The Air Force JROTC (AFJROTC ) at Treasure Coast HS recently held a Basic Training week for new Cadets. The week focused on basic training including teamwork, drill, and marksmanship activities.
Treasure Coast High School is excited to announce the arrival of Senior Aerospace Science Instructor, Colonel James Golden. He arrives with the extensive aviation experience and education required to deliver the school’s Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) dual-enrollment classes. Col Golden will be teaching the ERAU classes where cadets will not only receive college credit from an esteemed university, but also have an opportunity to take a certification test to fly Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)…also called “drones.”
Col Golden says, “With this certification a cadet can get a job operating drones in an expanding market of opportunities for UAS operators.” These two new opportunities for cadets are awesome. In addition to these, the Air Force JROTC is doing their part to address the country’s pilot shortage. “America is short pilots, civilian and military”, said MSgt Frazier. Former Cadet Jesus Paz is currently at ERAU receiving his Private Pilot’s License. AFJROTC is paying over $35,000 for his training through the AFJROTC Flight Academy Private Pilot’s License Scholarship. This is a very exciting opportunity for any AFJROTC cadet to earn their private pilot’s license, and potentially have their entire bachelor’s degree paid for through further scholarships! It is an exciting time to be an Air Force JROTC Cadet!
For more information, contact MSgt Frazier at 807-4516.

Pat Kelly, who this season guided the Treasure Coast High School boys basketball team to the best record in the program’s 12-year history, has been named the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches Class 9A Coach of the Year. Under Kelly, the Titans started 16-0, finished 26-2, won their second consecutive District 8-9A title and advanced to the Region 2-9A semifinals before losing to 2017 state champion Kissimmee-Osceola.
“It’s nice to be recognized by my peers,” Kelly said. “It’s a reflection of the fact that we had a group of kids who came together and played well and were persistent in trying to accomplish their goals. The kids deserve the credit for buying in.” The loss ended a school-record 26-game regular-season winning streak. The 16-0 start was the eighth-longest in area history and the best by a St. Lucie County team since high school basketball began in 1919-20.
Treasure Coast High School’s Guidance Team initiated monthly Counselors’ Corner gatherings. These meetings are designed for parents and guardians to meet the counselors of TCHS as well as have their voices heard and allow them to learn about some of the programs, resources, logistics, and roles of individuals at TCHS and the District.
The kick-off meeting served as a meet-and-greet with coffee, tea, and tasty breakfast items prepared by the chefs-in-training from the Titan Culinary Arts Academy.
Data Specialist Sheila Nobel went over basic Skyward accessibility, and Principal Susan Seal along with all the seven school counselors socialized with parents and addressed questions and concerns they had. A needs assessment was provided in order to determine the most relevant topics for future Counselors’ Corner sessions.

Mr. Darrell M.Schwartz, history teacher at Treasure Coast High School, announces that about two months ago the Gaming Club was created on our campus.
The purpose of the club is to bring all students together who have an interest in friendship and fun competition. The club includes Video and Computer Gaming along with Board Games and Card Games. The club meets weekly and has grown to over 40 students attending with very limited promotion. The most amazing aspect of this club is that it is attracting students who would not normally participate in school events and/or after school activities. A lot of the students have now found a place to hang out, talk, make friends, and have friendly competition.
The club is now looking at creating competitive gaming groups that will be able to compete with other schools online within our state and nation. They are calling themselves Gaming Athletes.
Please feel free to stop by any Tuesday from 2 to 3pm (bldg. 4, room 211) to see this phenomena yourself!

On Sept. 27th thirty-one TCHS HOSA Club members traveled from TCHS to Jupiter to participate in HOSA’s Regional Fall Leadership Conference. During the conference, HOSA students had the opportunity to observe the parliamentary process by listening to campaign speeches and voting for different candidates running for their prospective offices at the regional level. Members also voted on this year’s HOSA t-shirt design as well as learning about the HOSA national service project: National Pediatric Cancer Project. Our Club will participate with this effort by raising awareness and funds to support this foundation in research and development for a cure for pediatric cancer!
Our HOSA Club was part of 400 other HOSA members which allowed our students to collaborate with other schools and learn more about future leadership opportunities as they strive toward their own personal healthcare academic and career goals. Our club will travel to West Palm Beach in January of 2019 to participate in the HOSA Regional Winter Conference and various competitions. TCHS HOSA club members who rank first, second or third in their competition category will then have an opportunity to compete at a State level.
