3 Students Advance to State: Miller Grove 1A Region 3 UIL Academic Results

Miller Grove ISD administration launched a plan three years ago to win the district championship in academic UIL and start qualifying students for the state meet on a regular basis. This is a process, and we took a huge step this year. We were able to win the district championship this year and have qualified three students for the state meet. The One Act Play advanced to regionals for the first time and the school placed 7th in the region, which is the highest finish for the school. We are proud of what these students have been able to accomplish and are excited for the future.
