IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  In looking back at your classroom and sports performance this past school year, what have you learned about yourself?  Hopefully you tasted some success and learned from your mistakes.  But more importantly, I hope you have developed a work ethic and attitude that will benefit you going forward.  Eleven-time Grand Slam tennis champion Novak Djokovic admitted in Sports Illustrated that “there were days and times of my career when I went through a lot of doubt.”  So whether you are a graduating senior or just starting your high school experience, know there will be tough times and a lot of doubt.  No student-athlete is exempt!  Not even the most successful ones.

GHS Named to College Board Honor Roll

The College Board is announcing the 2015 Gaston Caperton Honor Roll, a list of 130 districts across the U.S. that are being recognized for creating opportunities for traditionally underrepresented students. The districts featured on the honor roll have expanded access to higher education by providing students with rigorous academic offerings and innovative college-preparation programs. Districts on the honor roll demonstrate significant and consistent growth in the number of underrepresented and low-income students taking college-level courses, and applying to four or more colleges.

There is no application to be on the Honor Roll; instead the College Board looks across multiple data sets to identify recipients. To be included in the Honor Roll, districts must have:

  1. Increased the number of underrepresented students who took the SAT®;
  2. Increased the number of underrepresented students who took an AP® course and exam;
  3. Increased the number of underrepresented students who were on-track for college, as demonstrated by scoring 1550+ on the SAT;
  4. Increased the number of underrepresented students who scored a 3+ on an AP Exam; and
  5. Increased the number of underrepresented students who sent their SAT scores to at least four colleges.

Indiana schools include:

Goshen Community Schools
Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township
Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township
Prairie Heights Community School Corporation
School City of Hobart
Tippecanoe Valley School Corp
Whitko Community School Corp
Congratulations to the staff at GHS, and thank you for your continued pursuit of excellence and opportunities for all students!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Last week was the NFL draft.  As always, there were some surprises as to where the college stars landed and which teams would select them.  But regardless, there is always competition.  The draft assures nothing.  New Denver Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez said it best.  “If you are confident in your ability, you have no problem helping a guy.”  If you are an upperclassmen, take this suggestion to heart.  Always be of help to the young players on your team and encourage them constantly.  Your leadership and attitude will truly affect their growth as a player and student-athlete!
