Last season, the COVID-19 Pandemic prevented the Cedar Hill High School Boys Track & Field Team from competing beyond a few early season meets.
Last week, it was the winter storm that cancelled a pair of early season tune-ups for the Longhorns.
Carlos Lynn was the defensive coordinator on the first-ever Cedar Hill High School State Football Championship Team in 2006.
A relatively new school located 13.5 miles northwest, across Joe Pool Lake, noticed Lynn’s talents and hired him as the head coach of Arlington Seguin High School, where he coached for a decade.
Lynn had worked on the staffs of Robert Woods (who was his high school coach at Wilmer-Hutchins) and Joey McGuire.
When the Texas 85th Legislature passed the Community Safety Education Act in 2017, school districts were required to teach a one-day course about citizen-law enforcement interaction. Cedar Hill ISD Police Chief James Hawthorne didn’t have to look far to find an officer interested in teaching it. CHISD PD Officer Eric Roberts volunteered immediately. He had previously taught a similar course to the Cedar Hill Youth Summit.
The Cedar Hill High School Girls Track & Field Team will open the 2021 season at a familiar place – Longhorn Stadium – at 7:45 a.m. this Saturday.
“I think we have a chance to finish in the top two in district,” Lady Longhorns head coach Jason Reed said. “It is very significant for us to host a meet this year.”
Hillside Pride school store is a well-known store in the halls of Cedar Hill High School. Known most for their sale of cookies in the past, the Hillside Pride store is much more than that these days.
The store was started in February 2019 by the Business and Marketing teachers at Cedar Hill High School. The two year anniversary of the store is cause for recognition, since February is National CTE Month.

Cedar Hill High School Class of 2001 Graduate Danell Goodwyn knows that sales isn’t for everyone, but he encourages scholars to consider it as a career.
“It’s not for the faint of heart, and it’s not super easy,” Goodwyn said. “At the same time, your personality and characteristics that are unique to you can help determine if a career in sales is a good fit. You have to pick up on verbal and non-verbal cues, and have some confidence in what you’re selling.”
Kia-Shun Voltz, a Cedar Hill High School Class of 2007 Graduate, always expected to be a Chief Executive Officer of a company.
