The Velma Freeman Gillespie and Zelma Freeman Root Foundation was established in 1995 by Mrs. Gillespie’s family to honor a deserving teacher at the end of each school year.  Velma Freeman Gillespie and Zelma Freeman Root were twin sisters who both taught in the Borger ISD system for over twenty-five years each.  Mrs. Root came to Borger in 1944. Mrs. Gillespie came to visit her from Arkansas in 1946 and never went back. Mrs. Gillespie taught in Borger Junior High School for 25 years.  Mrs. Root taught at Borger High School for 26 years.  Both retired in 1971.  After retiring from BISD, Zelma Root taught at Frank Phillips Junior College for five years.  Mrs. Gillespie had two sons, Dr. Hamp Gillespie and Dr. Mike Gillespie, who both graduated from Borger Independent School District.  After Velma Gillespie passed away in October 1994, her sons wanted to honor their mother and aunt by establishing the foundation.   The award is given to a deserving teacher in the academic field who possesses the following:  A concern for students and the capability to inspire them The ability and willingness to work cooperatively with colleagues A drive to initiate activities that improve instruction for students An ability to work effectively with different groups in the community The desire to stay informed of current educational theories and practices An ability and willingness to make meaningful contributions to education Examples of innovations started in the nominees’ classrooms.  The 2021-22 campus nominees included Kathryn Sims from Borger High School, Angelica Garay from Paul Belton Elementary, Charissa Drake from Gateway Elementary, Katie Rodriguez from Crockett Elementary, Lauren Hays from Borger Intermediate, and April Couch from Borger Middle School.  This year the decision was very hard for the committee. They could not choose one winner so the award was presented to two teachers.  The Root-Gillespie award went to Charissa Drake and Lauren Hays.  The nomination form for Mrs. Drake described her as ever-changing, charismatic, effective, influential, energizing, and transformative!  Also said of Mrs. Drake, “Have you ever crawled into an igloo to read a book? Crept on all fours into a dark bat cave for a day of learning by flashlight and glow sticks? Entered a pizza parlor to be inspired to write?  Mrs. Drake’s classes have!  She has a never give up attitude and cheers on her students to do the same!” Mrs. Hays is described as an energetic, fun-loving asset to her campus and district.  The nomination form also stated, “A strength of Lauren’s philosophy of teaching is that she does not only teach students for one year, but she cares for and plays a role in their lives after they leave her classroom and campus. She has served two campuses, Gateway, and BIS. It has been fun to watch her be able to teach all her former students again at a different stage of their lives.  Her classroom is a safe place for students to be themselves and have a positive relationship with peers and teachers, while effectively interacting with literature.”    Congratulations to all the candidates!  Thank you for your service!

The Karla Florer, the Florer family and relatives generously donated $6,500 in remembrance of Jarrod Florer, Dale Florer, Kathy Thompson, Karl V. Karlin and Mary Ann Garcia to be spent on books for the Gateway/Crockett Library. All were avid readers, and their legacy will live on through the pages of 2,302 books that have been purchased through their donations which began 14 years ago. This year not only will many additional library books be purchased, but the Florer Family has also graciously agreed to fund next year’s Battle of the Books program! Borger ISD is very appreciative of the Florer Family and their continued support of our Bulldog Readers! We know these books have and will continue to inspire many students.

Borger High School has hit an all-time high for enrollment in their dual-credit program.  For the Fall, 271 students are taking 713 classes.  This is 17% of Frank Phillips College’s entire enrollment.  Also, our students make up over 30% of FPC’s dual-credit enrollment with 271 of their 899 dual-credit students being from Borger High School. In addition, our students are taking 2,091 college credit hours which is 33.4% of all dual-credit hours being taken at FPC.  FPC has a total of 6,254 total dual-credit hours being taken by their 19 cooperating schools.  BHS is at the top of these 19 schools with 271 dual-credit students.  The next closest high school has 92 students enrolled in their dual-credit program.    In May, Borger High School will graduate our first ever Associate of Science Degrees in I & E (Instrumentation and Electrical).  Three students will graduate with this degree, with one being female.  We have 13 students on track to get their Associate of Science degree in May with three more set to finish their degree in the summer following their high school graduation.    If these students all complete their course work, BHS will have 19 graduates with associates degrees compared to the 15 students that graduated with their associates this past school year. Borger High School has also seen tremendous growth in our certification programs.  We have record numbers in all certification classes with 15 cosmetology students, 44 welding students and a combined total of 35 I&E and Process Tech students.  94 total students are working on certificates that will allow them to go directly into the workforce upon graduation.  None of this would be possible without our valuable partnerships with local industry and our local United Way, along with their partner agency Helping Hands.  Borger High School would also like to thank our superintendent and school board for their continued support of this program.  BISD pays for two college classes each semester (starting junior year) for any student wishing to enroll in dual-credit classes.  We are Borger High!
