Former international student Aurelio Ramos Johnson of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, reminisced with current and former SWTJC instructors during a visit to the Uvalde campus on Nov. 21.

"Aurelio was a part of a steady flow of students from northern Mexico we had come through our farm and ranch management program in the 1970s and 1980s," SWTJC President Dr. Ismael Sosa, Jr., said. "I got to know most of them pretty well during my time as foreign student advisor."

Johnson, who graduated from SWTJC in 1990 with an associate of applied science degree in farm and ranch management continues to work in the ranching business running primarily Beefmaster and Simmental cattle on his ranch near Hermosillo and serving as a consultant on other ranches across the state of Sonora.

He was in Texas this week purchasing some Beefmaster cattle from a producer in the Brenham area and planned a visit to Uvalde in conjunction with his business trip.

"I wanted to come to the college to visit President Sosa and he got several of my former instructors to join us," Johnson said. "I hope to send my son to college here when he finishes high school in a couple of years."

Former SWTJC instructor Tom Schleising, along with current instructors Dr. Pete Winn and Les Brieden, met with Ramos who was a student at SWTJC from 1988-1990.
