Congratulations to Brooke Connelly for breaking the Hinkley High School Diving Record! She broke the record on January 22, 2015 against Brighton HS! The record Ms. Connelly broke was the 6-dive record and it was previously set in 1991 by Laura Wallace.  Wallace’s record was 200.60.  Brooke’s 6-dive score is 215.10.

Way to go Brooke!   



A World Class Athlete in our T-Bird Family!

IntahnteaOur very own Intahntea Hopson has been named a High School All-American for her performance in the Paralympic 200m this past year.  She is a truly amazing young woman who deserves this recognition for all of her hard work on the track and in the weight room these past 3 years.  In addition to this honor, she was also the State Champion in both the 100m & 200m, while running the 6th fastest time in the WORLD for her classification.  This coming year we expect even faster times as she sets her sights on the National Championships in July.  If you see her, please take a moment to congratulate her! 


This year, we have two students who have been nationally recognized for their outstanding Academic Achievement.   


SalinaFirst, Salina Tesfay has been selected as a Semifinalist in the 2015 National Achievement Scholarship Program.  She is one of only 1,600 Black American high school students in the nation who have been selected to compete for this, one of the most prestigious scholarships available in the country.

MorganSecond, Morgan Zugelder has been awarded the honor of being chosen as a scholar for the National Hispanic Recognition Program.  If you know or see either of these amazing students, please congratulate them!
