Covenant Students Excel at TAPPS District Competition


On February 23, 2010, Covenant Rhetoric students traveled to Wichita Falls to compete in the District TAPPS Academic and Art Competition.    In Art and in Academics, Covenant students rose to the top and many earned the opportunity to advance to the state competition in Austin.

Eighteen students submitted art for the competition.  Seventy percent of these entries received awards including seven First Place ribbons.  Of the forty-four pieces that either placed or received honorable mention, twenty-seven qualified for the state competition.  While Covenant is significantly smaller than many competing schools, our school placed 2nd overall in the art competition.

Rhetoric students also placed in six academic categories and will advance to the state competition.

Congratulations to the students, Mrs. Capshaw, Mrs. Fellers, and Mr. Warmath for representing CCS with excellence.
