UTMB Athlete of the Week

Congratulations to Ball High senior Byron Sweeny for being named KPRC 2's UTMB Health Athlete of the Week!

“Byron is a great leader - he’s energetic, he has a lot of experience on varsity, he kind of unifies the team, and he’s one of those guys the kids lean on for advice, and he’s just a kid that the coaches can count on," Coach Bennight said.

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month!

“Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”

DAR Announces ‘Patriots of the Revolution’ High School Essay Contest


In preparation for the 250th anniversary of the nation’s founding, the George Washington Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has launched the "Patriots of the American Revolution“ DAR High School Essay Contest. This contest focuses on the men and women who figured in the events of the American Revolution (1773 – 1783), and it is hoped that students will find Patriots to write about who will interest and inspire them.


This contest is open to students in grades 9 through 12. Essays from students from all grades will be judged, with one winning essay chosen at each grade level. Winning entries will be submitted to the state competition.


Essays should be 800 to 1,200 words in length. The deadline to enter is Nov. 15.


Each student participant receives a certificate of participation from the chapter, and the chapter winners receive a bronze medal and certificate set. Winners will be recognized at the George Washington Chapter tea in February.


For an information packet, please email chapter American History Chair Carol Langston at clangston@gc.edu.
