The UIL, University Interscholastic League, Academic season begins in January 2018. There are many different opportunities to participate in UIL such as Journalism, Number Sense, One Act Play and most recently, Debate.

As a coach, I feel that UIL is a great opportunity for students,” UIL coach Yvonne Clark said. “It allows students to compete and build test-taking skills. Plus, competitors meet other students from outside their school district.”  

UIL presents a unique opportunity for students who participate. Scholarships and letter jackets are benefits of the UIL program.

“State Journalism UIL was so fun,” sophomore Riley Foster said. “We got to miss school and compete with other smart people at the UT Austin campus. I also got my letterman from competing, which was awesome!”

Debate is the newest addition to Henderson’s Academic UIL. Its coach, Callie Lawrence, is a new teacher at HHS, and the debate program has grown from one out-of-pocket debater to six school-funded student competitors in under one year.

“We offer Cross Examination, Lincoln Douglas and Extemporaneous Speaking,” Lawrence said. “I have a few spots open, but first come first serve. Show up in the Journalism room Wednesdays after school and I will explain what all these words mean.”  

“As the season of the physical mock-war we know as football draws to a close, mental battles definitely grow in importance. Be prepared: UIL Academics are coming. We’re kicking tails and taking… literally any money the school is willing to hand out. Please just give us some funding and respect. Please. For the love of all that is holy.”, said Mia Hay.
