The "Love of Wisdom" is prospering in our virtual club-rooms! "Our Harmony School of Excellence Philosophy Club seeks to foster philosophical discussion among interested scholars in an informal, student-friendly environment. It aims to provide scholars an outlet for discourse about philosophical questions that are important to them." said club sponsor Mr. Zapata.
Some of the topics they have discussed so far are (1) The origins and definition of philosophy, (2) Whether art should be censored and we observed this subject matter through the lens of Plato the Philosopher. (3) How one measures the value of human life using Hardin's LifeBoat Ethics philosophy. (4) They have also spoken about the case for conservatism and made a contrast with (5) socialistic government.
We thank not only our scholars for participating in this note worth club but also Mr. Zapata for without his encouragement, unique insights and dedication to our scholars this wonderful opportunity would not be available.
We thank you Mr. Zapata!

College Counseling and Leadership Club
In the spotlight today is this week’s Who’s Who: Ms. Luisa Cantu, our 9th grade Counselor & College & Career Transition Advisor. Ms. Cantu is entering her 2nd year with us at Harmony and we could not be happier! Ms. Cantu holds a Bachelors in Bachelor's of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in Pre-Law from Texas A&M International University.
When asked why she chose this profession she shared she was a student mentor while she was studying TAMIU, graduated and became an academic advisor. It was this position that paved the way for her love of the profession. “I enjoyed helping students succeed on their academic journey. Seeing them graduate after four years is one of the best gratifying feeling of being an mentor/advisor. The feeling of a sense of achievement after you see the student succeed and apply the knowledge to either graduate from college or high school. Is one of my favorite experiences in my career.” said Cantu.
Something that she would like for our Harmony community to know is she are here to provide career guidance, motivation, academic and emotional support not only through out the four years in high school but once students go pursue their dreams after graduation. At Harmony you don’t just stop being a Hawk! We want to keep helping.
Fun fact Ms. Cantu is she is a big fan of Rayados del Monterrey, she hopes the Dodgers win the World Series and she loves to spend time with her family.
Next time you see Ms. Cantu be sure to ask her about the alumni program and what team she is cheering for today!
