Congratulations to Borger High School Senior Jaziel Torres, recipient of the 2019 - 2020 T. E. Ward Award for athletics. Torres played football, was in powerlifting and he was the baseball manager. The T. E. Ward Award is given in honor of Mr. T. E. Ward, an outstanding educator, coach, and administrator for 40 years in the Texas school system. Trickey Edward Ward was named for Dr. Edward Trickey who delivered him in St. Genevieve, Missouri on October 9, 1903. Mr. Ward graduated from Texas Christian University, lettered 4 years in football and was outstanding in baseball and track.  He later obtained his Masters Degree at West Texas State University. Coach Ward came to Borger in 1945 after having coached previously at Ranger High School, Ranger Junior College, Daniel Baker College, Brownwood High School, and Iraan High School.  Coach Ward was an important part of Borger’s athletic program for 24 years.  He was Head Coach and Athletic Director for 6 years with a record of 31 wins, 26 losses, and 3 ties.  His best record of 8 wins and only 2 losses was in 1946.  Later he taught physical education, was the Boys Counselor and served as Athletic Business Manager. He was always very active in the Texas High School Coaches Association and in 1965 was also inducted into the Texas High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame. In 1972, shortly after his death, Borger High School, along with the Borger News Herald, instituted the T. E. Ward Award to go to our outstanding senior athlete in memory of this outstanding man who had meant so much to the Borger school system.  Qualifications to be nominated are as follows: 1.       Outstanding senior male athlete. 2.       Must exemplify the highest moral character, behavior and leadership. 3.       Regulate his actions at all times so that he will be a credit to the team, school, and                        community. 4.       Always display good sportsmanship  by being modest in victory and gracious in defeat. The head coaches can nominate, and vote for, one athlete.

Borger ISD would like to recognize the 2020 recipient of the Lynley Herbert scholarship, the E.J. Jeep Webb Award and the Ann Prock Scholarship for softball - Kayleigh Watkins.  Lynley Herbert was full of life and love…love for her family, her friends, Borger High and most of all for the Lord.  She was a bright light in the halls of BHS, involved in as many activities as possible…active in sports, cheerleading, FCA, being a class officer…a Bulldog through and through.  Lynley always had time for anyone who needed a listening ear, a word of encouragement or just someone to be there. In March of 2001, the Lord called Lynley home.  Because of all she had done for others during her short time on this earth, a scholarship was set up to honor her memory and how she lived her life.  To encourage other BHS students to live the same way. E.J. “Jeep” Webb graduated from Tulia High School and went on to play basketball and football in Canyon at West Texas State.  He has coached at various towns in the panhandle and has been in Borger since 1966.  While at BHS, he coached football, track, cross country and girls’ basketball.  He is currently active in working many track & field meets across the United States.  He still drives many of the athletic teams to their contests and is very interested in their achievements.  Coach Webb has been and always will be there for kids. He always gives an encouraging word and asks that they give their very best as young ladies and gentlemen.   Qualifications to be nominated are as follows: 1.         Outstanding senior female athlete.  2.         Must exemplify the highest moral character, behavior and leadership.   3.         Regulate her actions at all times so that she will be a credit to the team, school,                    and community.   4.         Display good sportsmanship at all times by being modest in victory and gracious in              defeat.  The Head Coaches of each sport of BHS can nominate, and vote for one athlete to be the recipient. Ann and Clinton Prock are longtime supporters of the Lady Bulldog Softball program.  When Ann passed away, Clinton set up a scholarship for a softball player in her name.  Clinton remains a huge part of Lady Bulldog softball.

On Friday, May 1st, Borger High School administrators celebrated academics with students and parents in a unique way.  Due to the current situation with Covid-19, the traditional Academic Awards Banquet, which is held each year to honor the top ten academic performers in each class at BHS was cancelled.  Cancelling the banquet was a true disappointment as this event is widely anticipated by students, parents, family members, board members and administrators. In lieu of the banquet, Mrs. Conaway and Mr. Ammerman delivered large balloon bouquets to each of the 40 students at their homes all over the county.  Deliveries started before 10 am on Friday morning.  The last delivery was made after six o’clock in Stinnett.  The main feature of the balloon bouquet was a large number that corresponded to the rank of the student receiving this honor.  Mr. Welch, BISD Superintendent, joined the BHS team to deliver the bouquets to seniors.  Throughout the day, there were countless smiles from students, parents and families.  This celebration also acted as a reunion of sorts as the administrators have not seen any of these students since before Spring Break.  Mrs. Conaway and Mr. Ammerman would like to thank Lisa Rodriguez for always helping to make their crazy ideas a reality.  They would also like to thank Chocolate Tulip (517 North Main Street) for their professionalism and kindness.  They did an outstanding job having everything ready and organized and the bouquets were beautiful. BHS will be sharing the photos each day this week through Thursday.  We will share a different grade level each day and announce the valedictorian and salutatorian on Friday.  There will be a full virtual banquet released next week featuring BHS graduate and former BISD School Board Member Dave Brandon, as the special guest speaker.
