Kerwin Roach wins Back to Back
State Titles in the Triple Jump

Kerwin Roach has seen his share of success the past two years. Last year he was part of the state championship basketball team as well as the triple jump state champion. At the state track meet held at the University of Texas in Austin May 14-16, Roach took another gold medal home. His jump of 50í 6.25” launched him to victory and secured his place as the reigning state 6A triple jump champion. Roach, in a way, jumped in front of his “home crowd” since he is slated to attend UT and play basketball for the Longhorns. Roach indicates he will also walk on the UT track team.

Congratulations to OUR Principal!


Dr. Joe Coleman has been named as a 2015 Finalist for H-E-B's Excellence in Education Award. Dr. Coleman attributes this accolade to the hard work of his students and staff. "You know, this came as a surprise to me. I definitely could not have been in consideration for this award if it were not for my teachers and the wonderful things they do for our kids. I am truly honored!" Although he is very modest, it should be noted that Dr. Coleman has received recognition from H-E-B in his previous tenures as principal (2007: San Angelo Central High School, 2010: Fort Bend Willowridge High School).

Law Enforcement Day

On May 15, 2015, North Shore Senior High School hosted its 2nd Annual Law Enforcement

Day, which spotlighted all the law enforcement agencies that protect our local communities. The purpose of this event is to give students the opportunity to interact with

members of our law enforcement community and experience first hand some of the technologies utilized in maintaining the safety of our roads and neighborhoods. North Shore Senior High School staff and students showed their support for our officers who can face extremely dangerous situations while carrying out their duties. NSSH also recognized and thanked these brave men and women who protect and serve our communities day after day. Michael Dirden, Executive Assistant Chief of Police for the Houston Police Department, spoke to the students about career opportunities in the law enforcement. He emphasized the importance of making good decisions and the effects that will have on their lives. Harris County Sheriff's Office, Houston Police Department and Texas Department of Public Safety each sent representatives from various divisions that make up their agencies, including: SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics); Air Support; Bomb Squad; Marine Division; Mounted Patrol; K-9; Crime Scene Unit and others. Representatives from the University of Houston-Downtown and San Jacinto College spoke with students about education and career pathways.

Counselor's Corner


North Shore Senior's Counseling Team has been working diligently this year to re-structure our Counselor’s Corner. We have been so thrilled about the activities and participation of our students. We would like to reach more of our students, but the lack of technology to support them has been a major setback. We want to make sure our students have the materials they need to succeed, so we just created a request for Counselor’s Corner and poetry and prose at DonorsChoose.org


COUNSELOR'S CORNER TECHWORK is the name of the project. Every dollar counts.
