Students’ achievements show how we’re ‘becoming great all over’

Naturally, I am very proud to work for a school district that has been named a finalist for the Broad Prize for Urban Education twice in as many years.

But while it is wonderful to be recognized for the progress we’re making as a district, many of our students and teachers are also being honored individually for their accomplishments.

Here is just a small sampling of the many accolades earned by members of Team HISD over the past few weeks:

  • Seven graduating seniors from Bellaire, DeBakey, and Westside high schools were named Academic Achievement Scholarship winners by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation
  • Farias Early Childhood Center was recognized by a nationally recognized expert on early childhood education for its successful behavior modification program
  • High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice student Kristin Gerhart won second place in a national JROTC Essay contest.
  • A team of students from Westside High School won the Best Eco-design Award for the second consecutive year at the Shell Eco-marathon Americas.
  • Eight HISD students won either gold or silver medals this year in the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards

You can read more about these and other well-deserved honors by following us on Twitter and looking for the #GreatAllOver hashtag. Go, Team HISD!
