High School




Cotulla High School Students will participate in the 2019 National Hispanic Institute Student Leadership Conferences.  

The National Hispanic Institute has been an integral part in creating a college and career going culture at Cotulla High School.  The summer leadership conferences have supported students to become refined public speakers.  The students learn about issues that affect our youth and they formulate ways to become productive citizens of society. The NHI Summers Leadership conferences are held at four year universities to provide an opportunity for students to experience the college environment.

CHS Counselor, Marlene Costley-Maldonado, and NHI Alumni begin recruiting 9th graders to go to the 6-Day Texas Star Great Debate  in the Fall semester.  The 10th - 12th grade NHI alumni meet with potential students (GPA of 85 or above and interest in attending a four-year university) to provide them with information about the NHI Summer Conferences.  The NHI alumni discuss the program schedule, the various student activities, debate competitions, living in the college dorms, and the excitement winning Sweet 16 to receive an invitation to Celebracion in November.

NHI members from Cotulla High School plan to attend a four year university. As administrators, educators and counselors, we strive on seeing our students embrace success.  A heartfelt thank you to CISD, CHS, and NHI for supporting our students.
