In Southside ISD, student Robert Posada finally found a safe place to belong. Robert moved to Southside to escape dangerous surroundings in California. He is now flourishing as a successful senior, inspirational role model, skilled welder, and dedicated volunteer at Southside High School. He considers some of his Southside teachers to be family, like Priscilla Mota. Through friendship and guidance from SHS teachers, Robert will be the first in his family to graduate from high school, and he will begin college in the fall! This Southside Cardinal credits his school and its Cardinal traits, “Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible” for saving his life and helping him find his place and his calling.
