Congratulations to our own Ta'Niyah Iglehart for being featured in the Wacoan. The story below was highlighted. Full story can be found in the following link:https://www.wacoan.com/meet-the-star-students-4/?fbclid=IwAR1jXT8MMM6ZpyFfFyc-XfwDg9hP1_1Mt5hbzjoDc6sYuW9TuWMPCXjG25U



Ta’Niyah Iglehart
La Vega High School | Plans to attend Texas A&M University

Study tips: Manage your time wisely. Do not wait until the last minute to cram everything in and just take your time. Also, take notes to your preferences and no one else’s.
Someone I look up to: My mom because she is very independent and strong. She basically raised me and all my siblings all by herself. She did a great job at it because all of us turned out great. There are six of us; I am the youngest.
Favorite hangout spot: I am generally a homebody, but if I had to choose, the park. There is one in Lacy Lakeview in Waco. I used to go there all the time as a kid.
Introvert or extrovert: Most definitely an introvert because I have always kept everything to myself. I am more of a reserved person.
Favorite show to binge-watch: Oh, I have a lot! If I had to choose one, I would say ‘Friends.’ Chandler is my favorite. He very sarcastic, and so I am. So I feel like I relate.
What I’m looking forward to about college: I plan on attending Texas A&M’s Mays Business School and majoring in marketing. I want to hopefully become a marketing consultant and then give back to the community. I am excited for a new environment. I know A&M will force me to come out of my shell a little bit. I am excited about getting out of my comfort zone, meeting new people and trying new things.
I also plan on starting a podcast when I go on to A&M and being an advocate for mental health. That will be a side hobby for me. I was thinking of calling it ‘Vitally Green,’ because usually the color green is the symbol for health and ‘Vitally’ is something that is important and necessary.

La Vega Reads in Action

Started 2022 with a challenge for our scholars to read a book for fun. All the books donated to "La Vega Reads" were given to our scholars during their lunch period on Wednesday. So grateful for everyone who supported this venture. We were able to collect a couple hundred books. The scholars were so excited to receive a book of their very own and it was absolutely amazing to hear them talk about their love of reading. What a testament to our English Department!
