Holliday High School celebrates win as 2019 State 3A UILAcademic  Champions

Holliday High School held a special assembly Friday afternoon for the unveiling of the new monument in honor of their 2019 3A UIL State Academic Championship. Shaun Duthie, Holliday UIL Coordinator, said “For the kids to be to able to have opportunity to go and be rewarded at the State meet, much less as State Champions, is a tremendous honor.”

Duthie stated that approximately 130 students participated in UIL academic activities. They begin working on their events at the beginning of the year during zero hour at 7:15 am. Those who can’t make the morning practices will find time during lunch, after school or weekends. He stated that UIL events have exploded offering competition in so many events in which students can be successful.

Duthie was quick to praise the work of Mrs. Peggy Wallace in establishing this program. He stated, “The program was initiated by Mrs. Peggy Wallace in the 1980’s. All the success this program has achieved is because of the work she put in on the program she established.” (Mrs. Wallace was a former teacher for many years at Holliday High School.)
