The Official French High School Alumni Association Website

Beaumont, Texas

We all remember our Jr. high days.
I know my days at Bowie were wonderful and I will cherish them always,
just as I do my days at FHS. I hope these few pages
and pictures bring back a lot of good memories for you too.


The above was taken out of one of the year books.
So we know how and when Bowie Opened.
WHEN did it close? What was it in '86/'87 when French closed?
I heard FHS was empty for a while.
I know Bowie became French Elem. and Bowie moved in to the French building on Concord.
And became Willie Ray Smith Middle School.
But not sure what year that was..

I remember Mr. Rodemacher with fond memories.
Mr. Rodemacher passed away Aug. 9, 1989
