About the Author: Omar Holguin, Jr. was a member of the Woodland Heights' Centennial Committee (2006-2007). His efforts have resulted in a historical marker for the neighborhood, an article in the German-Texan Heritage Journal, and a photostory presentation at the Centennial Tea Party. He is a teacher for the Galena Park School District and is the father of two young boys. But it was his wife who first recognized that the Woodland Heights was a good place to live and raise a family.
