Memorial seems to have no shortage of hardworking young men. At second Baptist School, 13 impressive Eagle Scouts were honored from Troop No. 13 in The Sanctuary of Second Baptist Church. Pictured front row, left to right: Christopher Seewald, Michael Price, Cameron Cuming, Robert Elliott, Dalton Dominy. Middle row: Harrison Coleman, Samuel Owens, Jesse Worsham, Ryan Sitton, Robert Clay. Back row: Carter Deutsch, Aaron Burkin, Hunter Coleman.
Meanwhile, four Troop No. 642 members from Memorial High School received the top honor of becoming Eagle Scouts at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. All four started in Cub Scouts as first-graders. Pictured left to right: Miles Brock Tade, Tyler Logan Mays, Tyler Lane Clayton, James Frank Snelling III.
The Rockport Yacht Club may never be the same. Ten beautiful girls from Memorial High School rocked their fishing world in cute, colorful frocks while taking a break from senior activities. They rode the ferry over to Port Aransas to shop, eat, and relax. Blondes Christine Laas, Shelley Keller, Brynne Walker, Amy Carrigan, Nikki Roy, Mindy Stockdale, and Morgan Relyea outnumbered brunettes Brooke Bender, Kaitlyn Johnson and Chelsi Davis. But who had the most fun?
Style and grace
Spring Forest Middle School history teacher Jo Ann Arlitt modeled in grand style at the Jones New York fashion show. Jo Ann received a prestigious grant in 2006 to travel to Greece with a group of her fellow teachers. As a 2006 recipient of the prestigious Fund for Teachers grant, she was selected as a model teacher to represent Houston during Jones New York’s Shop for Education Week. FFT, a Houston-based nonprofit that enriches the lives of school teachers and students, is a beneficiary of the funds donated through the JNY in the Classroom initiative. Jo Ann is one of nine Houston-area teachers who took to the catwalk in support of education . . . and fashion!
It must be her genes
