Aldine ISD Student Earns Texas Theatre Scholar Award

The award recognizes theatre students who demonstrate high academic success.

District student Chacen Cloud from Nimitz High School recently earned the Texas Theatre Scholars Award from Texas Thespians for the 2023-2024 school year.

The initiative, launched in 2022-2023 from the Texas Thespians Advocacy Network, recognizes and honors high school theatre students who demonstrate achievement in theatrical performance, exhibit high academic success, and outstanding citizenship.

To be designated as a Texas Theatre Scholar, a student must be enrolled in school, be a member in good standing with their campus theatre department, actively participate in theatrical programs during the designated school year, and earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Students with a 3.5 cumulative GPA become Vice President’s List Scholars, and students with a 4.0 GPA are awarded the President’s List Scholar distinction.

Honorees must also have fulfilled any additional local criteria required by their theatre program and exhibit behavior and good moral character, which brings honor to the campus theatre department, school, and community.
