Congratulations to the following athletes, who were nominated by their schools, for their dedication, integrity and sportsmanship in their respective sports: 

LISD STEM Academy at Memorial Elementary 4th-grader Tayveon Fogg was named the SCHEELS Elementary Athlete of the Week for his heart, sportsmanship, manners and respect.
