Five students from Aspermont ISD recently returned from the University of Texas, where they competed in the State UIL Academic meet to bring home medals in individual and team events. Superintendent Zach Morris was pleased with the academic success AISD has achieved over the past several years and the challenges of repeated trips to the state competition. He went on to say how impressed he was with the students, and while he and the staff are continuously challenging students, the students dedicated themselves to rising to meet those challenges. “Anytime kids can see success, especially at the highest level, it is rewarding for all involved,” said Morris. “As educators, we are here to create those opportunities in as many ways as possible every day.” He went on to say how this level of student success isn’t achieved quickly, saying it is something you have to contribute time and effort to on a daily basis. Morris said that while he is delighted with the students’ success, he is equally proud of the teaching staff for buying in and taking this approach. AISD teacher, Allison Martin expressed pride in her Computer Science Team’s accomplishments, as this was the third trip in as many years the team has made to Austin. She talked about the level of dedication the students have put fourth during their high school careers.
