    After the students competed, the students took a brief tour of Baylor University and had a wonderful time. Students were mesmerized by the Baylor Science Building, the Student life Center (where the tallest free-standing rock climbing wall in Texas is located), the McCrary Music Building (where they tested the acoustics of Jones Hall), and ‘met’ the always sleepy Lady and Joy - Baylor’s mascots. 

    These students continue to amaze me with their perseverance and hard work! Congratulations, again!

  • February 11, 2018. Results from the VASE-Visual Arts Scholastic Event competition this past Saturday.

    Congratulations to Aniaya Hart and Yeferson Gomez. Both students received 3's on art submitted to competition.  Rating scale is 1 is the lowest and 4 the highest.

    I am very proud of the work they put into the artwork they entered and the time they spent preparing to be interviewed by the judge.

    Yeferson is a senior so he can use this experience for college interviews and add it to his resume.  Aniaya is interested in entering again next year, I am sure she will receive a 4.

    Also, we quickly ran through some of the art museum (Yeferson had to get back to Pt Arthur), but they were impressed by the art they did get to see.  Yeferson had never been to an art museum before and Aniaya barely remembered going to the Museum of SETX in Beaumont.  I would love to take some students to the Stark this spring for a tour and workshop.

    Thank you all for supporting these students, it was a great experience for them.

    ~Jacqui Hamel, Art Teacher, Memorial High School

  • February 8, 2018.  MHS RYLA students attend Rotary Luncheon
    RYLA Juniors who were selected by the Port Arthur Rotary Club to attend the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) Conference in January were invited to the February 8th Rotary Luncheon at Southeast Texas Medical Center, along with Mrs. Duncan, one of the Junior Counselors.  They were able to reconnect with other participants and friends as they shared a meal with students from Bob Hope Charter School who also attended the leadership conference. 
    Students were able to experience a Rotary meeting, as well as have an opportunity to personally thank the members of the Port Arthur Rotary Club, who sponsored such a great event in January to build on their leadership skills.  Students were also treated to a Chemistry lesson, as the Museum of the Gulf Coast Curator was the guest speaker.  She explained some of the ways that artifacts and documents were restored after the extensive flooding, which has hit our communities hard the past several years, as well as preventative methods for preserving delicate pictures, old documents, and precious artifacts.  It was amazing how most of the methods were easy to do with simple cleaning supplies and transformed storage containers.  She also debunked some of the myths about handling artifacts and older documents.
    Students attending from Memorial High School were (from left):  Emily McElroy, Juan Funez-Mendoza, and Tiffany Tran.  The second picture was taken with the 11th-grade students from Bob Hope, who also represented the Port Arthur area at RYLA this year.RYLA2
