High schools students had the great pleasure of learning about thirty-seven top colleges from around the country at the fourth annual Canterbury Episcopal School’s College Fair.  Students from Canterbury and Ovilla Christian School allowed students time to visit with college representatives and learn about many universities, both near and far, firsthand.  Canterbury junior, Kaelyn Armstrong stated that, “it was nice to meet real people who could answer questions instead of reading reviews on a website.  Also, I got to look at schools I might not have thought to look at before.”  The event, taking place in the Canterbury Episcopal School’s spacious gymnasium, in an annual affair sponsored by the school’s athletic booster club.  Dee Lemmons, Booster Club President, coordinated this stellar event with the help of numerous volunteers and students.  If you are interested in participating in this event or bringing your students next year, feel free to contact the school at www.thecanterburyschool.org .

Klayton Williams - Distinguished Delegate

The Canterbury Episcopal School’s Youth and Government team recently traveled to our state’s capital in Austin to attend the YMCA’s annual Junior Youth and Government State Conference.  Over 500 students from around the state gathered at the capital to participate.  The two day conference was comprised of both committee and joint session opportunities for delegates to present and defend their bills in hopes of someday turning them into law.

 Students had the honor of actually presenting their bills on the floor of both the capital’s house and senate headquarters.  While using parliamentary procedure, pro/con persuasive writing and speaking techniques, and debating skills, students were able to experience first-hand how our government and legal system actually work.  With topics ranging from education reform to creating more eco-friendly building incentives, students demonstrated a vast understanding and passion for changing and improving the future of our state and nation.

Canterbury 7th grader, Jonathan Jamison was elected Lieutenant Governor for next year’s conference, and 7th Grader, Klayton Williams was named Distinguished Delegate for his performance in the Duran House of Representatives.  Canterbury’s team was also given the honor of being named Premier Delegation for the fourth year in a row. 

Canterbury Episcopal is proud to join with the YMCA to offer this worthwhile and life-changing program to their students.  Former students who have participated in the Youth and Government program went on to become CEOs, senators, mayors, governors and other elected officials who are passionate about servant leadership and civic involvement.

CanterburyVarsityBasketballWinsInPlainviewFebruary

by Jerrod Lemmons, Canterbury Cougars Athletic Director

The fighting Canterbury Episcopal School Cougars traveled to Plainview, Texas, near Lubbock, on Tuesday in order to face their playoff competition, the Plainview Christian Academy Eagles. The Cougars won 54-43.

The game was well played and very well matched. Although the Cougars were behind going into the 4th period, the team played hard to pull off a great win. It was a very close game until the last 4 minutes of play. Canterbury's high school boys are a well disciplined and well conditioned young team.

It is not unusual for the Cougars to show their tenacity in the late fourth period. That is why it is exciting to watch the Canterbury Episcopal School's basketball team play.

Canterbury has now advanced to the Elite 8. The next game will be played on Saturday (February 27) at 5:30pm. Lakehill Preparatory School will host. We would love to have our community come show support to our basketball team! Way to go, Cougars!
