Junior students Emma Wilson and Lauryn Wright represented PCS at the Houston Rotary Club’s Camp Enterprise at Camp Allen in Navasota April 6-8th, 2018.  Camp Enterprise is an extensive three- day camp offering students from throughout the Houston area the opportunity to participate in leadership activities focused on the Free Enterprise System.  Senior Colin Post delivered the opening remarks at the weekend as the Service Above Self Scholarship Recipient from the 2017 Camp Enterprise Weekend.  Emma Wilson’s group won the competitive team award for the weekend resulting in a $500 scholarship for each member.  Lauryn Wright’s team won the talent show for the weekend.  Congratulations to each of these students for their accomplishments.

PCS Juniors Collin Fields, Emory Fields and Emma Wilson participated in the NASA High School Aerospace Scholars Program during the 2017-2018 school year.  This one-of-a-kind experience is designed for Texas high school juniors to explore the possibilities of a STEM related major or career.  This free program begins in the fall of junior year with an on-line course and culminates for the top students with an on-site weeklong learning experience at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.  All students who complete the HAS program receive an extra science elective credit on their official transcript. Congratulations to Emory Fields and Emma Wilson for being selected to attend the summer HAS experience. 

The American Legion Boys and Girls State programs are among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students. These summer programs allow each student to become part of the operation of his or her local, county, and state government. Participants in these summer programs are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties and the responsibilities, of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical, with city, county, and state governments operated by the students elected to the various offices.

Congratulations to Collin Fields, Jacob Hauck, Connor Johnson, Addison Lindsey, Mitch Martina and Drew White who were selected to represent PCS at Texas Boys State in Austin this summer.

Congratulations to Emory Fields, Jessica Garrett, Emma Wilson and Lauryn Wright who were selected to represent PCS at Texas Girls State in Seguin this summer.
