Sharyland High School Senior Juan Colegio Attends J Robinson Wrestling Camp at the University of Wisconsin
Juan Colegio, senior Sharyland High School wrestler, spent the summer at an intensive wrestling camp in Wisconsin. Now entering their 40th anniversary year in 2017, J Robinson Wrestling Camps have trained more than 45,000 wrestlers with a teaching philosophy that focuses on developing technical skill, physical preparation, building mental toughness, and life skills. In 2017, 123 former JROB campers became state champions and 426 more placed at state.
James Penbrook, Sharyland High School Head Wrestling Coach, said “Colegio faced an incredible challenge at JRob. He faced 3 grueling workouts a day for 28 days straight with a great attitude and determination. I couldn't be prouder of him and expect great success for his senior season and for his future. A young man with this type of dedication will go far."
Sharyland High School Senior Adrian Ortega Interns at Johnson Space Center
While most incoming high school seniors are working part-time jobs during the summer, playing summer league sports, or gearing up to write college essays when school begins, one Sharyland High School student had a very unique experience. Adrian Ortega was selected to participate in the High School Aerospace Scholars. Funded by the Texas legislature, HAS is an interactive online learning experience highlighted by a weeklong program at Johnson Space Center. Selected students are encouraged to study math, science, engineering, and computer science by interacting with engineers at the Johnson Space Center.
Adrian says, “Making the decision to apply for HAS was quite possibly the best thing I could have done in my life! I was really unsure of whether I should apply or not, but in the end I did and am glad of my decision because it opened my eyes to what I truly want to pursue as a career. My goal is to go to college and study to become a scientist or a researcher one day. This STEM based program guided me towards making that decision.”
Adrian is a member of the Mighty Rattler Band, National Honor Society, and the President of the BCM Club. BCM stands for Books, Comics, and Movies. He is also a member of the Robotics Team. Nicole Cruz, SHS librarian states, “Adrian has been a frequent library patron all four years. He is an outstanding scholar and avid reader. I know he will definitely be successful with his future endeavors. He exhibits all the Rattler Core Values-leadership, excellence, pride, responsibility, and respect.”
