I had a great partner when I was working in Mineral Wells, that was Randy (Hawk Bird) Alsup. I met Mr. Jim Alsup in the mid 70s. He was a great guy and I enjoyed talking with him. He was so proud of his family and, he was also proud of the kids of Iowa Park School System. It seems Iowa Park has always had very good teachers, and I know Mr. Alsup was one of the great teachers who really enjoying teaching in Iowa Park. When I would come back to Iowa Park for Homecoming, I would normally run across Mr. Alsup, I really enjoyed our visits, Mr. Alsup was a very respected man. I will miss him.
