Students walk in front of the stained glass from the three previous Port Arthur high schools at Memorial High School in Port Arthur on Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2007. After 37 years, the PAISD was released from the desegregation order on Tuesday. During segregation, Port Arthur ISD high schools were (from left to right) Stephen F. Austin, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.
