  • Tivy Senior Obtains FAA Drone Pilot License

    Tivy Senior Obtains FAA Drone Pilot License

    – Tivy High School Senior Lee McDonald has earned his FAA Drone Pilot License, the first Tivy student to complete the process through the Career & Technology Education Aviation pathway offered for students at Tivy.
    McDonald went through the training program with about 20-hours’ worth of video and quizzes before taking the test in San Antonio at the beginning of February.
    All the studying and practice paid off, as McDonald passed the test with flying colors, narrowly missing out on a perfect score with one missed question.
    “I think it feels cool that I have it,” McDonald said.

    Tivy Places 25 Musicians in Region Band

    Auditioning virtually this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, 24 Tivy High School band members earned spots in the Region 29 5A Band, while one musician earned a spot in the 6A Band.
    “Our amazing Tivy band students worked very hard through the challenges, like COVID-19, full time classes, and marching band, and they put in the extra hours to learn the music,” said head band director Roxanne Vickers.
    “Students recorded their audition segment, and it was then submitted for judging. This was a first for these students as these auditions are usually in person.”
