Congratulations to HECHS Senior, Learsi De Hoyos for being chosen as the Youth of the Year for the RGV – Sector Border Patrol.

For 21 years, the Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol has administered an educational program titled Head of the Class to recognize high achieving students in the valley. Their mission - the Head of the Class is an award to recognize seniors attending 66 of the Rio Grande Valley’s high schools. Students are nominated then selected by a committee. Additionally, as an extension of the Head of the Class program, RGV-Sector will recognize two to four Head of the Class recipients as Youth of the Year.
