(Sing to the tune of "Pass it On" by Kurt Kaiser)

I wish for you my friend this happiness that I've found; (echo) that I've found
You can depend on it, it matters not where you're bound; (echo) where you're bound
I'll shout it from the mountain top - MPA!
I want the world to know, the school of love has come to me,
And now I'll pass it on.

In memory of beloved MPA teacher, Mr. Michael Hicks (October 14, 1946 - April 17, 2019)...


Memorial's building opened in 1958 making it one of the oldest buildings in the Garland Independent School District. The name "Memorial" was chosen to honor war veterans from World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. Throughout most of its history, Memorial housed a traditional middle school campus. However, many changes have occurred throughout its long history, including numerous name changes.
