  • Sydney Nguyen applied for, interviewed, and was awarded Harding University’s Trustee Scholar Award, which is a merit-based scholarship. They select ONLY 25 people out of all the applicants and provide them with a full ride! They consider GPA, SAT scores, work experience, communication skills, character, and ambition. Congratulations to Sydney and her family!!

  • Eashana Arora will be attending the University of Texas at Dallas majoring in Biochemistry. She was awarded the Academic Excellence Scholarship (AES), awarded based on a holistic review, through which she will receive a full ride!! Congratulations to Eashana and her family!!

  • Three of our New Tech High @Coppell players, Cason Cole, Ryan Chen, and Josh Thomas, held the Stop Hunger Charity Tournament this Friday benefiting Mission Arlington, helping to supply food-insecure individuals and families with groceries. After learning about food insecurity in the US in their AP Human Geography class, these student athletes, along with classmates Bhargav Vendula and AJ Bains, decided to work together to organize, market, and run a charity tennis tournament. It is very impressive that 5 Freshmen boys would be able to do this independently with little adult involvement. Thank you to Coach Foster for his support and all the Coppell Tennis players who participated.

Your Serve

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR PARENTS who have graciously volunteered their time to make sure our players have the best possible experience. This includes the entire Booster Club Board and all the parents who have volunteered to help with the website, social media, communication, pictures, tournaments, flower sales, Senior Night, Homecoming, the tennis banquet and countless other things. It truly takes a lot to run this program properly. Thank you so much to those who show up to the booster club meetings, the banquet meetings, and the matches! We have some parents who continually step up to serve and support, and their contribution is very much appreciated.
