Fifty Tigers qualified for state competition at the District 3 competition, which was hosted by South Plains College on Feb. 17-18.
“It really feels great. As far as the program, we have grown over the years and are getting more students to advance to the state level.And this year, we just did a phenomenal job,” said Law Enforcement teacher Javad Deshone, who has two students who receive $500scholarships from the college. “We all did a really great job in the district competition this year.”
Law Enforcement, Media, Construction Technology and Automotive Technology students put their knowledge to the test at thecompetition.

“They’re real excited. As a matter of fact, they’re already preparing for state,” said John Hoyle, the Construction Technology teacher.“Once we get back from spring break, we are going to get ready.”
Hoyle noted that the organizations do more than compete. For example, his group of kids helps raise funds throughout the schooldistrict.
The Construction Technology group created Texas Tech, Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos signage to be raffled off earlier this year,while also helping raise funds during the Frenship Foundation for Leadership’s (FFOL) Denim and Diamonds event in early February.
