Published: Mon, Apr 30, 2018, 09:41AM CDT

We are celebrating GenTXDay, Friday May 4 during all school lunches.

GenTX Decision Day celebrations will be happening on May 4, 2018 at high schools across Texas. We hope that you join in by celebrating seniors and their postsecondary plans!

How can you help? We would like to raffle off small gift cards for our seniors. If you have any $5-$15 gift cards lying around or wouldn’t mind purchasing one or two, we would LOVE to have you donate them to this event. We will need them dropped at CHS to Linda Adams in student series by Thursday afternoon. An example would be a $10 gift card to Sonic or Starbucks. Just something small and fun.

What happens on GenTX Decision Day?

All students are recognized for their postsecondary plans in front of the entire study body. Think of GenTX Decision Day as a school spirit day, during which we all work together to build excitement and awareness surrounding the college selection and enrollment process. All high school students, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to wear college apparel, decorate doors and classrooms in college themes, post signs and pennants in our community, decorate storefronts, or have college trivia contests — let’s get creative! Download the 2018 Generation Texas Decision Day Guide to plan your #GenTXDay and make it the best in Texas! Click here for more information.

Award
Tarush Verma FROM Coppell High School SELECTED AS AN EMPEROR SCIENCE AWARD WINNER
Published: Mon, Apr 16, 2018, 08:49AM CDT

Tarush Verma from Coppell High School was announced as one of 100 award recipients for the third year of PBS’s and Stand Up To Cancer’s Emperor Science Award program. The program is designed to empower high school students to become the next generation of scientists as they explore careers in cancer research and care through a unique mentoring opportunity. Three of the Awardees are students receiving support for a second year of mentorship, as allowed by the program.

PBS and Stand Up To Cancer, a division of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, received nearly 600 applications from eligible 10th and 11th grade students in 28 states throughout the U.S. who are interested in pursuing a career in science research. Prominent scientists served as judges and evaluated the students’ applications: written essays submitted online this fall, addressing how cancer has affected them or their communities; how science can help find a cure for cancer; and, if they are able to become cancer researchers, what scientific fields would they study and why.
