We held a special dedication ceremony for our new Guillermo “Willy” Ybarra Playground, and many members of the Ybarra Family were on hand! Thank you so much Bob, Lucy, and the many family and friends who helped honor and celebrate Willy’s legacy!

He was a beloved teacher,counselor, and school administrator for 28 years in the Ysleta Ind. School District before his retirement in 1996. Willy lived in San Antonio for the last 16 years of his life. The new playground at Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home is a wonderful tribute to Willy’s love of children.
