Today's Features

  • Anita Vigil, a 1987 graduate of Mora High School, will be inducted into the Abilene Christian College Hall of Fame during homecoming in October.

    The women’s basketball standout and six others will be inducted into the Texas college’s hall of fame for their accomplishments in sports ranging from baseball to track.

    In order to be nominated for the honor, an individual must have been out of college for at least 10 years. Nominees are then voted on by a selection committee. Vigil won the admiration of the committee and others who know her work.

  • And then just out of the blue, as they say, comes a long letter from one of our so many (about 60) kids that lived and worked with us during our busy dude ranch/cattle ranch operation. What a happy time to reminisce about life, the life and times of an important era in these many teenagers’ history.
