Debate Students Excel
Alex Estrada, Joseph Estrada, Alex Slider, and Katie Erwin were state finalists. Alex and Joseph Estrada were the State Runner up in all of Texas both public and private. They were also the 3rd (Joseph) and 5th (Alex) Speaker. There hasn't been a sophomore (Joseph) in the state finals in over two decades. Alex Slider and Katie Erwin came in 9th place at the state meet. This is the first time in 30 years that Austin High had two policy teams make elimination rounds at the state meet. Please congratulate them
Austin High finished its competition season this year over spring break in Lubbock, Texas at the 20th annual Viva Aztlan Festival. We took 2nd place overall in our division and brought home a 2nd trophy for the best costumes in our division. Viva Aztlan has a unique competition format in which each dance company presents a non-stop mini-show, which means crazy backstage costume changes and all! The beauty of this format is that you cannot win a trophy because you have a few outstanding entries...the entire show and all dancers must work together to guarantee success.
Austin High School Class of 2014 Scholarship Awards Survey
We collect the scholarship awards for all graduating seniors. We need to you complete this form for EACH scholarship you have been offered, even if you are not accepting the award. Examples would include college acceptance letters with an award listed. Please do this as you hear about them so that we can keep the list current, the district office wants to be informed of all scholarship dollars won for each high school. The student names and scholarships will also be listed in the graduation brochure, so this will help us make sure they are included. Thank you for your help.
