WREG Story on Houston vs. Hunger event!


 We had 62 Houston High School Musicians make All-State.  They will be performing this Friday (April 10) or Saturday (April 11) at the Cook Convention Center.  Considering the number of students and their ranking within the groups, this is a significant accomplishment.  We have outstanding students representing our district.  I hope you get a change to go see them perform.

The Center for Economic Education at the University of Memphis, in collaboration with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Memphis Branch and Tennessee State University, sponsored a Personal Finance Challenge Program. The Challenge was an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of Financial Literacy by competing with other students across the state in written and "Quiz Bowl" examinations. In the first round each team of three to four students completed online exams that cover topics in financial literacy: income, money management, credit, and savings and investing. The top eight teams from across the state will be invited to Nashville to compete in the second round, the State Finals. 


Great news!! The Houston High team was invited and placed 4th out of 76 teams in the State of TN.  The team (The Sloths) consisted of Wyatt Dolce, Michelle Myers, and Sigrid Oestergaard. They placed 4th out of 76 teams in the State of TN.
