It seems like Natalie Collazo, daughter of Christine & David Collazo, has been very busy lately.  She recently played in the Solo & Ensemble contest with her Bass Clarinet & scored a 1 on her piece. That means she placed a Gold Medal for that event. Then she played with a partner in a Doubles Tennis match and placed a Silver Medal for that event. If that wasn’t enough for you, she also participated in a Team Spelling Bee and came in 2nd place, and that merited her a Silver Medal for that event. LOOK OUT OLYMPICS….. She may be headed you direction real soon.


Congratulations to Julie Joffrion! Port Arthur Memorial placed first in team standings at the Anahuac power lifting meet on Jan. 20 and second in the West Brook Invitational. All 14 of coach Julie Joffrion entrants secured a medal in Anahuac as the Lady Titans collected 80 points to easily outdistance runner-up Anahuac at 26. Seven Lady Titans placed first in their respective weight categories. WOW Julie, GOOD JOB!
