Two students from De Zavala Middle School -- fifth-grader Diego Mondragon and sixth-grader Saul Cisneros -- were among the three Pasadena ISD students awarded "Best of Show" in this month's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo district art contest.
Mondragon won in the elementary school competition, which includes grades K-6. Cisneros won in the intermediate school category, which includes grades 7-8.
Awarded "Best of Show" in the high school division was Memorial High senior Jessica Vega.
Memorial captured all of the top awards in the high school competition. Gold medals were awarded to freshman Tram Lee and junior Jessica Riojas. Special merit awards went to junior Maria Fernanda Morales, Sam Stewart and Brittany Seay.
Sandy Chavez, a first-grader at Bush Elementary, received a gold medal, as did Floyd Mendoza, a seventh-grader at Bondy Intermediate.
