Hearne culinary stars shine in FCCLA Cupcake Wars

Congratulations to Ty Anderson on winning Cupcake Wars with her fabulous cupcakes.


Mrs. Nelson likes to challenge her students in FCCLA every day. She knows that her students are up to big challenges and she likes to make every day of class fun. This year, her culinary arts class, finished off the year with a cupcake battle royale - based on the Food Network’s epic cupcake battle, Cupcake Wars.

Students had some time during the week to prepare their menu, choose recipes and design their cupcakes. On the day of the contest, each contestant was given a specific amount of time to make, bake and decorate three cupcakes each for two judges. The students were then brought before the judges one-by-one to present their cupcake creations.


Zero Tolerance Club at Hearne High kicks butts – cigarette butts

Project Galactimo, Robertson County Community Coalition, Hearne High School’s Zero Tolerance Club and Boys and Girls Club Robertson County worked together to put together a fun way to kick out tobacco use in Robertson County Teens – a students vs. teacher kickball game. Students from the Zero-Tolerance Club and Project Galactimo made up the students team, while the teacher’s team included coaches, counselors and teachers of all kinds of subjects from Hearne High.

The students enjoyed watching the game and also learning from mini-games played throughout the day that highlighted the dangers of smoking. Winning prizes for their participation made the games even more fun and competitive.


Hearne FCCLA shines on the catwalk

Saroya Williams’ smile lights up the entire room as she models this gorgeous golden slip dress.


The annual fashion show put on by the Hearne FCCLA classes was a smorgasbord of fashion, free prizes and fun for all ages. Students are encouraged to dress up in one of several categories and strut their stuff on the catwalk. From casual wear to formal wear, the students and future students of Hearne ISD showed grace, poise and more than a little sassy as they walked the catwalk for family and friends.

This year students also had a chance to show off next year’s uniform dress in several versions. The students showed the variety of options available to students to dress up or down their uniforms next year. The dress code will be more uniform, but the parents, teachers and students who helped form the dress code wanted to give students and parents some variety when choosing clothing options. Shorts, pants or knee-length skirts in either khaki or black can be matched with maroon or white button up shirts. Polo shirts or oxford shirts are acceptable.


Shattered Dreams program teaches valuable lessons

Laura Chesner Staff Writer [email protected] On Monday, April 15, the Bremond High School student body took part in a DWI program on campus. Students, local first responders, faculty and staff volunteered to be an injured person, or a dead body or even the grim reaper in an interactive program meant to drive home the seriousness of drinking and driving. Police, EMS and fire vehicles were on campus to participate in the program and to lend authenticity to the scene that unfolded. The two-day program is designed to educate students, parents, and the community about the serious issue of underage drinking and driving, by providing a realistic experience and encouraging them to make positive choices. The "Shattered Dreams" program involves the dramatization of an alcohol-related crash on or near a high school campus, complete with police and EMS response, emergency room treatment, family notifications, and the arrest and booking of the driver.
