These Homes May Distract You During The Park Cities Fourth of July Parade


The Park Cities Fourth of July Parade is one of Dallas’ greatest Independence Day traditions. Residents of the Park Cities and surrounding neighborhoods will come together on Saturday morning to watch people representing various businesses, schools, and community groups march from Town Hall in Highland Park to City Hall in University Park. As they traverse that 2-mile route, they will pass many homes marketed by Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate agents.

The Highland Park Independent School District marked its 100th anniversary last Sunday with a Community Centennial Celebration that included bounce houses, food trucks, student performances, and a museum documenting the district’s history. Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller & Associates were the presenting sponsors of the fun-filled family event.

“The schools have long been the heart of this exceptional community, and our company is pleased to help mark this significant milestone in a meaningful way,” said Mary Frances Burleson, president and CEO of the Ebby Halliday Companies.

Burleson, who graduated from Highland Park High School in 1953, received the district’s Distinguished Alumni Award last spring. She’s also a member of the Highland Park Education Foundation’s board of directors.

Burleson proudly wore her 10th-grade beanie to the Community Centennial Celebration, where she was among the dignitaries who addressed the crowd. The district’s anniversary dates to the opening of Armstrong School in 1914, and Burleson made sure everyone knew that she attended classes in the original building, not the current version of Armstrong Elementary that was built after a 1951 fire.

Besides Burleson, Ebby Halliday Realtors was represented at Sunday’s event by Highland Park High School graduates Ginger Gill, Zach Stein, and Maria Ward, and Highland Park ISD parents Patricia Alcorta and Susan Gamso.

Meanwhile, the contingent from Dave Perry-Miller & Associates included Highland Park High School alumni Susie Germany and Michael Wong, and Highland Park ISD parents Paige Elliott, Kelly Hosch, Amanda Johnson, Melissa Rountree, and Sylvia Scott.

“Our kids, and our business, have thrived in this community,” said Elliott, who sells houses in partnership with her husband, Curt. They are the parents of one HPHS graduate and two current students.

The booth staffed by these Realtors was popular with current students, thanks to the bowls of free candy that sat between such promotional items as Ebby Halliday golf tees and Dave Perry-Miller sports bottles.

Nearby, the district’s Multi-Purpose Activities Center was transformed into a museum that detailed the history of each campus and profiled some of the high school’s notable alums. Among the items on display were the Heisman Trophy won by Doak Walker in 1948 and the Cy Young Awards won by Clayton Kershaw in 2011 and 2013.
