One has traveled around the world serving his country, while the other has never ventured far from home while serving his community. But both were honored Oct. 5 when they were inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame at Rowland High School.
Patrick Hosterman joined the Navy when he graduated in 1988. And he’s been there ever since, serving many deployments overseas, including Operation Desert Shield, then Desert Storm.
John Molla grew up in a Rowland family. His dad, John Sr., actually graduated with Rowland High’s first graduating class in 1966. An aunt and uncle are also Rowland grads.
“I’ve been a Raider my whole life, the high school is home to me,” Molla said.
In fact, the popular math teacher has been at the local high school for 26 years, four as a student and 22 as an instructor.
In 2008, Molla was named the district’s teacher of the year.
