Borger High School Graphic Design and Fine Art departments recently competed in the State Vase (visual art scholastic event) art contest in San Marcos on April 27th. To even qualify for State students had to compete at the Regional Area competition at Amarillo High and receive top honors there (a “4” on their artwork) Then, judges chose a certain percentage to represent our Region at the state level from the 4’s, which is a very low amount of artwork chosen to move on.  At State level judges once again choose a certain percentage of artwork to receive 4’s, State Medals. All Borger High School students competing brought home State medals! Sophomore, Kayli Spickes was also awarded a $600.00 scholarship in a 3D Div. II workshop she participated in with her unique, creative imagery created with clay. Congratulations to all the students with their exemplary artwork honors! Teachers, Mrs. Kerr, Mrs. Renick, and Ms. Washer are extremely proud of these students.  Hard work, creative edge, technical skills, and mega talent put these students at the top along with the other high school artists across the state. Pictured are:  Junior, Yuvia Mojica, Freshman, Nicole Holguin, Junior, Mason Condren, Junior, Auna Heard, and Sophomore, Kayli Spickes

Bulldog Band Earns Sweepstakes On March 6th, the Mighty Bulldog Band of Borger High represented Borger ISD and Borger High School at the UIL Region 1 Concert and Sight-reading Contest.  This contest was held at Panhandle High School. The Bulldog Concert and Symphonic Bands performed their concert program for a panel of three judges, then sight-read for a separate panel of three additional judges. The concert band, under the direction of Nick Mears, performed a concert program consisting of “Highlander March” by Ployhar, “La Rejouissance” by Handel/ arr. Williams and “Joy” by Ticheli. The symphonic band, under the direction of Kevin Kuehler, performed a concert program consisting of “March: The Nine” by Konagaya, “Voices in the Shy” by Hazo and “American Riversongs” by La Plante. The concert band received Excellent marks from each judge on the concert panel and Superior marks from each judge on the sight-reading panel, while the symphonic band received Superior marks from each judge on both panels. Concert judge Jason Jones of Burnet HS commented, “Wonderful job of bringing out the musical ideas of the selections. I really enjoyed your performance!” Sight-reading judge James Nance of Lubbock said, “Wonderful looking groups… great job today!” This is the first time since at least 1996 that more than one band from Borger High School has received Superior marks at the same contest. As a result of this performance and the Superior rating in marching earned earlier in the fall, the Mighty Bulldog Band was awarded a Sweepstakes trophy. This marks the second consecutive year that Borger High School has earned that honor. Kevin Kuehler, director of bands at Borger High School, commented, “I couldn’t be prouder of a group of kids. They’ve done everything we’ve asked them to do. They are ensuring that the tradition of excellence that is a part of the Borger Band program continues.” Congratulations to all Bulldog Band members for their accomplishments this year at Borger High.

On February 12th, 2019, three members of the Borger High School Choir and Band traveled to San Antonio with their directors Amy Green and Kevin Kuehler to participate in the Texas Music Educators Association and Association of Texas Small School Bands All-State honors groups. Representing the Borger High School Choir were Frankie Barraza and Kayleigh Watkins. Both Frankie and Kayleigh performed with the TMEA Small School Mixed Choir. This choir rehearsed for the first three days of the TMEA Convention in San Antonio, TX. Their rehearsals culminated in an outstanding performance Saturday, February 16, 2019. The clinician of the TMEA Small School Mixed Choir was Dr. Jeffery L. Ames. Ames is a distinguished conductor, composer, and educator, currently serving as Director of Choral Activities at Belmont University. The choir performed nine selections on their concert including G. B. Martini’s Domine Ad Aduvandum Me Festina and three selections from Johannes Brahms’ Zigeunerlieder. Representing the Borger High School Band was Kaleb Hughes, sophomore son of Brian and Traci Hughes. Kaleb was 9th chair trombone in the ATSSB All-State Symphonic Band. This group rehearsed three days and presented a concert on Saturday, February 16th. The clinician of the Symphonic band was Dr. Cody Birdwell, director of bands at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Birdwell earned his undergraduate degree from West Texas State University (now WTAMU) and was director of bands at Texas Tech University. The band played five selections on their concert, including On the Air by Michael Daugherty and The Pathfinder of Panama by John Philip Sousa. These three musicians were selected by a grueling audition process that involved more than 12,000 students from Texas high schools 1A thru 4A. Only 392 musicians were selected in the TMEA All-State Small School Choir and ATSSB All-State Symphonic and Concert Bands. Thanks go to the board and administration of Borger ISD for giving these students this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
