Congratulations to Brazoswood High School senior Eric Hembling for being selected by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals (TASSP) as a member of the TASSP All-State Academic Excellence Team. Only 20 students are selected from the approximate 3,200 high schools in the state of Texas.
This prestigious award was designed to recognize Texas high school seniors for their outstanding academic achievements and the rewards of superior scholarship.
Many outstanding senior students were nominated by their high school principals from the approximate 3,200 high schools in the state based on their SAT or ACT scores, academic grade point average, pursuit of advanced diploma, and other evidence of exceptional academic ability. Each student nominated was asked to write a 300-500 word essay to submit with the application. From this group of outstanding young scholars, twenty were chosen for the TASSP All State Academic Excellence Team.
“This is great evidence of the quality education and outstanding learning experiences provided in Brazosport ISD. Eric is an extremely dedicated student taught by committed staff. We are very proud of this accomplishment," said Superintendent Danny Massey.
As a member of the TASSP All-State Academic Excellence Team, Eric will be awarded scholarship funds and formally recognized at the TASSP Summer Workshop in Austin, Texas on June 16, 2016.
