Many of us are familiar with Clarendon College in the Texas panhandle. Several of us know someone who was a student, or is a student, there. This year, Clarendon College has 125 reasons to celebrate.

Clarendon College is celebrating 125 years of being in the Texas panhandle.

125 Years Of Education In The Texas Panhandle

In a recent press release, Clarendon College announced that they are planning on celebrating their 125th anniversary. They're going to go big with the celebration.

Clarendon College began in 1898 on Sep 5. It was the Texas panhandle's first college, and it was founded in Clarendon, Texas. Since then, the school not only services the community of Clarendon, but of several communities in the area.

They also offer dual credit courses, and online courses.

A Year Long Celebration

It's not everyday that you turn 125. To celebrate the occasion, Clarendon College is planning a year's worth of celebrations and activities.

The "year of observance" kicks off on Sep 9. There will be a public event held that day from 2 PM to 4 PM at the Vera Dial Dickey Library. It's a meet and greet with several artifacts from the school's past on display.

There are several plans to invite former coaches and athletes back for festivities throughout the upcoming year. The rodeo team is planning on having an observance as part of their NFR send-off.

Also mentioned in the press release are plans for a special dinner theater and the creation of a commemorative coin marking the school's 125 years.

Congratulations to Clarendon College on 125 years. Here's to the next 125.

25 Landmarks of Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle

Can You Guess These Towns From Their Satellite Photos?

I'm always down for a good brain challenge. This one however got the best of me.
It's always a fun time looking up address or cities and seeing them from a satellite point of view. You start pointing out landmarks and things you recognize.

One thing you don't account for however is something looking bigger or smaller than you seemed to think it was. So we started grabbing a bunch of these satellite pictures of cities and towns around Amarillo.

As we looked at them, we thought to ourselves, "how fun would this be to actually have to GUESS what these places are?". So away we went.

Go ahead and try to see how many you can guess correctly!
