We all have a story to tell. Some speak louder than others. Listen closely to hear the stories of our ancestors echoing under our footsteps. They are the authors. We are the keepers.

"The American School of Tampico was founded in 1917 by Americans who came to the region with the oil companies at the beginning of last century."

My grandmother, Lois Jacqueline Judson Wells, attended this school c1920s-1930s.

  1. Thanks for reminding us of these American schools. These records also hide our ancestor's within their walls.
