Good morning Eagle Family, On the Weekend of May 8th, our student athletes did a great job shining a positive light on our school. Thank you to all the student groups (Diamonds, Cheer, Volleyball, Girls/Boys Basketball, Football, Track, Baseball, Wrestling) and coaches who came out on Saturday morning to help with the Dia de los Ninos event at Mendez Middle School. They all gave up their Saturday Morning to serve our community and make a difference in the lives of a lot of people. We are beyond proud of all of them.  In addition, track athlete Trystin Brown competed in the 110H at the UIL State Track meet at The University of Texas on Saturday evening. He became the first athlete in school history to compete in the State Meet and represented Akins very well. Trystin will end his track career at Akins with numerous records and finished in the Top 9 in the state of Texas against all other 6A competitors. We are so proud of all his accomplishments.
