San Eli HS NHS Members Attend LEAD Conference In D.C. for First Time

A group of National Honor Society (NHS) members from San Elizario High School (SEHS) had the privilege to attend the Leadership Experience and Development (LEAD) conference in Washington, D.C.

“This is the first time our NHS students take a trip like this,” said Wendy Valdes, Physics teacher at SEHS. “As an adviser, it was wonderful to see my students take part in this conference and also experience the history and culture of Washington, D.C. I know they will remember this trip for the rest of their lives.”

The primary focus of the conference is to help students and advisers sharpen their leadership skills, improve school culture and community, and network with peers from all over the U.S.

Students had the opportunity to attend individual workshops that focused on topics such as leadership, student voice, civic engagement, and service.

“This was an eye-opening experience for me,” said Lorenzo Leyva, junior at SEHS. “I met and collaborated with peers from different states, explored the city, rode the subway for the first time, and realized that decisions made in D.C. can affect us here at home in San Eli. I came back with some really good ideas that can help out our school and community.”

After the conference, the group got to visit the National Archives, the Smithsonian Museum of U.S. History, the Washington and Lincoln Memorials, and the Holocaust Museum. They also got free tours of the Capitol and the White House courtesy of Congressman Will Hurd.

The LEAD conference is open to NHS members from across the country. Initially there were 15 students from SEHS that were eligible to attend but due to athletics, academics, or other prior commitments, only nine were able to go.

The conference and tour was held earlier this month, from February 1st through 3rd, 2019.

San Elizario Students Showing School Spirit Through Art

Students from San Elizario High School’s (SEHS) Class of 2020 collaborated with a group of students in need of credit hours on various murals that show school spirit, including one called “The Talon.”

“The Talon” mural is known as an eagle’s large, hooked claw and it is painted on one of the walls of the Vicente Delgadillo Jr. Field House, right in front of the football team’s locker room.

“This mural is special because its purpose is to serve as a symbol of motivation for the football team,” said Karla Ruiz, Art teacher at SEHS.

“As they exit the locker room, it is the first thing they see and the intention is for each player to get pumped before their game.”

The football coaches and players were amazed when they saw the mural that was made for them and appreciate the gesture.

“Our school definitely has some of the most talented students,” said Albert Lopez, SEHS football linebacker.

“Every piece of art that they do is awesome but my favorite is “The Talon” because it best represents us as a team and as a high school.”

San Elizario ISD Introduces College Credit Pathway Initiative

The San Elizario Independent School District (SEISD) is pleased to announce the creation of the College Credit Pathway Initiative to support the various opportunities for post-secondary success offered at San Elizario High School (SEHS).

“A campus that provides any type of college credit opportunity for their students, is a good school,” said Maribel Guillen, SEHS Principal. “We have the best of both worlds at our school. We are still a comprehensive high school with sports and extra-curricular activities while at the same time a Dual Credit institution.”

This initiative will help SEISD to incorporate the new Texas higher education plan, 60X30TX, by streamlining those goals within the post-secondary decision making of students at SEHS.

The College Credit Pathway Initiative is a bold plan as it hopes to ensure 100% of SEHS students are on track to earn a certificate, license or degree by 2030.

Students will be afforded the opportunity to enroll in one of four distinct college credit pathways offered at SEHS:

– Dual Credit (DC) Academy

The Dual Credit Academy at San Elizario High School is a comprehensive program that prepares students for continued success at a post-secondary institution. Students accepted into the academy are provided with an opportunity to earn as many as 43 dual credit hours.

These college credits are based on a focused concentration of courses aligned with El Paso Community College’s (EPCC) core curriculum plan (SB 1091). For school year 2017, dual credit students saved an estimated $70,000 in tuition.

– Advanced Placement (AP) Academy

The Advanced Placement Academy enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. SEHS offers 17 advanced placement courses along with an opportunity to take the AP exam.

A qualifying exam score helps students earn credit or placement at most four-year colleges and universities in the United States. For school year 2017, SEHS students who took and achieved a qualifying score on an AP exam saved an estimated $605,000 in tuition.

– APDC3 (Advanced Placement/Dual Credit Hybrid)

APDC3 allows students to take both dual credit and AP courses to achieve a tailored college ready experience. Students will be allowed the flexibility to select courses based on post-secondary goals while learning the skills to succeed in the workplace.

SEISD officials add, “Research shows that students who take either a dual credit or AP course are much more likely to complete a college degree on time-saving tuition.”

– Western Tech Associates Program

This partnership between Western Tech and SEISD will give SEHS students the opportunity to graduate from high school while at the same time obtaining an Associate’s Degree from Western Tech in the area of Refrigeration, Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.

The cost of this program is usually $36,000 but because this is a Dual Credit instructional offering, this cost is being subsidized by local scholarships from Western Tech and a reduced tuition rate which will be paid for by SEISD.

This financial support ensures that this opportunity will not impact the students’ future federal financial aid and will be offered at zero cost to the families and students participating in the program.

“This initiative will transform the high school experience of our students by laying out a sequence of courses that students will follow while simultaneously being advised and monitored to ensure student success,” said Dr. Tomas Sigala, College & Career Readiness Facilitator for San Elizario ISD.
