Athletic Banquet and Board Meeting

by Coy Holcombe.  

The athletic banquet was great. Family, friends, staff members, and school board members shared an evening honoring the accomplishments of our athletes. Every team, including the cheerleaders and student trainers,  was recognized and certificates were presented to participants. The evening culminated with the presentation of the female and male Athletes of the Year. Chelsea Truitt was named the Female Athlete of the Year. Zach Arambula and Zach Keeling were named the Male Athletes of the Year. In addition, the Booster Club awarded 13 scholarships to graduating seniors. Each scholarship was worth $500.

The Courtney Howard Foundation also presented scholarships to some of our seniors. The Booster Club presented the Foundation with a $1,500 donation. Doug Wendel and Chuck Powers presented special awards to Gene Foster and Shelley Compton.

I want to thank all of the Booster Club officers and members for their work in making this banquet a success and for the countless hours that they put in throughout this school year. I would like to thank all the coaches for their time and dedication to the students of EISD. To the families of the athletes,  a special thank you for your support and dedication throughout the year. Also,  I would like to thank all the loyal Bulldog fans for your support in making this a great year. Finally, a special thank you to the student athletes for all their hard work and dedication throughout the year.
