“Students who compete in UIL events devote countless hours preparing for UIL academic competition”, said Dr. David Stevens, UIL director of academics.  “Like their athletic counterparts, they practice before, during and after school and attend invitational meets and competitions.  For virtually every school in Texas, it serves as an extension to the regular classroom for highly motivated, intelligent young men and women.”
 
“In its own way, each contest is intended to teach the thinking skills students will need in college and in their careers,” Stevens said.  “We have tremendous anecdotal evidence from students who testify to the importance UIL academic contests played in their high school careers.  We also know that employers want workers who can solve problems, speak effectively and write clearly.  Each contest is designed to help students reach those goals.”

There’s an Epidemic at Tenaha ISD… Khan Academy is CONTAGIOUS!!!


 

 
What started as an 8th Grade monthly contest has spread faster than the FLU! Thank goodness… it’s much more fun and rewarding, also! Contests were held for the February to March time period for 6th, 7th and 8th graders in Coach Ball’s, Mrs. Farmer’s and Mrs. Wiist’s classes as well as Tiger Tutorial groups and Math Enrichment sections. We are SO proud of our student progress and enthusiasm! Points only count for grade level material and are date ranged for each contest period, so each student has the same chance each month to earn new points for that contest period.
 
Here are our WINNERS:
Coach Ball’s 6th grade winner is Emily Richardson with 22,282 points.
Mrs. Farmer’s 6th Grade winner is Kassidy Walters with an IMPRESSIVE 87,625 points! The 7th Grade winner for Mrs. Farmer’s classes is Sarahi Flores with another outstanding point total of 76,684 points.
 
Mrs. Wiist’s 7th Grade Tiger Tutorial winner is Alexis Plata with 25,482 points. The 8th grade winner this month was Kali Randal with 8,782 points.
Please keep encouraging these kids to continue with their progress on Khan Academy. Remember that Khan Academy is an adaptive online program that is completely self-paced. It adapts to each student’s aptitude as they advance through each grade level concept. Students can even move ahead to their next grade level when their current goal is reached. Khan Academy is available as an app on most smartphones and tablets, as well as online availability through any computer or laptop connected to the internet. Students can work on it at home or at school. Stay tuned… for next month’s WINNERS!
 
Sarahi Flores, 7th Grade
 
Alexis Plata, 7th Grade
 
Kali Randall, 8th Grade

Tenaha Junior and Seniors Participate in Watch UR BAC Program


 

 
 
 
 
Janet Stewart and Ben Smith with the Texas A & M AgriLife Extension Services presented the Watch UR BAC Program Wednesday, March 22 at the Tenaha High School campus.   This program promotes alcohol awareness, the dangers of impaired driving, and friends watching out for friends.  
Tenaha Juniors and Seniors were educated on the laws regarding possession of alcohol and drinking and driving.  The students were able to participate in an interactive driving simulator and peddle car.  
Students learned that the legal limit for intoxication is .08 BAC (blood or breath alcohol concentration), but impaired drivers can be stopped and arrested regardless of BAC.  Also, it is illegal for anyone to have an open container of alcohol inside a vehicle.   Tenaha ISD would like to thank the Texas A & M AgriLife Extension Services for making this program available to Shelby County schools.

John E. and Reba C. Pace Scholarship Established at Panola College


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Panola College is proud to announce the establishment of the John E. and 
Reba C. Pace Scholarship. The scholarship was formed by their daughters
Virginia Pace Lyle and Rebecca Pace Parce in memory of John E. and Reba C. 
Pace.
 
 
The son of James Oliver Pace of Logansport, Louisiana, Mr. John E. Pace
grew up learning the hardware and lumber business from his father. After
his marriage to Reba Childress of Joaquin, Texas, the couple moved to
Carthage in 1937 where he owned and operated Pace Hardware until 1974.
 
Mr. Pace was a member of the Board of Directors of First State Bank & Trust
from 1951 to 1993.  He was then elected to the position of Director
Emeritus in January 1994.  He was a partner along with John Neal and Ernest
Powers in Carthage Milling Company and PNP Cattle Company.  He loved his
land, timber, and cattle on his farms and found his solace there.
 
Mr. and Mrs. Pace were both very involved in the Carthage community.  They
were especially active members of Central Baptist Church, and Mrs. Pace was
a longtime member of the Carthage Book Club.
 
 
The *John E. and Reba C. Pace Scholarship* will be awarded annually to a
Panola College student pursuing a degree in business, forestry, or land
management. The scholarship will be awarded based on academic merit. The
selection of the recipient will be made in the spring each year.

Tiger Baseball Battles Tough 
 
 
 
A late start is tough in baseball when pitching depth matters.  As the Tiger
pitching staff works itself into good throwing shape on the fly, the Tigers
have to battle a tough district schedule.  Last night was no different.  In
Gary, the Tigers went toe-to-toe with a perennial baseball proud program.
After four innings and into the fifth frame, the Tigers were only down 3-1
against the home standing Bobcats.  However, as the innings mounted, the
burden did as well as Tiger pitchers struggled in the late innings.  At the
end of the game, Gary sprinted to an 11-1 win.  
 
 
 
The Tigers return home this Friday for a 4:30 tilt against Shelbyville.
Give them a little time.  The Tigers have already shown that Tiger
competitive spirit.

HLSR Chicken Show: CHS students place in the top 100


 

 

Out of over 600 participants, two CHS students placed 69th (Lance Holloway, Left) and 80th (Kaden LaRock, right) at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Chicken Show.
 
They raised chickens for 6-weeks and spent countless hours making sure they were ready for the show - feeding, watering, walking, etc.
 
They normally see them at least every two hours during the 6-week time frame. Only 100 of each set makes the sale, and these two students did just that!

Panola men fall to #2 seed South Plains in the NJCAA national tournament round of 16, 88-84


 

 
 
 
Hutchinson, Kansas – The Panola College men’s basketball team fell to South
Plains at the NJCAA national tournament, 88-84. With the loss, Panola
finishes with their season 26-9 and winners of 13 of their last 15 games.
“Our guys played so hard all night long. We battled and battled and that’s
all that I could ask for.” Head Coach Grant McMillan stated. “We just ran
out of time on our special season.” He added.
 
 
South Plains had control of the ball game and took their biggest lead of
the ball game 27-16 with just under 11:00 minutes to go in the first half.
Steady defense saw the momentum shift to Panola the rest of the half.
Despite shooting 1-10 from the three point line, the Ponies were only down
41-36 at halftime. The second half Panola chipped away and took a 65-65
with 8:49 remaining in the second half. Multiple South Plains offensive
rebounds help the Texans stretch their lead back to six before Panola came

Tiger Baseball Rolls into Gary off a District Win
 
No rest for the weary.  After a long playoff run in basketball, many of the
Tiger Baseball players had to quickly search out "mid-season" baseball form
as District play had already begun.  After two tough outings to begin the
district slate, the Tigers enjoyed a great Spring Break Friday on their way
to a 23-3 win over district foe Martinsville.  The win moved the late
starting Tigers to 1-2.  
 
 
 
Tonight, the Tigers travel to Gary to take on the Gary Bobcats.  Game time
is 6:30.  Tenaha returns home on Friday to take on Shelbyville at Cole
Depriest Field in a 4:30 PM start.

Hutchinson, Kansas – The Panola College men’s basketball team defeated
Shelton State here Monday afternoon in the first round of the NJCAA D1
national tournament, 77-65. With the victory, Panola advances to the second
round of the Tournament. The Ponies improves their record to 26-8. “Our
guys did a tremendous job playing in the moment. We made plays and executed
all game long.” Head Coach Grant McMillan stated.
 
 
Shelton State led the first six minutes of the ball game before Panola took
control. Eric McGill scored 13 first half points and took the biggest lead
of their game, 17 points, with 37 seconds remaining in the 1st half. Panola
took a 42-27 halftime lead. Panola maintained a double-digit lead most of
the second half until back-to-back Shelton State three pointers cut the
Panola lead to six with just under 5:00 minutes remaining. An Eric McGill
three pointer and a KJ Byers lay-up extended their lead back to
double-digits and the 12 point victory.
 
 
McGill led the Ponies in scoring with 20 points for the game. Tope Arikawe
had 15 points and chased down seven rebounds. Devyn Wilson scored in double
figures with 10. Byers recorded three blocks in the victory. Panola shot 42
percent from the field and 76 percent from the free throw line. They forced

Panola College Rodeo Team has a 1st place winner


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Panola College Rodeo Team was back in action this last weekend in College Station for the 8th of 10 regular season rodeos. It was a great weekend for rodeo action and Panola athletes took full advantage of the indoor arena to display some spectacular abilities.
 
Abby Phillips, a sophomore from Marshall, had a great weekend in the barrel racing. Abby and her horse Fame won 1st in the long go with a time of 16.01 seconds. The pair came back in the short go, to run a 16.04 for another 1st place finish. Abby dominated her event this weekend wining both goes and the average. Abby moved to second place in the Southern Region standings and improved her chances of qualifying for the CNFR in June. Jeffrey Collins, rodeo coach at Panola College, said a horse that can run with these horses in this region like that can run with any of the top horses in the world. Abby not only has a great shot at a national title for us here but has a great shot of making the NFR. Abby is a dedicated athlete who works very hard we will hear more about her in the near future.
 
Logan Cook, freshman in the ranch and land management program, had something to say in the Saddle Bronc riding. Logan scored a 79 point ride on his first horse to win 1st place in the long go. The horse he rode was #12Golden Ticket, the horse has won many titles in the pro rodeo world and was very rank and hard to ride. Cook came back in the short round with another 1st place win with a 76 point ride. Logan moved to second place in the Southern Region standings as did Abby and has almost secured himself a trip to CNFR. Logan is another young man we will hear a lot about in the near future. Petroleum Technologies. Caleb plans to continue to rodeo while he also pursues a career in his field of studies.
 
The Team roping duo of Laramie and Colton Johnson, twins from Shreveport, where in fine form this weekend. The pair posted a first round time of 7.6 seconds. The time was fast enough for a 4th place finish in the long go. They came back to the short go and won another 4th place spot. The pair held on to 4th in the average as well. The season will come down to the last two rodeos, Laramie and Colton are in the 9th place spot, but have enough room to still qualify for the CNFR.
 
Steer Wrestler, Caleb Cogbill , had a great run in the long go posting a 5.4 second run good enough to place 6th in the long go. Caleb is a sophomore that will be graduating this year with a degree in. The combined efforts of each team for the weekend found the women’s team in 2nd place and the men’s team in 4th place. Both teams held their spot at 4th place overall in the region.  The rodeo team will participate again this weekend on March 23-25 at Hillsboro, TX.

Fillies Lose


 

 
The Fillies traveled to Jacksonville, Texas and faced region foe Kilgore
College, Wednesday night.
 
After being voted 10th out of 11 teams in the preseason, the Fillies
finished at the 3rd spot for the regular season, placing them against the 6
th seed. Their incredible journey came to an end last night as they fell
74-77 to the Rangers of Kilgore College in the first round of the region
tournament. "The numbers don't show how hard we worked tonight" stated Head
Coach Eddie Kite. He added "we fought back and played our hearts out, and I
couldn't be more proud of this team".
 
Panola fought in the first quarter to take a lead of 13-11. But a big
second quarter by Kilgore's athletes would put them up 5 heading into half
time. In a grueling match up, the Fillies still had some fight left and
were able to leave it all on the floor.
 
In the second half, The Fillies proved why they were a force to be reckoned
with. With only 1 minute ticking off the clock, the Fillies would take the
lead up 40-39. The game would flow back and forth until Kilgore was able to
pull away at the end of the third up 49-56.
 
In the final stanza of the night, the battle continued and Panola would
find themselves down by as much as 11. But with heart and grit, they still
found a way to get within 1 at 1:07 left in the game. Then a quick drive by
Freshman Patience Okpe would tie the game up at 74 apiece. A few foul calls
later, the Rangers went to the line and were able to pull off the win.
 
Sophomore Charlynn Perry came off the bench and led the Fillies with 18
points. Patience Okpe added 15 points and Sophomore Genesis Rivera put up
11 points and 7 rebounds. Freshman Daria Eremeeva pulled a new career high
with 12 rebounds on the night.
 
The Fillies represented six different countries this season: Belarus,
Brazil, Nigeria, Russia, The United States and Venezuela. But in the end of
their amazing 23-8 run, they were all #1PCFamily.
