Shout-Out to Stripes and Farmers Insurance!

Administering state assessments can be taxing, but Stripes Convenience Stores wanted to make sure our staff was up for the task! They donated delicious breakfast tacos to jump start their day. Thank you, Stripes!

Local Farmers Insurance agents also know how to spoil our students and staff. They donated school supplies and sweet treats- both of which are in high demand this time of year! We are so thankful for the generous donation; thank you, Farmers! #communitythatcares #GPPride

Wetlands on Wheels and WCA's Oyster Farm

The Environmental Club recently hosted Jay Tarkington, a Biologist from the University of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, to educate the club on native animal habitats and their adaptations. He exhibited his mobile museum, and also set up an aquarium for WCA to have their very own oyster farm. This farm is displayed in the cafeteria for all to enjoy and discover the role of oysters in our bays. Over the weeks to come, WCA will watch them grow, filter, and these special oysters will be released back into the bay. #TAMUCC #ecofriendly
