm and there’s always something to do.
His proudest moment after school came when he served
his country in the military. His biggest regret
is “maybe getting away from the farm and doing something
else”. James’ life in five words or less; “I’ve
learned a lot’.
How do you remember WPHS? It was fun and hectic.
2) What was a fun Saturday night for you back then?
3) What is a fun Saturday night for you now? Staying
at home and watching TV.
4) What is the funniest thing that you remember
from school? We always had fun at Halloween throwing
eggs, rotten ones if we could find them!
5) What was your proudest moment in school? Graduation.
6) Do you have a secret that we never knew? Yep
and I still can’t tell it.
7) Who did you have a crush on and she never knew
it? Linda Liston.
8) Did you ever cheat on a test? Yes.
9) Who was your best friend? Thomas Ferguson.
10) What’s the craziest thing that you two ever
did together? We used to take the tail pipes
off of our cars to make them sound loud and fast.
We always got stopped by the police but they never
did anything to us.
11) Who was your favorite teacher?
12) What did that teacher teach you that wasn’t
in a book? Discipline.
13) What is your biggest regret from school? I
wish that I had studied more.
14) What was your very best moment in high school?
I was on the baseball team the year that we went
to the playoffs at Hallsville. We had a real good
team that year and I was proud to represent my school.
15) If you could go back for a day, what would you
do different? I would pay more attention to everything
because it was a good time in my life but like a
lot of people who are young; I rushed through it
and couldn’t wait to grow up. If I could go back,
I would pay more attention.
& Laquita, A Love Story”
following story was sent to me by Laquita McCormick
Fellers, Class of ’66 who married her high school
sweetheart Buddy, Class of ’64 in the summer of 1965)
and I have known each other all of our lives. Neither
of us can remember not knowing the other, but we weren't
really friends until after he decided to ask me out
for a date.
story together started in the halls of Wills Point
High School. He was a junior and I was a freshman
and it was in the winter of 1963. He walked up to
me in the Library (study hall) one day and just stood
there. I just stood there, too. The bell rang just
as he finally got up the nerve to ask me out and then
I had to tell him that my daddy did not let me date.
Well, that did not deter Buddy at all. He hung around
me all the time at school. He walked me to class and
finally he talked me into moving my books to his locker.
didn't like him very much for a boyfriend at first
but he was so persistent and so serious and such a
nice guy. And he finally won me over. Buddy's sister
Lynn ran interference between us and she passed our
'notes' back and forth each day. He was winning my
a few months Buddy got tired of waiting for me to
meet him at the show. Sometimes I got to go and we
sat together and held hands but for the most part
he had to tolerate being 'stood up’ due to my strict
rules at home.
Then Buddy finally decided to just come out to my
house uninvited. He had heard stories about my Dad
being very strict and stern and there was always our
big, mean dog to contend with but he came to see me
anyhow. Surprisingly Buddy made fast friends with
the dog but my Dad was another story. He continued
to just 'run him off'. Daddy kept telling Buddy over
and over that I was not allowed to have boys over
and that he was not welcome there. I'm sure it wasn’t
on that first visit, but I remember Buddy telling
my Dad once that he might as well get used to him
being around because he would not be staying away.
Daddy had met his ‘match’.
was certainly impressed that Buddy would stand up
to my Dad and still be polite at the same time. I
was not allowed to talk on the phone either, at least
not to a boy. Buddy would call every weekend, usually
on Saturdays or Sunday afternoons when I didn't make
it to the show. My Dad would tell Buddy, "No, she
can't come to the phone!” When we heard that, we knew
that Buddy would be turning into the driveway in just
a few minutes time.
after what seemed like a lifetime my Dad started talking
to Buddy. Daddy either felt sorry for him or finally
came to like him. After several months of Buddy's
persistence, my Dad agreed to let him visit me on
visit to my house included having my three little
sisters sit or walk with us. And the rest as they
say is history. In 1964 Buddy and I enjoyed my sophomore
and his senior years as sweethearts, seeing one another
each day at school. My parents were always strict
and most of our dating time was spent with my family
or his but we were together and that’s all that mattered.
We married on July 2, 1965. As a promise to my parents
I went back and finished high school with my class.
I've always been extra proud to have been a member
of the class of '66 and I’m glad that I decided to
return to school that last year.
and I started our family in January of 1967 when our
daughter, Jodi, was born. Our son Lance joined the
family in November of 1969. Both of our children now
have their own families and are doing well. Buddy
and I grew up with our children. We made a point to
spend as much time as we could with them. We traveled
a lot, most of the time to the mountains in the summer
and we had a lot of fun hiking and camping. But Buddy
and I both now agree that we actually like being grandparents
more than we enjoyed being parents. It’s fun to spoil
them and send them home.

there for 32 years and was given an early retirement
at age 52. Now he works a few months each year for
Expo Group in Irving, usually building booths for
conventions. He also loves to spend time with our
grandchildren, travel, bow hunt, work with his cattle
and just hang around the farm. I have been in real
estate banking serving in loan administration for
the past 21 years. I work for JP Morgan Chase in downtown
Dallas. Commuting is not always fun but it is better
than living in the city on any given day. I also love
to spend time with the grandchildren, love to travel,
read and just hang around the farm with Buddy.
have been rough spots but they’ve been few and far
between and we’ve managed to get past them. Buddy
is my hero and my best friend. Anyone who knows him
knows that he doesn’t talk much but when he does have
something to say it is always important, interesting
or just plain funny. Our song back then was Ruby and
the Romantics, ‘Our Day Will Come’. I still love that
and I are quite a pair. We’re as different as night
and day and I love him more now than I ever have and
of course I appreciate him so much more now than when
we were younger. And like ‘our song’ back in high
school, our day has come over and over and over.
We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary last summer
on a cruise to Alaska. We have been blessed with a
wonderful life together.
