Wednesday, May 07, 2008  •  Press Release

AUSTIN– Gov. Rick Perry today honored the Fall 2007 University Interscholastic League (UIL) state champions in athletics, academics and music.

Approximately 500 students, coaches and superintendents traveled to the state Capitol to celebrate the accomplishments of individual and team champions. Texas Education Agency Commissioner Robert Scott, UIL Director Bill Farney and Assistant Director Charles Breithaupt were also part of the celebration.

"These students embody the values that have made Texas the greatest state in the nation: they are smart, hardworking and they don’t give up even in the face of the toughest challenges," said Gov. Perry.

"We’re proud to honor these Texas champions who have not only fulfilled their responsibilities in the classroom but spent countless hours representing their schools on the playing fields and in competitions," said Scott. "They’ve brought positive and well-deserved recognition to their schools and communities."

"The UIL is honored to have such great students participate through all of our activities and thrilled that these champions are being recognized in such a public manner," said Breithaupt.  "We're grateful to Gov. Perry for acknowledging for their outstanding achievements."

The UIL is a voluntary organization created by the University of Texas at Austin to provide leadership and guidance to various educational extracurricular academic, athletic, and music programs. UIL also organizes and supervises competitions in each of these fields.
