My name is David Lopez I graduated in 1976 from St. Emydius school in Lynwood California I still remember my teachers names and the salt and pepper uniforms we all wore . I was the last out of two brothers and a sister to attended that school I even have the same teachers as my siblings I must say all my teachers made a difference in my life even to this day I remember them god bless them all for everything they did for me . And then it was on to Pius X high in Downey Ca. Yep I must say I really enjoyed attending both these schools at times it was rough but it all paid off in the end. They both were very excellent schools to attend and everything really pay it off later in life. Thank you for everything.
