May 2, 2019


DSHS freshman Lizzie Galassini and sophomore Sofia Albini won first place statewide for their grade division in the 2019 Texas Association for Pupil Transportation (TAPT) School Bus Safety Speech Contest held in Waco April 29. In addition, senior Catherine Manning placed second in the state. Students wrote and delivered a four- to six-minute memorized speech on the topic "Red Lights Mean Stop!," referring to the importance of motorists stopping for flashing red lights on school buses. Grade level winners received a $600 scholarship check.

The girls qualified for the state competition after winning their grade level at the Region 13 competition.
