The following students were selected to the Area round of auditions, which were held at Levelland High School and Odessa Permian High School on January 11th: Kaleb Hughes on trombone and Daniela Soldevilla on baritone. Kaleb finished 12th of 24 for the TMEA All State audition. The top two were selected to the All State Band. Daniela finished 6th of 11 for the ATSSB All State Band. They only took the top player in her section. Despite not making an All State group, these young people are great examples of outstanding citizens and are to be commended for their hard work and dedication to the Borger Bands.  Way to go Bulldogs!

Mrs. Green, BHS Choir Director, is proud to announce the results from TMEA All-State Choir auditions. Each student performed their very best and represented BHS at the highest level. Four choir students competed at Area, and all four of them were selected to be members of the 2020 TMEA Small School All-State Mixed Choir! Maddison Huval received 1st chair in the Alto section, and Kayleigh Watkins received 4th chair, also in the Alto section. In the tenor section, Efrain Rangel received 2nd chair and Mateo Lopez received 4th chair. An interesting fact... over 60,000 musicians start the All-State process each Fall. Only 1% of them actually make an All-State Ensemble. Borger High School has 4 students in that 1%! In addition, Mrs. Green would like to recognize Kayleigh Watkins as being a 4-year All-State choir member. This is a tremendous success. BHS has had 4 students previously obtain this status. Setting the goal of becoming a 4-year All-Stater, is a daunting task. It takes hard work, dedication, and persistence year after year. Kayleigh absolutely exhibits those qualities, not only in music but in her academics and other activities she is a part of which are volleyball and softball. Kayleigh is also a tremendous leader that encourages both her teammates and competition. Mrs. Green goes on to say, “Many times, she helps those who compete against her to become better musicians, she rejoices in their success, and she cries with them when they fall short. She is an amazing young lady and we will miss her for years to come. However, we are excited to see what the future holds for Kayleigh and know that she has what it takes to be successful!” Congratulations Singing Bulldogs!

Mrs. Hays' Class Gateway Elementary had a little friendly competition for a good cause for its’ latest service project.  Students brought pennies to put in classroom containers for their class to raise money for the Rainbow Room.  Students could also bring in other coins and dollars to “sabotage” other classroom’s containers.  All the pennies were added up for each class and the other coins and paper money were subtracted from the penny total to determine the points for the Penny War Champion.  Through the generosity of students, staff, and families the Penny Wars raised $1147.21 for the Rainbow Room.  Staff volunteers went out and were able to purchase everything on 3 girls' Christmas lists! After shopping for the Rainbow Room kids they adopted, they had $705 leftover to donate to the Rainbow Room to help cover their expenses throughout the year.  Mrs. Cole’s 1st-grade class brought in the most money at $188.43  and will get a cookie party for their efforts.  The Penny War Champion with the most points was Mrs. Hays’ 2nd-grade class and they will get a pizza party.   Way to go Little Bulldogs for giving back to the community!

Ryne Onsurez ·         What year did you graduate?         Graduated in 2016 ·         What do you teach? What do you coach?          I teach Algebra II, both regular and Honors  ·         Highlight a fond memory or two that you have from high school         A fond memory would probably be ending Bushland's 43 game district winning                  streak, and another would be the address to the students I did on the first day of              senior year, and having people coming to me afterward saying I made them                      cry because I opened up and made everyone feel like family and they felt the same            way.   ·        What motivated you to become a teacher          My motivation came from my desire of helping others both inside and outside of the           classroom in growing up and trying to help students understand a difficult concept             such as math while making it more enjoyable for them instead of it giving them                 anxiety.   ·        Tell about how you feel being back at BHS        It feels a little weird being back so young because I had a lot of teachers that are             still  here, so I have to figure out what to call them. But, this is my home and I am             proud of it, so I enjoy being back.         The entire high school is under construction, brand new football field and facilities,             but still the same Borger High School.          What are you most excited about for this year?      I'm most excited about being back home with family and friends and with students I         have known since they were younger, and to try to change the mindset in math by           making it easily accessible to the students.  Just proud to be back as a Bulldog and           hopefully can make a positive impact.

Miles McKinney What year did you graduate?  2012 What do you teach? What do you coach?  Algebra 2/Engineering Math and Football/Wrestling/Track Highlight a fond memory or two that you have from high school.   Winning district 3 years in a row and going to regionals in football.  What motivated you to become a teacher? I saw the impact my wife was making on children through teaching and wanted to join her, speaking into a students' life where I know I could’ve used it at their age.  Tell about how you feel being back at BHS Very strange, yet it feels right. I never thought I would be back in Borger, certainly not teaching and coach but here I am. I wouldn’t rather be doing anything else anywhere else. How have things changed?   Things have changed quite a bit. Obviously, on the outside, everything is changing with the renovation but it’s also different on the inside. The students are a little bit different than they were when I was here. Not in a bad way at all, I just cannot assume they’re going to think or do things in the same way my peers and I did when we were here What are you most excited about for this year?  I am most excited to make a positive impact on students' lives that will improve who they are for the rest of their life.

Kyla Myers   What year did you graduate? 2014  What do you teach? What do you coach?  Kindergarten PE/ Freshman girls basketball and Asst. softball   Highlight a fond memory or two that you have from high school. One of my favorite memories is my junior year softball season. Our team was incredibly close, and win or lose, we were always having a blast. Another great memory of mine is football season. I absolutely loved pep rallies. I was a part of the choir, and we sang the school song in the hallways of BHS every Friday. I simply loved the Friday night lights and cheering for our boys in the student section. What motivated you to become a teacher? I have always loved working with kids and I had a couple of teachers/ coaches that really changed my life. I knew I could get in a few certain classrooms along with the softball field every day and have a teacher/ coach that believed in me more than I believed in myself.  I worked in student ministry every summer that I was in college and I absolutely loved it. Those kids changed my life and it really gave me confirmation that I wanted to be a teacher/ coach. I want kids to feel like they have a safe place around me. I most definitely had that at BHS.   Tell about how you feel being back at BHS It is very exciting. Although I am at Paul Belton during the day, I love being around high school sports again in the afternoon. Just walking in the gym, or hearing the band play “Roll on to Victory,” so many great memories come flooding back and I feel so proud to be back.  How have things changed? Personally, I know I have grown and changed as a person since I have graduated. When it comes to school and sport, there are a lot of different teachers/ coaches, but a lot is still the same. What are you most excited about for this year? I am so excited to return to the softball field. I played all four years under Coach Watkins, and now I am going to get to coach with him. Softball was a huge highlight of my high school days, and to be able to return is just a huge blessing.  I am so grateful to be back. Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog.

What year did you graduate? I graduated in 2015 What do you teach? What do you coach? I teach agriculture. I will be coaching some CDE and LDE teams. Highlight a fond memory or two that you have from high school.  One memory that I will always remember is standing at the football game talking to Mrs. Conaway about going to school to be an Ag teacher while hoping to come back and teach at Borger High School. What motivated you to become a teacher? While I attended Borger High School, I always had a passion for helping the students out with FFA. One day I ran across a quote that I still go by today, “Be who you needed when you were younger.” Unknown. I think this quote is really what made me strive to become a teacher. How do you feel about being back at BHS?  It is an honor being back in the hometown where I grew up. How have things changed? The new remodel of the school is amazing. Borger has a community that pushes to have the best environment for the students to learn. What are you most excited about for this year?  I am most excited about being able to work with students to achieve their goals. There is nothing better than seeing a student be successful in any of the activities that they set out to achieve.
