Students Compete at Regional Meet
UIL Academics competed at the regional level at Tarleton State University in Stephenville on Saturday, April 20th. Hunter Anthony placed fifth in Computer Applications, coached by Rhea Mitschke, and was only two points out of placing third, which would have advanced to state.
In all, we had 29 Paradise High School students advance to the regional level of competition in either one-act play, academics, or both. Eight students competed in both one-act play and in one or more academic events.

BROCK-Last week, on Monday, March 25th (writing events) and Thursday, March 28th (all other academic events), approximately 50 students represented Paradise High School in 21 different academic events.

As an academic team, we came in 3rd against some stiff competition from Brock and Ponder.
