For the third year in a row, Eustace Middle School has won the district UIL Academic Contest. For the second year in a row, EMS has scored over 1,000 points in the process. The point totals for the schools in our zone are as follows:
1st Place Eustace 1145 points
2nd Place Mildred 894 points
3rd Place Rice 680 points
4th Place Malakoff 451
The district competition is divided into a west zone and an east zone to avoid excessive travel for districts.
I would like to congratulate all the students and staff at the Middle School for their hard work and dedication in preparing for this competition.
I want to extend a special thank you to Paul McKinney, Leanne Carlson, and all the volunteers from the First Baptist Church in Eustace for allowing us to host this competition at the church and for all their help in making the day a great success for all those involved.
