In front of the cafeteria, seniors Sydney Thomas and Grace Hale showcase their booklets. Both earned full ride scholarships to Texas Christian University and plan to be roommates. “I will be studying Strategic Communications with a minor in Political Science,” Hale said. “I want to help out with non-profit organizations and building a bridge between them and the government.”

Sitting at a table in the school district board meeting room, Chief Communications Officer Rachel Trotter and District Attorney Jeff Crownover answer questions from both PHS and RHHS student journalists. The press conference was held after school on March 30, and was invitation only. It was held so that student journalists within the district could ask questions on the topic of concerns over the district’s library collection development process. (Rusty Joe Gonzalez)
