Names and Photos of 1974 Graduating Class of Rio Grande City Texas

I noticed a few days ago that The Portal To Texas History had recently added a lot of issues of the Rio Grande City Herald.  I thought to my self, lets do a quick search. I entered my father in laws name Heraclio Perez and on the first result I found a picture of him as well as all of the graduates of the Rio Grande City High School Class of 1974. This is the link to the high quality images. Rio Grande City High School Class of 1974. I took the time to transcribe all the names and post them here. Happy browsing!
