    The 2014 WHHS alum graduated from the U.S. Air Force Pilot Training at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma on Friday, July 16, fulfilling a childhood dream. 1st Lt. Hinojosa started Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training (SUPT) at Vance Air Force Base in late 2020. On July 16, 2021, his mother pinned his wings on him in front of the T-6 Texan II, an aircraft in which he logged more than 115 hours of flight instruction. 

    In attendance for the ceremony was retired U.S. Air Force Col. Russell Malesky, WHHS senior aerospace science instructor.

    “[1st Lt. Hinojosa] goes on now as a fully rated USAF pilot to advanced flight training and assignment to the operational aircraft he will fly in our defense as the greatest nation in the world,” Col. Malesky said. pic2

    Upon graduating from Western Hills, 1st Lt. Hinojosa spent one year at the New Mexico Military Institute. He was appointed to the U.S. Air Force Academy and graduated in 2019. As a WHHS student, 1st Lt. Hinojosa served as Group Commander in the campus Air Force JROTC and participated in Aviation Honors Ground School.

  • Fort Worth ISD Partners with The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (HSC) as New Secondary Science Teaching Chair Sponsor

    Posted by Fort Worth ISD on 7/15/2021

    The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (HSC) is the newest sponsor in the 2021-2022 Fort Worth ISD Academic Chairs for Teaching Excellence award program. UNTHSC is the title sponsor of the Chair for Teaching Excellence in Secondary Science.  logo 

    The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth representatives will sit on the selection committee to review and score teacher applications and teacher video demonstrations, and they will participate in the finalists’ panel interview to name the 2021-2022 winner. The winning teacher in this category will receive a $5,000 cash award and the title of Chair of Teaching Excellence for one year. 

     “The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth is a strong supporter of the Fort Worth Independent School District, especially related to science and health curriculum,” said Superintendent Kent. P. Scribner.  “They know the importance of giving students work-based opportunities and exposure to many careers in the health and science fields.  Fort Worth ISD is proud to collaborate with UNTHSC at Fort Worth, and we are grateful for their continued commitment to our students, teachers, and community.” 

    “Preparing today’s children to become the doctors, scientists and researchers of tomorrow begins early in their education and is accomplished through the hard work and dedication of our outstanding teachers,” said Dr. Charles Taylor, Provost and Executive Vice President of The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth.

    “Science is at the core of helping us live our best lives every day through our overall health and well-being,” Dr. Taylor said. “At HSC, we provide the final tier of science-based education for future generations to become outstanding health care providers and professionals.  We are honored to be a part of the ‘Chair for Teaching Excellence in Secondary Science’ program as it emphasizes the importance of integrating science in all students’ curriculum throughout their entire educational journey.”

    Each year, the Fort Worth ISD Chairs for Teaching Excellence rewards outstanding classroom teachers in 16 categories. Dedicated business and community sponsors have provided cash awards since the program’s inception in 1994.  

    Each category has its own selection committee. Teachers selected as finalists undergo a rigorous evaluation process based on their application; a teaching demonstration recorded on video; and an interview session with their respective selection committee. 

    Each Teaching Chair’s campus will receive a banner to display in a prominent location. An awards luncheon will be held in November to recognize all winning teachers and their sponsors. In addition, a photograph of each winner will be on display at the FWISD Teaching and Learning Center for one year.
