On October 11, 2016 Eastwood High School’s Robotic Team partnered up with Robotics Education Competition (REC) Foundation and VEX Robotics, Inc. to host “Girl Powered”
More than 300 girls from all over El Paso participated in Girl Powered, which fell on the International Day of the Girl Child. The event consisted of engaging activities, speakers and workshops that excited and encouraged girls to participate in competitive robotics, and further encouraged them to take an interest in the STEM field. Throughout their day, the girls had the opportunity to participate in leadership activities, compete, and hear from STEM organizations.
This event was an initiative to engage more young women in science, technology, engineering, and math. Through the REC Foundation, many of these young girls are presented a series of robotics engineering programs that engages them from elementary school through college in the classroom and competitions. “Eastwood Robotics is proud to support this great foundation,” said Raul Torres, Eastwood robotics coach. “Anything we can do to empower, inform, and engage more girls to pursue careers in STEM and robotics is worth doing.”
World Teachers Day was created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1994 to celebrate the educators of the world. The global holiday is held on Oct. 5 each year in recognition of the special intergovernmental conference convened by UNESCO in Paris that adopted the UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers on that date in 1966. The recommendation declared education a fundamental human right, acknowledged the essential role of teachers to society, set international standards and defined teachers' responsibilities.
For most, Oct. 5 is just a day to pay their teachers a little bit of extra gratitude for shaping their lives and minds and those of their children. UNESCO holds an annual conference in Paris where it hands out the Hamdan Prize awards, but the organization recommends those who can not attend the Paris event take the opportunity "to discuss, compare, learn, argue, share and improve" wherever they are in the world.
Friday, September 23, San Elizario High School celebrated its traditional Homecoming Pep Rally and Foot ball game.
What makes this year’s Homecoming Pep Rally special, is that we have two Special Ed students, Silvanna “Cici” Ortiz and Brandy Ornelas, who got nominated by their peers as this year’s San Elizario High School Homecoming King & Queen. This is a “SEHS first” since in the past, we have never had two Special Ed students be chosen as King & Queen. In fact, it’s been 15 years since at least one Special Ed student was nominated!
Both students were ecstatic about wearing their crown’s during Friday’s Pep Rally and were cheered on by the entire school. They were also “re-crowned” during halftime on Friday’s football game against Anthony High School.
Every year, The University of Texas at El Paso and the UTEP Alumni Association honor a group of men and women whose achievements stand out as monuments to dedication, integrity and hard work – they are the UTEP Distinguished Alumni and Gold Nugget Award recipients.
“This year’s Distinguished Alumni have made an impact as a successful entrepreneur, a noted anesthesiologist and an award-winning historian,” said Maribel Villalva, UTEP assistant vice president for alumni relations. “Similarly, our Gold Nuggets range from K-12 and higher education leaders to nationally recognized performers, business leaders and health professionals.
“These former Miners are wonderful examples of the UTEP spirit and the drive to succeed. They were once proud students at UTEP and, upon graduation, went out and made their mark on the world. They continue to make a difference in the lives of others and they remain true Miners every step of the way. We are proud to honor these very deserving and inspiring individuals and look forward to welcoming them back home.”
The 2016 awardees will be officially recognized during UTEP’s 2016 Homecoming Week, Oct. 23-29.
