Two Wendy's Heisman High School Winners at Tanque Verde High School!


Jack Lauteret and Bridget Spooner were recognized as School Winners of the prestigious Wendy's Heisman High School State Competition. There were only 14 students from the Tucson area high schools and Tanque Verde has 2 of those 14 students!!  


The requirements for consideration included maintaining a GPA of 3.0 (B average), be proven leaders and role models within their school and community, and each student must perform in at least one of the 43 school sponsored sports recognized by the International Olympic Committee in the Summer and Winter Olympic Games or the National Federation of State High School Associations.

  Both Jack and Bridget were surprised in class last Thursday with certificates recognizing this accomplishment. Congratulations from the Tanque Verde High School community!

Zink:  The Myth, the Legend, the Zebra by Cherie Bennett

Sat Dec 3rd, 6pm   

$4 adults, $3 students

This allegory features a girl with leukemia and a herd of talking African zebras whom she meets when she is diagnosed. The zebras include street-smart Ice Z, grandmotherly Momma Zeke and pompous Zilch, along with Shlep, a furry green monkey who's certain he's also a zebra. The zebras recount to her their legend of Zink, a mythical polka-dotted zebra once an outcast but later a hero. As Becky's condition worsens, she zaps back and forth between real life and the zebra world, until the shattering but uplifting climax.
