Oct. 17, 2019—United States Rep. Michael McCaul toured Bridgeland High School on Friday, Oct. 11, visiting career and technical education (CTE) classes, a government class and the school’s chorale choir.
Rep. McCaul was first greeted by the school’s drumline and cheerleaders, who lined the school’s walkway to the front doors.
“I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with the reception I’ve received,” Rep. McCaul said. “I had no idea the band and cheerleaders were going to be out there for me. It was a very warm welcome.”
Rep. McCaul was taken on a guided tour by Bridgeland student council president, senior Ariana Moshiri, student council vice president, junior Amelia Davis and student ambassador, senior Josh Fang. Moshiri, Davis and Fang told Rep. McCaul about the different classes, extracurricular activities and CTE classes offered at Bridgeland.
“I was very impressed during my tour of Bridgeland,” Rep. McCaul said. “I’ve heard about Bridgeland being on the cutting edge of academics and I was very interested to see it firsthand. It’s amazing how many disciplines you have here. If you want to go to college, law school, medical school or even a particular trade practice you can learn that here at Bridgeland.”
Rep. McCaul stopped and spoke to Kevin Satterfield’s advanced placement/dual credit government class, where he discussed the issues Congress is working on and answered student questions.
Rep. McCaul then visited Denise Bishop’s pharmacy tech class and the automotive technology program. Moshiri, Davis and Fang then took Rep. McCaul to hear Bridgeland’s chorale choir sing the national anthem and one of their fall concert pieces.
“The pharmacy class was very inspiring and to end with the beautiful national anthem sung by the choir was a phenomenal experience,” Rep. McCaul said. “I want to thank Bridgeland for giving me this great experience.”
“We at Bridgeland are honored that Rep. McCaul took the time to visit and see what amazing things happen here every day,” said Mike Smith, Bridgeland principal. “Our students demonstrated to Rep. McCaul what it means to be Bridgeland Best.”
