In its efforts to prevent and contain the spread of COVID-19, there are several tools available.
Cedar Hill Independent School District follows all CDC guidelines, regarding face masks, social distancing and hygiene.
Like many of the extracurricular programs on campus, the Cedar Hill High School Highsteppers Dance Team have made adjustments since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
It started last spring with a socially-distant senior sendoff, as families watched their daughters perform a routine, from cars in the parking lot of Cedar Hill High School. Everyone wore masks, and the seniors received final gifts that day from Highsteppers coach Mila McQueen.
It’s a quiet morning in Whitney, Texas – a community so small that the entire population could fit into Longhorn Stadium.
Retired football coach Robert Woods calls Whitney – 64 miles southwest of Cedar Hill – home. He’ll go for relaxing walks, play a round of golf or admire the views of scenic Lake Whitney.
Although he’s been retired for approximately 15 years, the 69-year-old Woods sometimes reflects upon the success that two assistants that he hired at Cedar Hill have achieved with the Longhorn Football Program.
‘Longhorn Speed’ has nothing to do with 40-yard dash times or how quickly a defensive player can get to the quarterback.
“Longhorn speed is not about speed at all,” Cedar Hill Defensive Coordinator Demarcus Harris said. “It is all about playing as hard as you can, for as long as you can. So that late in the games your opponent can't keep up.”
Everyone in Cedar Hill, and nearly everyone who follows prep football in Dallas-Fort Worth knows about Longhorns senior quarterback Kaidon Salter’s accomplishments on the gridiron.
Gatorade has noticed as well.
Health and safety continue to be priorities as we prepare for the start of school. We appreciate parents’ active engagement in their scholar’s educational experiences. We know it’s important to keep you informed and we want to provide you with an update on school reopening plans.
Longhorn Next Chapter
Anzhané Hutton chose a college to help change the world. Social justice and racial equality are very important to her, and she wanted a decision that would align with those values.
“I chose Howard University because it was the Historically Black College & University (HBCU) that offered me a scholarship,” Hutton said. “Our success on the basketball court will bring attention not just to Howard, but all HBCUs. It will be good to be part of the group that starts it.”
One of Christina Moreland’s goals is to work on animation for music videos.
The Cedar Hill High School Class of 2011 Graduate is already off to a great start.
She oversaw the animation for the new music video of Grammy-Award winning artist Darlene Love’s latest edition of her hit song, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).”
When Elisha (Wroten) Enoksen was a young child, her parents were missionaries who traveled to Guatemala in the aftermath of an earthquake.
Before she learned to count to 10 or recite the alphabet, Enoksen had first-hand knowledge of what it was like to participate in a humanitarian effort.
“I quickly learned about the importance of helping others – we don’t just live in our own bubble,” said Enoksen, a Cedar Hill High School Class of 1998 Graduate. “That helped me with deciding how I wanted to live my life.”
Seven former Cedar Hill High School football team players, all of whom are collegiate wide receivers, will compete in their respective college football bowl games in the State of Texas, including six in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
“We’ve had a really good group of kids come through Cedar Hill,” Cedar Hill Wide Receivers Coach Kevin Benjamin said. “We coach them the right way and set them up for success. It is a great opportunity for these guys to come back close to home and play close enough for their families members to possibly see them play.”
Adam Shead remembers the summer of 2004 like it was yesterday.
He had just moved to Cedar Hill and walked into his seventh grade Texas History class. His teacher was Kevin Benjamin, now the CHHS wide receivers coach.
