                  CONGRATULATIONS! Borger High School junior, and Graphic Design student, Kayli Spickes has received a Gold Medal in the 2020 Scholastic Art & Writing competition.  Her piece, “Fowl Play” was created in Adobe CC using Photoshop tools.  More than 110,000 students submitted nearly 320,000 works of art digitally in December.  In the first round of competition Kayli received 4 Gold Keys with her digital artwork submitted and 1 Gold Key with a sculpture piece and a Silver Key for another digital piece.  The Gold Keys awarded her allowed them to move on to National competition.  Kayli had to wait until late March to find out how she would do at National level.  Only 3,000 works received a National Medal which places Kayli within the top 1% of all submissions!  Her winning piece will be published on the Online Galleries at  in  June.  Her name will also be listed in the Yearbook 2020, which features a selection of work by National Medalists. Kayli is busy making a video that will be uploaded with her artwork and submitting various forms required of her.  The National ceremony will be held at Carnegie Hall in NYC on June 4, 2020.  Her artwork will be digitally displayed May 29-June 14, 2020.  There are many events scheduled for the National winners, at this time. “I have had the honor and pleasure of working with this young artist since her freshman year, but, heard about her talent early on from the middle school art teacher, Ms. Rhea Ann Morrow.  She has taken Art I under the instruction of Ms. Washer, an currently Adv. Art under Mrs. Renick, and in her 3rd year of Graphic Design with myself, Mrs. Kerr.  Kayli has been to state art competition (VASE) twice and qualified this year as well with a sculpture piece.  She is talented in all areas of art!  She has designed numerous posters for our school, helped fellow teachers with t-shirts and various other art projects throughout the years.  Too many accolades to mention!   She is an asset to our school and community.” Once again, congratulations to this most talented artist, Kayli Spickes!

The Borger High School Speech and Debate Team participated at the Canyon Tascosa swing. Kayli Potts and Lars Nelson both advanced to quarterfinals in the Canyon tournament and on Saturday Lars Nelson again advanced to quarterfinals in the Tascosa tournament. Kayli Potts received enough points qualifying her for TFA state.  She also received a very unique award for an outstanding LD speaker. This award goes to the best overall speaker in the preliminary rounds. It is incredibly difficult to achieve and to our knowledge, it is the first one that Borger has brought home! Congratulations to both outstanding Bulldogs!!

On January 11, 2020, members of the Borger High School Band auditioned for the right to represent the Texas Panhandle as a member of the Texas Music Educators Association and Association of Texas Small School Bands All State Bands. 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!
