11 of the Funniest High School Senior Yearbook Quotes

In recent weeks, Iron Cactus in Stonelake and Hill Country Galleria have been speaking with a few parents who are active with their Project Graduation. So we decided to launch a program that will help local Austin high school Project Graduation groups raise much needed funds throughout the year. Therefore, we have declared ourselves as the Official Sponsor of Project Graduation for the graduating class of high schools in Austin. [Note: If you’re Project Graduation would like to be considered for a fundraising effort, please email projectgraduation@ironcactus.com . Open to Austin-area high schools only for now.]

From October 26 to October 30, we are donating 10% of food sales after 5 p.m. at Iron Cactus North Austin (10001 Stonelake Blvd.) to Westwood High School’s Project Graduation. Log in to Facebook and see details here.

Since we’re talking high school graduation, we thought it fitting to compile 11 of the funniest high school senior yearbook quotes we found on the interwebs. [Editor’s note: Hopefully, none of these are your kids.]

Remembering the Heroes of 9/11

It’s been 13 years today since the Twin Towers in New York City crumbled to the ground and forever changed our way of life. As we commemorate 9/11, we, at Iron Cactus, salute our own brave firefighters.

Last Sunday, we sponsored a team of firefighters, who honor their fallen brethren by climbing the equivalent of 110-stories at a building in downtown Austin. What is known as the Memorial Stair Climb for Texas Firewalkers, our team and the rest of the firefighters who participated, carried their full firefighting gear walking up 110-stories. They do this Memorial Stair Climb every year to honor the 343 brave heroes of the FDNY. Say thank you and hug a firefighter today. Never Forget!
