HISD Takedown

Our top pitching prospect Forrest Whitley was on the mound last night at The Yard. He was out first round pick in the 2016 MLB Draft. He is also from San Antonio. What high school did he attend?

They are here. TEA says HISD can’t hire or search for a superintendent. TEA shut down HISD’s search and that’s the end of that. My goodness. A Trustee is fighting back sort of. Check this from the Chron:

“It just undermines everything we’ve been working so hard to accomplish for the sake of our students and our district,” HISD Trustee Sergio Lira said. “I think that it’s getting to the point of ‘let’s not play games.’ (If you are going to) take us over, take us over now.

State Senator Carol Alvarado did a great job of honoring and recognizing the Astros yesterday on their 2017 World Series Championship. She gave personal props to Jeff Luhnow, Reid Ryan, Will Harris, Tony Kemp and Jake Marisnick. (She posted a cool picture of her speaking with the five looking on.) She quoted Skipper A. J.
