Riverside High earns regional awards in Environmental Engineering, Applied Mathematics

The month of April has been good to Riverside High School, as a team of students and a Ranger program each earned regional awards in the fields of environmental engineering and applied mathematics, one of which resulted in a $3,000 cash prize from the Prudential Foundation.

The most recent recognition took place Saturday, April 20, during the City of El Paso Environmental Services Department’s annual Earth Day celebration in downtown El Paso.

During this event, officials hosted the first-ever Environment Excellence Recognition Program (EERP) awards ceremony, a legacy program initiated by state Sen. Jose Rodriguez’s Senate District 29 Environment Advisory Committee.

Among the winners was Riverside High School’s Solar Technology program, which won the EERP award in the category of Education.

“The goal of the EERP is to identify, articulate and strengthen a regional culture of conservation, preservation and best practices for the environment,” said state Sen. Rodríguez. “The program will create an archive of leading projects, practices, and actors in the field, hopefully inspiring us all to do more in our areas of influence.”

The Riverside Solar Technology program, which began in 2017, is the first public high school in the nation to offer the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) associate photovoltaic certification.

With the NABCEP certification, students are able to enter the workforce anywhere in North America in the solar energy industry upon graduating from high school.

Earlier this month, a team of five Riverside High School students won first place at the Prudential Math Challenge, where high-school teams from the regions of Brewster, Culberson, El Paso, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, and Presidio counties competed to solve a real-world problem using applied mathematics.

The Prudential Math Challenge forms part of the 2019 STEAMx competitions hosted by STTE (Success Through Technology Education) Foundation, Workforce Solutions Borderplex, and The Prudential Foundation.

During the competition, participating teams were sequestered for 12 hours and challenged to research and solve a real-world scenario, then present their findings in a research paper.

In order to win, the Riverside students excelled in two separate 12-hour rounds of competition, then addressed an additional problem with findings and another research paper.

By winning the challenge, the Riverside team comprised of Francisco Ontiveros, Ashley De La Rosa, Raul Ramos, Edna Rodriguez, and Karemy Cruz won a $3,000 prize from the Prudential Foundation.

Riverside High School’s National Honor Society Awarded YISD’s President’s Award

The Ysleta ISD Board of Trustees honored a group of service-oriented students who took time out of their summer break to provide much-needed assistance at Pebble Hills Elementary School.

Pebble Hills Principal Stacy Vasquez put out a call this summer to high schools, asking for volunteers to help paint classrooms at her campus.

The call was heeded by 19 members of Riverside High School’s National Honor Society (NHS), who showed up in force to help school officials paint more than 60 classrooms in only three days.

Ms. Vasquez said,”Had it not been for the dedicated volunteer work provided by these exceptional Riverside Rangers,  her classrooms would not have been ready for the new furniture provided for students this year. These students are a shining example of the hard work, dedication, and service excellence that we are emphasizing throughout our district, and we applaud them on a job well done!”

Receiving the President’s Award at the board meeting was NHS President Victoria Rodriguez, who accepted the award on behalf of the Riverside High School National Honor Society.

The President’s Award is given by the President of the Board of Trustees to a YISD student who has demonstrated exceptional and/or innovative, out-of-the-ordinary service to others, particularly those within the YISD community.
