Forty-six of the region’s top high school students visited Texas A&M University-Commerce October 9th to participate in “Top 10% Day,” a special tour and luncheon for students ranked in the top ten percent of their classes.
After checking in and being welcomed, students attended Dr. Eric Gruver’s honors college history class, went on a tour of the campus and got the opportunity to ask questions before a panel of current students. Afterward the students were treated to lunch with presentations on admissions, financial aid, scholarships, university college, honors college and Hispanic outreach.
“We want to recognize and honor those students in our neighboring districts who, by achieving the top ten percent rank in their high schools, have demonstrated they are dedicated to success,” Mary Hendrix, vice president for student access and success, said. “We want to make them aware of the honors college and the regents scholars program early in the decision-making process so that A&M-Commerce will be their first choice.”

The Chisum Pride Band drum line works hard to keep the beat going so the band can perform their best. Between the ratta-tat-tats and the rumma-tum-tums, everyone feels the beat. It’s hard to sit up in the stands and not tap a toe or drum fingers to the beat of the band.
Chisum Pride Band drum majors Cody Hammer and Seth Spangler (right) stand at attention with the band as they wait to perform during the half-time show at Chisum Stadium. The band recently attended band competition, where they earned a 1st division for their performance. Congratulations, Band!!
The Chisum Mustang JV Football team outgunned the Rebels of Rivercrest by a score of 26-14 last night. The Mustangs were able to score on the second play from scrimmage when QB Jared Mathews (soph) connected with James Black (soph) on a 47 yard TD pass. The Mustang defense forced several 3-&-out series allowing for the offense to get on track. Cody Vorwerk, Garrett McClesky and Eddie Rojas were strong contributors on defense. Mathews also played linebacker and made several tackles behind the line of scrimmage.
Mathews also connected with Tyler Hicks (fr) on two more TD passes from 22 and 15 yards respectively. Mathews also accounted for the Mustangs final score on a 56 yard rush around the end.
