Teachers at Webb Elementary spent today focusing on a specific academic skill by creating lessons to motivate students in the classrooms. Each grade level used a different theme to present the skill and create an environment that excited the students as they learned. Teachers at WEbb have spent the first 9 weeks of school participating in a book study. The author of that book, "Crash Course", Kim Bearden, also surprised the teachers by visiting. Teachers were able to share their lessons and excitement with her.

John Hill Price witnessed first-hand what many Texas A&M fans will remember for a lifetime. As a band member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Corps of Cadets, he was able to march on the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Then, he watched the Aggie football team, led by quarterback Johnny Manziel, pull off the upset of then-No. 1 Alabama. “We didn’t know what we were going to see when we got into it, but it was so cool,” Price said. “It was an amazing experience. I wouldn’t trade that for anything to be there.”
Price, the Navasota High School Class of 2011 valedictorian, also had the opportunity to travel the world while he majored in biology at Texas A&M. That included studying biology and agriculture in China, Italy, Ghana and Costa Rica.
Now a PhD. Student at the University of Minnesota, Price looks to help developing countries better feed themselves by breeding plants that can adjust to climates non suited for the crop plants like here in the United States.
At the University of Minnesota, he’s working on plant breeding and genetics in the Applied Plant Sciences program. He said when he’s finished, he wants to work in places like Ghana or other desert countries, to help further develop their food sources. His particular plant is a weed called silphium, which he looks to harness into a crop plant.
“Even in our own country there’s a lot of work to be done on that front,” Price said. It’s wherever I get called I guess.”
Price was a two-year drum major at Navasota who played various sports and participated in clubs like many NHS students. He said the overall diversity in NISD prepared him for his journeys at A&M and Minnesota.
“I think one of the biggest things I benefitted from going to Navasota was that we have a very diverse population in Navasota,” Price said. “It’s good, because you learn to work with people who aren’t exactly like you. People who have different backgrounds, different stories, different experiences and different outlooks on life.”
He also credits the teachers who helped mold him into who he became as a student.
“There were a lot of fantastic educators here who set me on the right path to be where I am now.”
