Here's a crazy idea - a high school recognizes their top ten students and gives them media exposure usually reserved for athletes!
Actually I ran into two different schools that are doing this.
While on our way to our winter break on South Padre Island, my wife and I passed a large billboard on Route 77 with the pictures of the top ten students of Lyford High School. A day or so later there was television advertising time bought by Weslaco High School to recognize their top ten students. You can see a video of the Weslaco kids below.
Though I am a former (very long time ago) college football player, it is my firm belief that there is not enough recognition of the academics, the actual real reason we have schools! These two high schools are doing something special that I wish FBISD would do.
