Fort Sam Houston ISD - Journalism Students Attend National Conference in Chi-Town
Cole photography and journalism students traveled to attend and compete at the JEA/NSPA national journalism conference in Chicago with over 6300 students from across the United States! Junior, Raquelle Bennett competed in the Photography Portfolio division at the conference and was one of only three students in the country to receive a Superior Rating.
The East Central Indie Festival (ECIF) was an outrageous success. Thanks to the community partnerships and EC Campus Clubs for taking part. This was the final project for EC Music Biz. The students designed, marketed, and hosted this festival (the only HS indie music fest in the US). Next year, watch for other exciting Music Biz events in addition to ECIF. In 2018-19 the students will bring a World Music Fest and Cultural Expo and a Country Music Fest (around Rodeo season).

East Central High School students competed this week in Skills USA Competitions. They competed in a variety of events such as: Building search, prepared speech, First aid/ CPR, Quizbowl and Felony traffic stop. Original post on ECISD's Facebook page here.
East Central High School PALS (Peer Assistance Leadership & Service) traveled to Round Rock High School to the State PALS Conference and showed Central Texas what they are made of! The EC PALS had two groups of 7 and presented workshops on two different topics: "If You Really Knew Me" was a workshop that allowed PALS from across the state to let their guards down and face difficulties and challenges that they may have tried to bury. Our EC PALS created a very helpful and nurturing environment in that workshop and soon generated the most "BUZZ" around the Conference!
"Fighting Through The Storm" was a workshop solely based on Stress Management and how to deal with the rigors of growing up with all of the daily challenges at school coupled with personal challenges at home. Our EC PALS created a very fun and vibrant atmosphere and those attending left with a better feeling than when they came in.
All in all, everyone in our district and community should be very proud of the way these students conducted themselves and the pride in which they represented their Hornet Pride!
