Posted in Uncategorized by houstonmustangs on January 8, 2014

To: Students and Parents of Houston High School
From: Leisa Justus
Re: Departure
Date: January 6, 2014

I was offered and accepted an offer from Wilson County Schools to be the Deputy Director of Academics. As of January 6, I will be working there, and I am excited about this new opportunity.

However, I want you to know that I have loved my time at Houston High School, and it is with great sadness that I leave. I admire the administration, faculty, staff, students, and community of Houston. I will follow your successes with great interest and know those successes will be many and great.

I am happy to announce that Evelyn Harris will be the principal at Houston. She knows Houston and knows our vision of excellence (and beyond!). I know you will give her your full support.

Have a great 2nd semester!

on Monday, October 28. The conference, focused on professional
development for music educators, featured inspiring performances from
groups all over the state of Tennessee. Each group was selected through
an intensive application process, which involved the submission of
resumes and performance files to be considered by the Tennessee Music
Educators Association. TMEA chose the top groups from a variety of
genres and styles to perform for NAfME’s conference, aiming to
demonstrate the level and diversity of music education in the state of
Tennessee. The Show Choir was proud to represent Houston High School at
this prestigious event!

NAfME All-National Honor Choir sponsored by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). Representing Houston High School, Hayden and Rachel joined more than 670 of the most musically talented and skilled high school students in the United States to perform at a gala concert on October 30, 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The NAfME All-National Honors Ensembles, consisted of a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus, and jazz ensemble, were organized bymembers of the National Association for Music Education. The mixed
chorus was comprised of approximately 350 vocalists. Hayden and Rachel
successfully passed five auditions to participate in this honor choir
beginning with the All-Southwest Honor Choir and culminating in the
National Honor Choir. Houston High School was one of only two high
schools in the state of Tennessee that had more than one choral
participant.
