On Friday, May 1st, Borger High School administrators celebrated academics with students and parents in a unique way.  Due to the current situation with Covid-19, the traditional Academic Awards Banquet, which is held each year to honor the top ten academic performers in each class at BHS was cancelled.  Cancelling the banquet was a true disappointment as this event is widely anticipated by students, parents, family members, board members and administrators. In lieu of the banquet, Mrs. Conaway and Mr. Ammerman delivered large balloon bouquets to each of the 40 students at their homes all over the county.  Deliveries started before 10 am on Friday morning.  The last delivery was made after six o’clock in Stinnett.  The main feature of the balloon bouquet was a large number that corresponded to the rank of the student receiving this honor.  Mr. Welch, BISD Superintendent, joined the BHS team to deliver the bouquets to seniors.  Throughout the day, there were countless smiles from students, parents and families.  This celebration also acted as a reunion of sorts as the administrators have not seen any of these students since before Spring Break.  Mrs. Conaway and Mr. Ammerman would like to thank Lisa Rodriguez for always helping to make their crazy ideas a reality.  They would also like to thank Chocolate Tulip (517 North Main Street) for their professionalism and kindness.  They did an outstanding job having everything ready and organized and the bouquets were beautiful. BHS will be sharing the photos each day this week through Thursday.  We will share a different grade level each day and announce the valedictorian and salutatorian on Friday.  There will be a full virtual banquet released next week featuring BHS graduate and former BISD School Board Member Dave Brandon, as special guest speaker. @ChocolateTulipFlowers #BorgerISD #WeAreBorgerHigh #top10 Freshmen Top 10 2019-2020 1.      Benjamin Madden 2.      Natalie Clark 3.    Aaliyah Lujan 4.    Aimoree Stevens 5.    Emma Miller 5.    Kelby Peralez 7.    Keagan Lopez 8.    Linzey Torres 9.    Geraldine Medina 10.  Cruz Saucedo

                     It’s encouraging to know that even in the bleakest of times our impact on students, and likewise their impact on us, still shines through. Earlier last week, Borger High School Junior, Kayli Munn became the newest Bulldog to receive the National Speech and Debate Association’s coveted Academic All-American achievement. This make her 1 of 3 BHS students that currently hold the title. Munn earned this from her outstanding talents in Original Oratory, Informative Speaking, and Domestic Extemporaneous Speaking. Unlike the other students that have achieved this, Munn currently participates in speaking events only which requires a completely different skill set than their debate counterparts. Munn sets the bar at a high level for creativity, poise, and humility. She has dedicated countless hours to her craft, and it shines through in her performance. There is rarely a tournament where she doesn’t find her way into the winner’s circle in one or more events. Congratulations to Kayli for conquering this great milestone!  Submitted by BHS Instructor Steven Watkins
