STEM Early College HS celebrates Decision Day
Posted on 05/17/2019

The STEM Early College High School hosted its second annual College Decision Day on May 17.

Administrators, teachers, families and friends gathered at the school’s cafeteria to cheer on the 75 seniors for making a commitment to further their education.

STEM ECHS Principal Michael Littlefield congratulated the students for their dedication and numerous accomplishments.

“They’ve been a very dedicated group of kids, who have been focusing on their studies and hard work,” Littlefield said. “Many of them are going to be entering into their colleges as juniors because they already finished their associate’s degree. Their hope is that they are able to finish their bachelor’s degree within two years, and then use the remaining time to work on their master’s degrees.”

College representatives from various institutions, including Palo Alto College, Our Lady of the Lake University and UT Austin, attended the event to congratulate and welcome their future students. The ceremony also recognized the graduates who enlisted in the military.

STEM Early College HS Class of 2019 Valedictorian Madison Alvarado is ready to begin her new chapter at Texas A&M University this fall. She plans to major in biology.

“After I took a biology class my junior year, I thought it was really fun and interesting to see other forms of life exist and learning every detail about them,” she said. “I’m excited to go somewhere new and continue my education!”

STEM Early College HS Counselor Priscilla Chavez helped organize the event to celebrate the students’ academic success.

“I hope students realize that they have worked extremely hard to get to this point, and that the staff at STEM ECHS are very proud of each and every one of them,” Chavez said.

During the event, several lucky seniors won college-bound baskets filled with dorm essentials.

Way to go, Rattlers!
