Area high school water polo treads new ground https://woonsockethigh.org/area-high-school-water-polo-treads-new-ground/ Sun, 09 Oct 2022 20:39:59 +0000 https://woonsockethigh.org/area-high-school-water-polo-treads-new-ground/ SAN ANTONIO — Alamo Heights water polo is in a familiar place — the playoffs.

However, this year strikes differently in the inaugural year of the sport’s affiliation with UIL.

Last year, the Mules boys and girls were the only area schools to qualify for the Texas Intercollegiate Swimming Coaches Association (TISCA) state tournament.

Both teams brought back a lot of experience from those runs and that’s the main reason each reached records of 10-0 in the 25-6A district and overall records of 19-2.

Top players for the Mules include Meriden Black who has 50+ goals and Avery Kieschnick who has 40+ goals. Goaltender Emma Hetrick averages 8.0 blocks per game. Other top returnees are Liliana Gamiz and Francesca Batiz.

Alamo Heights top boys include EJ Gonzales, Vance Matthews, Derek Montoya, Jude Adan and James Cox.

Both teams hope to build on a legacy established since 1972 when they started playing as a club team at TISCA.

First round

Girls

Brandeis vs. New Braunfels Canyon, 5:15 p.m. Monday Alamo Heights Natatorium

Alamo Heights vs. Boerne Champion, 5:15 p.m. Monday, Northside ISD Swim Center

Davenport vs. Clark, 6:30 p.m. Monday, Alamo Heights Natatorium

Health Careers vs. Smithson Valley, 6:30 p.m. Monday, Northside ISD Swim Center

Taft vs. Highlands, 7:45 p.m. Monday, Northside ISD Swim Center

To note:

Boys

Davenport vs. Brandeis, 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, Alamo Heights Natatorium

Key dates

Monday: Beginning of the playoffs

October 22:
Regional Tournament IV, Southwest ISD Aquatic Center

October 29:
(Provisional) Josh Davis Natatorium, San Antonio


Both won state titles in 1979. The girls were runners-up in 1977, 1978, and 1986. The boys were runners-up in 1978, 1980, 1981, and 1985.

Perfect Brandeis Girls

The Brandeis girls, 26-6A district champions, are 15-0 (8-0 in the league) and were one of two teams to defeat Alamo Heights. The Broncos play in New Braunfels Canyon at 5:15 p.m. Monday at the Alamo Heights Natatorium. They beat Canyon 13-2 earlier this season.

Senior Grace Goldhammer has a team record 45 goals followed by 30 for junior Camila Diarte. Senior Reeve Sanchez has 24 goals and 20 assists. Senior goaltender Ashley Easley made 56 saves.

“I have three or four girls who are really committed to playing at the club all summer, so we had a solid foundation for this season,” said Megan Perez, who coaches the girls’ and boys’ teams at Brandeis.

The Broncos have successfully blended that experience with newcomers to the sport.

“Our girls are really ready to embrace the sport and learn and accept this criticism of everything we work on and race with,” Perez said. “Our senior leadership has a goal that we want to go further in the playoffs and we want to go in the state for the first year.”

The beginnings of the champion

Boerne Champion never had a water polo team – club or otherwise – until this season.

The Chargers boys won the district championship 26-6A going 8-0 in league and 10-0 overall with a mix of experience and newcomers.

“They managed to pick up on some of the more basic parts of the game pretty quickly,” said Alberto Escalante, who coaches the boys’ and girls’ teams. “It was fun getting them technically outfitted and then going through game scenarios.”

Bexon Harrison, Jake Canales, Will Harrison, Emi Martinez-Galaraza, Roberto Perez-Puente and Ian Rutledge have club experience from San Antonio teams.

The Chargers girls made the playoffs despite starting with players with little or no experience. The champ went 2-6 in district and 3-7 overall.

Top female performers include Kate Deykin, Cayden Van Dyne, Victoria Adame, Kenna Chastain, Jacey Wolf, Cora Skoog and Lilly Schiffelbein.

The format under UIL

Until this year, TISCA had held state playoffs every year since 1972. This also included private school participation.

After years of serving as an intramural sport and club in high school, water polo begins its first postseason run at a UIL sport on Monday.

There is only one classification – Class 6A – for schools of all enrollment levels. There are 32 districts, eight of which are divided into four regions.

What credit score do you need to qualify?

The The Capital One Venture Rewards credit card is one of many travel rewards credit cards offered by the issuer. For this particular card, the application page says you’ll need to have an excellent credit rating – according to Capital One, this means applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • You have never declared bankruptcy or defaulted on a loan
  • You haven’t been 60 days late on a credit card, medical bill, or loan in the past year
  • You have maintained a loan or credit card with a credit limit greater than $5,000 for at least three years

If you’re wondering what specific credit score you’ll need to qualify for this card, Capital One won’t officially release that information. Additional reports by personal finance sites such as The dot guy and NerdWallet suggests, however, that applicants can still qualify with good or very good credit. Since FICO counts scores between 670 and 739 as good credit scores, this likely means applicants will need to have a credit score of at least 670 to qualify.

FICO score ranges:

  • Very poor: 300 to 579
  • Fair: 580 to 669
  • Good: 670 to 739
  • Very well: 740 to 799
  • Excellent: 800 to 850

Of course, this doesn’t mean that all applicants with a score above 670 will qualify or those with a lower score will be rejected, but in general, this is the score you’ll want to aim for to be considered eligible. If you are unsure of where you stand, Capital One offers consumers a pre-qualification toolso you can see which Capital One credit cards you may qualify for.

Credit card issuers also consider other factors such as your annual income, the length of your credit history, and the number of credit cards you have applied for recently.

FICO score factors:

  • Payment history (35%) — If you made your previous payments on time
  • Amounts due (30%) — Your credit utilization rate, or the ratio of the amount of credit you are using to the amount that has been extended and due on your accounts
  • Length of credit history (15%) — The time you have had credit
  • New credit (10%) — How often you open new accounts
  • Composition of credit (10%) — Whether you have different types of credit, such as installment loans or revolving lines of credit

To increase your chances, you should also limit the number of credit card applications you submit in recent months. Although there is nothing specific mentioned on Capital One’s website, a number of personal finance sites, including Forbes Advisor reported that applicants will not be approved for more than one Capital credit card every six months.

Additionally, Capital One limits the number of personal credit cards consumers can open to two. In other words, if you already have two Capital One-branded credit cards, you probably won’t be able to qualify for the Venture Rewards credit card, regardless of how good your credit score is.

If denied, cardholders can call Capital One customer service and try to negotiate your case for approval, although you may not be successful. Mentioning important details such as extenuating circumstances that caused you to be behind on your past payments or highlighting your past loyalty to Capital One probably wouldn’t hurt.

SNHU appoints first female board chair https://woonsockethigh.org/snhu-appoints-first-female-board-chair/ Fri, 07 Oct 2022 18:31:04 +0000 https://woonsockethigh.org/snhu-appoints-first-female-board-chair/

In a crowded on-campus auditorium, the inspiring women of the Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) Board of Trustees gathered for a panel discussion in early October. Moderated by the SNHU Chief Experience Officer sue nathanthe roundtable highlighted the voices and experiences of female members of the university’s board of trustees.

Together, each of the directors shared their unique perspectives and discussed the impact that leadership roles can have on the women in them.

SNHU Board Maribel Duran speaking at the Women on Board panel“Women walk around with different identities,” said Maribel Duran ’16. “I am very proud to say that I was a teenage mother, a single mother and a first generation adult learner. It took me almost 17 years to get my bachelor’s degree, and I carry those identities with me in many rooms. Over time, I learned by observation. I learned from the bravest leaders, and I learned from not so great leaders. You take notes, learn, and start creating more tools in your toolbox.

SNHU Board of Directors Janiece Y. Evans-Page listening to other panelists speak at SNHU's Women on Board eventWhen asked if there was a singular moment that Janiece Y. Evans-Page realized she was officially a leader, she said, “I’m the one who believes that leadership can start and happen anywhere. For me, it was really when I knew I had a sense of agency and when I could give direction and inspire others.

Lisa Guertin shared his thoughts on impostor syndrome. “I vividly remember my first job coming out of college and looking at senior executives and fully believing, ‘they’re different, they’re cut from a different cloth,'” she said. “Then you become one by title, but you think ‘I’m still just me.’ As you rise in leadership you realize this and it is liberating.

Reflect on what it means to be a leader, Dr. MaryEllen C. McGuire highlighted the importance of strategic thinking. Earlier in her career, a co-worker told her, “You have to get off the dance floor and onto the balcony. You need to start thinking long term. It’s not just about deliverables. Think beyond that – really live your mission every day. She believes strategic thinking didn’t come naturally, and this advice prompted her to change her mindset.

SNHU's Director of Experience, Sue Nathan, moderates the Women's Panel on the Board of Six SNHU Board MembersDiane Tryneski expressed that often in her career she was the only woman in the room. At first, she didn’t feel comfortable talking, but she found that having confidence in herself made all the difference. She also shared the importance of having diverse voices in the workplace. “In my career, I would hire people who didn’t come to a position traditionally,” she said. “I think it’s a lot about what someone brings to the role and having a look that sees things differently from the band. It’s that magic, like a recipe. You always add to it.

Among the panelists was Winnie Lerner, who recently became the first female board chair in SNHU history. She joined the board in 2015 and is currently co-CEO of FGS Global for North America, a communications consultancy. The board unanimously elected Lerner president.

“It is an honor and a privilege to take on this position, replacing Mark (Ouellette), who has been an incredible Chairman of the Board,” said Lerner. “He truly left an incredible mark on the institution, and it is with great humility that I stand here today and take on this role.”

During the panel, she also emphasized the importance of finding your passions and being part of meaningful work. “For me, what gets me out of bed every day is versatile, flexible, interesting and interconnected work,” she said.

SNHU Board Chair Winnie Lerner listens to panelists speak at SNHU's Women on Board eventPrior to Lerner’s role at FGS, Lerner led corporate communications at Ralph Lauren and served as President of the Abernathy MacGregor Group. She also worked as an energy and commerce legislative aide on Capitol Hill and worked on presidential and congressional campaigns. She has advised senior executives of companies in transition and through mergers and acquisitions, crises and leadership changes for more than two decades. Lerner advises companies through complex moments of change and develops strategies to build their profiles and communicate their mission and business goals to important audiences.

“We are thrilled to welcome Winnie Lerner as the first female chair of the board,” said Paul LeBlanc, president of the SNHU. “Winnie brings to SNHU a wealth of experience, creativity, and a deep commitment to our mission. This is an important day for Southern New Hampshire University, and I look forward to working together to continue transforming lives at scale.” .

From left to right: Outgoing SNHU Board Chair Mark Ouellette, SNHU Board Chair Winnie Lerner and SNHU President Paul LeBlancHis predecessor, Marc Ouellette ’77, served on the SNHU Board of Directors for 26 years, including nine years as Chairman of the Board. This month, he proudly passed the torch to Lerner.

“Working with Winnie over the past seven years has been a wonderful experience,” said Ouellette, outgoing Chair of the SNHU Board of Directors. “I know I’m leaving SNHU in very capable hands, and I’m confident Winnie will thrive in this role.”

Recognized by Forbes as one of the top employers for women in the nation, SNHU understands the importance of a diversity of voices and perspectives. The university currently maintains a 50/50 gender ratio on the board, and the majority of SNHU’s leadership team are women. SNHU is also working toward increased Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) representation, with the goal of achieving 50/50 in terms of white and non-white board members.

As part of these efforts, SNHU hosted Luis Lopez to the board this fall. Having built national, regional and international higher education networks, he has extensive knowledge of post-secondary education and its growing markets. As former CEO of Honoris United Universities, Lopez played a leading role in the launch and development of the pan-African network of private higher education institutions and its unique collaborative approach.

“While American higher education still has a long way to go in terms of gender and diversity in leadership roles, at SNHU we have experienced firsthand the benefits of a diverse board,” LeBlanc said. “Winnie and Luis are welcome additions to the SNHU Board of Directors, and their roles will support our continued growth as an organization.”

Melanie Drolet ’16 is a communications manager at Southern New Hampshire University.

Boston’s new schools superintendent officially begins her new role https://woonsockethigh.org/bostons-new-schools-superintendent-officially-begins-her-new-role/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 10:28:23 +0000 https://woonsockethigh.org/bostons-new-schools-superintendent-officially-begins-her-new-role/

Mary Skipper’s official start date as Boston Schools’ new superintendent is Monday.

As the sixth person to hold the position in just the past decade, all eyes will be on how the Boston native and veteran school administrator will tackle long-standing challenges in Massachusetts’ largest school district – and if it will be able to stay in place.

“I am thrilled that Monday has finally arrived,” said Jeri Robinson, chairman of the Boston school committee. “Mary has been very involved behind the scenes since signing her contract.”

Skipper, most recently the Somerville Public Schools leader who agreed to a four-year contract with an annual starting salary of $300,000 in her new role, was unavailable for an interview for this story. In recent public remarks at the Boston Globe Summit, however, she underscored her intention to continue the work being done under Acting Superintendent Drew Echelson.

“It’s wonderful to be back,” Skipper, a former Boston Public Schools teacher, principal and administrator, told WBUR. RadioBoston in an interview in August.

“It’s wonderful to reconnect with so many colleagues here at BPS who are doing such great work. It’s also wonderful to welcome back those who have left and come back to have fun as we rebuild the BPS,” she added.

The Boston school committee, by a 4-3 vote in June, chose Skipper for the role over BPS Regional Superintendent Tommy Welch. Although the students’ first day back from Boston was on September 8, Skipper’s start date was delayed so she could wind down her role at Somerville.

The start of the new school year for Boston students has been challenged by transportation issues, including a month-long shutdown of the Orange Line that has complicated transportation options for thousands of students and families. of the BPS.

On-time school bus arrivals will be a priority this year, as will significantly improving services for English language learners and students with disabilities, in line with a school improvement plan the district has negotiated with the state Board of Education over the summer to avoid receivership.

Although Skipper is entering the BPS system at a time of intense scrutiny, she has not released detailed plans for how she will lead the district to success.

She said in August that she wanted to develop “healthy, student-centered schools” that include “prioritizing and accelerating academic performance” and “rebuilding and improving access to social learning.” and emotional for our students”.

“I think Mary Skipper comes with incredible experience and talent, so I’m excited to step forward and take this opportunity to support her in this work, but also to continue to ask the hard question for myself. ensure that we do well for our children,” said Boston school board member Brandon Cardet-Hernandez.

Want to “rebuild the BPS”

Skipper arrives in Boston with an academic improvement record in Somerville Public Schools. During his seven-year tenure, Somerville Schools continued a positive trend of improving graduation rates, attendance, and MCAS performance. Dropout rates dropped during his time there, according to data collected by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Skipper recently told WBZ-TV that she is confident in her ability to transition from the Somerville Public Schools, which serve about 4,600 students, to the BPS system, which is about ten times larger.

“I am a practitioner, I am someone who comes from the field, I have been a teacher, a principal, I have managed a network of schools,” she said.

Much of Skipper’s career was spent at BPS. She spent 15 years working in Boston – first as a teacher, then a principal, and finally an administrator at the district’s central office. She also helped launch TechBoston Academy, a technology-focused school, in 2002.

The Dorchester resident and parent of three is the fourth permanent superintendent to run Boston schools in a decade — the sixth if you count interims. His predecessor, Brenda Cassellius, left after three years.

Skipper acknowledges the fleeting nature of the role and said she hopes to bring a sense of stability to the district — her time at BPS spanned a time that she says was more stable than it is now.

She told Radio Boston’s Tiziana Dearing in late August that she viewed the school improvement plan as the basis of the district’s goals and said the school system should aim higher than what has been set.

Filling district vacancies with diverse educators is also a priority.

Skipper told WBZ-TV in early September that she hopes to fill many roles by promoting staff who already work with the district and know the school culture. One example she cited is helping paraprofessionals get their teaching license and encouraging current teachers to become certified in additional skills.

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu says she is confident about the future of BPS under Skipper’s leadership.

“We’re going to get it right,” Wu told WBUR in August. “We are going to hit all of our hurdles and benchmarks as much as possible. Not because we have to be compliant, but because our students deserve every resource and every opportunity. »

Robinson, the school board chairman, said success in Boston’s public schools will take more than the energy and ideas of a new leader. It has to be teamwork.

“It’s not the magic of an individual,” she said.

“My question is, is Boston prepared to support its superintendent?” Robinson added. “We have 10,000 employees, 50,000 families, a city council, more resources than any other part of the country. Do we want Boston’s public schools to succeed as a city? And if so, what [are we] ready to do to make sure that happens? »

]]> Virginia food banks seek help amid high inflation supply chain issues / Public News Service https://woonsockethigh.org/virginia-food-banks-seek-help-amid-high-inflation-supply-chain-issues-public-news-service/ Fri, 20 May 2022 22:02:41 +0000 https://woonsockethigh.org/virginia-food-banks-seek-help-amid-high-inflation-supply-chain-issues-public-news-service/

Virginia food banks are facing a perfect storm of problems. High inflation of daily consumer goods is driving up the cost of food for low-income families, while food banks struggle to overcome supply chain issues to keep their shelves well stocked.

Eddie Oliver, executive director of the Virginia Federation of Food Banks, which oversees seven regional food banks across the state, said that since many pandemic stimulus benefits have expired, the financial reserves built up by low-income families income began to decline.

“As families are squeezed, they are increasingly turning to food banks for help,” Oliver said. “Meanwhile, our operational expenses are increasing. So it’s difficult on many fronts.”

Oliver noted that the best way to support a local food bank is through financial support, which will help them cope with soaring grocery prices. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), food prices are expected to increase between 5% and 6% in 2022.

According to Feeding America, nearly a quarter of a million children in Virginia are food insecure, and nearly half of households receiving SNAP benefits have children.

In addition to supply chain issues and inflation, Oliver pointed out that the end of the school semester will also be an aggravating factor in the coming weeks.

“Access to school meals is coming to an end here as schools are about to close for the summer,” observed Oliver. “Meanwhile, we are seeing the highest inflation we have seen in decades, which of course disproportionately impacts low-income families.”

The USDA has extended free school meals to children throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, but the program will end at the end of this school year. The Virginia Poverty Law Center reported that before COVID, more than 460,000 Virginia students received free and discounted school meals daily.
