21 years of Pride at Colleyville Heritage High School
Throughout this week, you have seen several recognitions of the wonderful things students at CHHS have accomplished. Last week, we were able to announce the TWENTY students that were recognized as National Merit Semi-Finalists. This number is more than CHHS and GHS combined last year. This is a huge accomplishment by these students, and truly is a representation of PRIDE from these students and teachers. I look forward to many more records being broken this year at CHHS.
Speaking of recording breaking, I was very proud of the Panther PRIDE on display at the football game last Friday night. It was truly a special night for all of those involved. Beyond the success of the football team, all of our student performances were amazing and represented our school with PRIDE. The volleyball team is rolling right along in their district schedule leading to their big matchup with our crosstown friends tonight at 5:30pm. I am truly amazed every day with our students and the sense of community in supporting each other with every aspect of our school. Next week is our homecoming week, which is always a great time to show our Panther PRIDE. I look forward to seeing everyone at those events. Have a great weekend and GO PANTHERS!!

To me, pride represents an ideal that everyone at CHHS should strive for, to reach excellence in everything you do and to always give your all. The word pride almost issues a challenge to those who understand it, how proud can you make your friends, your family, your teachers, and your school as a whole. At CHHS, I feel that many people embrace this ideal and eventually reach it by the end of their four years. Countless students make this a goal in all different fields, and those who really commit achieve it every year, and that is something to be proud of.
