Jacob Lambie, sophomore Presidential Scholar at Northeast Texas Community College, has recently been named 2020 Coca-Cola Academic Gold Scholar and Guistwhite Scholar.
The University Scholastic League has announced that all events, athletic, academic, and musical will be postponed until further notice. Practices, rehearsals, and workouts have also been suspended. UIL said of the decision:
Pittsburg High School DECA competed last week at the Texas DECA state conference in Fort Worth. The students did a great job representing Pittsburg, competing at the largest ever DECA state conference. These members have put in countless hours of studying and preparation over the last several months and the competition continues to get bigger and tougher each year.
Primary Principal Jyl Wood commended each of these ladies in turn, the Primary Pirate Gold Awardees as an essential employee in the success of the Primary School objectives every day.
