  • E4 Youth Shines at Awards Night

    Posted by Kirk Wrinkle at 5/17/2017 6:00:00 PM

    E4 YOUTH SHINES AT AWARDS NIGHT


    Several current and former PHS students were recognized last Thursday at the annual E4 Youth Awards Night, an event that showcases the Austin-area students and businesses who have participated in various E4 Youth programs this year. The event was held at the Google Fiber Space in downtown Austin. There were more than 100 people in attendance, including representatives from local creative companies such as GSD&M, McGarrah Jessee, Sanders\Wingo, Frog Design, HCB Health and Sherry Matthews Advocacy Marketing. 

     

    Sophomore Santiago Dent was named the PHS Student of the Year, and sophomore Beatriz Zapata was named the overall E4 Youth Student of the Year. PHS graduate Alex Sifuentez was named the overall E4 Youth Creative College Mentor of the Year. PHS graduate Daniel Ebomwonyi was also recognized for serving as a Creative College Mentor with this year’s program. 

    Several PHS students addressed the crowd and spoke about their creative work and how E4 Youth has benefitted them this year. Those students are: Beatriz Zapata, Santiago Dent, Samajae Bonds, Makayla Moore, Khue Tran, Ian Barnhill and Milani Cruz.

    E4 Youth is an Austin-based non-profit that aims to provide enrichment opportunities for students interested in pursuing careers in the creative arts.  We hope to work with E4 Youth again next year, and hopefully even more students will participate.

    Parents and Guardians:

    On Wednesday, May 3rd, a ceremony was held at the Rock Gym to honor six students and six teachers.  Each student was called forth to receive an award and a scholarship as recipients of the Luminary Award.  The Luminary Award is a new award sponsored by the Pflugerville Education Foundation which honors a student and a teacher.  The students spoke about the teacher they believed most impacted their academic career.  Each teacher then spoke about the student being honored.  There were funny stories told as well as heart wrenching ones.  There was laughter.  There were tears.  Twelve people stood before us and reminded us of what it means to live this work.  From Pflugerville High School, the seniors honored were Khala Hanson and Mitchell McDonald.  Khala then honored her coach April Hundl by speaking about the bond they have shared on and off of the court.  April shared how Khala understands how the world is much bigger than herself and explained the impact Khala has had on her peers, her team, her coaches, and her school.  Mitchell chose Mary Pennington and spoke about her passion for students, her laughter, her tears, and how she teaches life lessons.  Mary then in turn talked about Mitchell’s kindness toward fellow students by making them feel welcome and creating a sense of belonging among his peers as well as funny moments they shared.  It was a special night.  A big Panther thank you to April and Mary for the impact you have had on these students.  You both did a wonderful job speaking and are exceptionally special to many.  PHS is proud of you and lucky to have you.  And a big congratulations to Khala and Mitchell who will receive a scholarship check from the PEF and Mr. Gary Patterson, interim superintendent.  Thanks to all who supported this awesome occasion!

    Out of soap. Until next week...
