Local student accepted to scholars program

Jack Ezell

After a five hour tour of NASA in Houston, Jack Ezell has been interested in space exploration. The Fairfield junior was recently honored by being accepted as part of the Texas High School Aerospace Scholars Program – a first in the history of Fairfield High School.

“I didn't realize I was the first student from FHS to be chosen for the program until Mr. Price said it the other night,” said Ezell. “I'm very honored to have been selected, and I will do my best to make FHS proud.”

This program caters to youth with specialized interest as an interactive online learning experience ending with an all-expenses-paid, week-long visit to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston next summer.

Although exact plans haven't been made available, Ezell will join other like-minded students to plan a mission to Mars and work with NASA astronauts.

Fairfield stings the Hornets in thriller 67-65

Fairfield junior Kolbie Branch, 4, looks for an outlet pass last week in the Eagles' complete domination of the Madisonville Mustangs, 75-38! Branch, a great all-round player, had 12 rebounds and several steals for the week as he and his teammates increased their district record (4-0), one game ahead of Mexia.

As the only undefeated team in 18-4A through the first half of the district race, the Eagles literally flew circles around the Madisonville Mustangs last Tuesday, Jan. 24, almost doubling them, 75-38! Then, on Friday, they fell behind early in the game to Athens, 10-2, then came back to take a 21-20 lead just before the first quarter ended.

They eventually won a fiercely fought battle on the very last possessions of the game by two points! Fairfield goes into their Tuesday night, Jan. 31 rematch with second place Mexia, ranked No. 27 in the state in Class 4-A (188 schools) by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches and 11th by the computer formulas of Max Preps. They currently stand (22-5) for the season!
