Our Prayers and Thoughts are with the Martinez family.

Today is a sad day for our Vanguard family. Yesterday we lost a devoted educator. Mr. Ezequiel "Zeke" Martinez III touched so many lives. A sponsor of Mock trial, UIL, Cross Country, Robotics, Theatre/Drama, and an instructor of AP Human Geography, World Geography, and Government, Mr. Martinez was a true champion of our students. His witty sense of humor, loud voice, love for the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots, and heart of gold will surely be missed.

Our counseling department is available for our students, parents, faculty and staff during this loss. We will miss him dearly and our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Funeral services will be handled by Brown Funeral Home. Funeral services will be posted as soon as information becomes available.

Events scheduled for Monday and Tuesday will continue and all proceeds will go to Mr. Martinez's family. Monday: Winter Concert (band and choir) at 6pm. Tuesday: Basketball Games: Varsity Girls 5pm, JV Boys 6pm, 7:30 Varsity Boys.
