The Pony Express

Jose Avila
Hello, my name is Jose Avila and I am currently attending school at Panola College for personal enrichment, and my goal is to eventually become a nurse, hoping my grades and financial position will enable me to do so. I am taking mass communications classes because I am working at a radio station with an excellent crew, and outstanding bosses. I hope to attain a much broader spectrum of the news media and hopefully a better position. I came to Carthage almost by accident. My intentions were to go north - Boston, Massachusetts, to be exact. However, destiny and divine intervention would have it otherwise. I am originally from West Texas - El Paso, went to school there as well and I joined the military soon after, which I consider an opportunistic mistake. I have a degree in micro-computer technology from Southwest Institute of Technology and Design, which allowed me to work in many and interesting companies like Hasbro Inc, UTA Technologies, Phelps Dodge Mining Co., and UPS. Living in Carthage has been a privilege and honor. I have met interesting and very friendly folks. I attend Sunday School at Central Baptist Church with people whom I love and respect. Arising from contempt of life and fortune, I consider myself a blessed individual because I live with a wonderful person who has given me a new outlook on life and introduced me to magnificent, loving and, above all, welcoming people. I guess you can say that when circumstances do not unfold well it is wise to be patient and learn from it; your reward will be great. A great Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius once said, "The happiness of life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature." And that is my goal in life. ANIMIS OPIBUS QUE PARATI
