Alief ISD News and Recognitions

Hastings High School student Tatiyanna Riley was named Houston Chronicle's Girls Athlete of the Week.

Riley was recognized for her performance during the basketball games against Brazoswood and Dawson.

Kerr High School student artwork is on display and for sale in Houston area radio station KPFT.

Students will donate half of the proceeds of the sale to the listener-sponsored station.

In addition, KPFT announcers are giving Alief ISD and Kerr High School shoutouts during the programming day.

Hastings Ninth Grade Center teacher Dan Treat presented at The 9th International Conference on Geographic Naming and Geographic Education in Seoul, South Korea.

The conference was organized by the Northeast Asian History Foundation. Treat presented his paper, “Houston and an Extraordinary Event: Hurricane Harvey and the Korean Community,” which explored the impact of Hurricane Harvey and how the Korean community in Houston responded to the storm.

Treat also conducted field studies during the trip, including observations at the Joint Security Area of the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea.

Congratulations to the following Alief ISD staff members, whose DonorsChoose.org projects were funded!
