                     It’s encouraging to know that even in the bleakest of times our impact on students, and likewise their impact on us, still shines through. Earlier last week, Borger High School Junior, Kayli Munn became the newest Bulldog to receive the National Speech and Debate Association’s coveted Academic All-American achievement. This make her 1 of 3 BHS students that currently hold the title. Munn earned this from her outstanding talents in Original Oratory, Informative Speaking, and Domestic Extemporaneous Speaking. Unlike the other students that have achieved this, Munn currently participates in speaking events only which requires a completely different skill set than their debate counterparts. Munn sets the bar at a high level for creativity, poise, and humility. She has dedicated countless hours to her craft, and it shines through in her performance. There is rarely a tournament where she doesn’t find her way into the winner’s circle in one or more events. Congratulations to Kayli for conquering this great milestone!  Submitted by BHS Instructor Steven Watkins

                  CONGRATULATIONS! Borger High School junior, and Graphic Design student, Kayli Spickes has received a Gold Medal in the 2020 Scholastic Art & Writing competition.  Her piece, “Fowl Play” was created in Adobe CC using Photoshop tools.  More than 110,000 students submitted nearly 320,000 works of art digitally in December.  In the first round of competition Kayli received 4 Gold Keys with her digital artwork submitted and 1 Gold Key with a sculpture piece and a Silver Key for another digital piece.  The Gold Keys awarded her allowed them to move on to National competition.  Kayli had to wait until late March to find out how she would do at National level.  Only 3,000 works received a National Medal which places Kayli within the top 1% of all submissions!  Her winning piece will be published on the Online Galleries at artandwriting.org  in  June.  Her name will also be listed in the Yearbook 2020, which features a selection of work by National Medalists. Kayli is busy making a video that will be uploaded with her artwork and submitting various forms required of her.  The National ceremony will be held at Carnegie Hall in NYC on June 4, 2020.  Her artwork will be digitally displayed May 29-June 14, 2020.  There are many events scheduled for the National winners, at this time. “I have had the honor and pleasure of working with this young artist since her freshman year, but, heard about her talent early on from the middle school art teacher, Ms. Rhea Ann Morrow.  She has taken Art I under the instruction of Ms. Washer, an currently Adv. Art under Mrs. Renick, and in her 3rd year of Graphic Design with myself, Mrs. Kerr.  Kayli has been to state art competition (VASE) twice and qualified this year as well with a sculpture piece.  She is talented in all areas of art!  She has designed numerous posters for our school, helped fellow teachers with t-shirts and various other art projects throughout the years.  Too many accolades to mention!   She is an asset to our school and community.” Once again, congratulations to this most talented artist, Kayli Spickes!

    Jacob Garcia has been mentoring a young Borger Bulldog at Crockett Elementary this school year.  Jacob volunteered for the mentor program because he wanted to make a difference in the lives of young kids.  He wanted to be a role model and give back to his community and his school district.  Jacob and his mentee, Austin Coffee, hit it off on the first day and have become good friends.  When Jacob visits Austin, they read books, work in the science lab, draw pictures, have lunch, and play volleyball and basketball on the playground and in the gym.  Austin's mother said that Friday is his favorite day of the week because Jacob comes to see him.  It has been an awesome experience for both mentor and mentee.   Jacob said, "It is lifechanging and makes me feel great that I can do this and hopefully inspire others to do the same.  I hope Austin will always remember me and the times that we spent together."  Jacob is a welder and has played football and baseball for the Borger Bulldogs.  He spends his summers working for the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority  and enjoys fishing in his free time which is something Austin also likes to do.  BISD and Borger High School want to thank Jacob Garcia for being a great role model and caring about the young Bulldogs in our district!  We are proud of you, Jacob!

The Borger High School Speech and Debate Team participated at the Canyon Tascosa swing. Kayli Potts and Lars Nelson both advanced to quarterfinals in the Canyon tournament and on Saturday Lars Nelson again advanced to quarterfinals in the Tascosa tournament. Kayli Potts received enough points qualifying her for TFA state.  She also received a very unique award for an outstanding LD speaker. This award goes to the best overall speaker in the preliminary rounds. It is incredibly difficult to achieve and to our knowledge, it is the first one that Borger has brought home! Congratulations to both outstanding Bulldogs!!
