Principal's Message

Brenda K. Betancourt


"I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all students and parents to another exciting year at Kenneth White Junior High. The 2016-2017 academic year promises to be another prosperous year for our campus.

Over the last several years, the efforts of our students and teachers have helped bring recognition, honors and awards to our campus. These accomplishments have helped install a competitive spirit, winning attitude and pride in our students. In order to continue these winning traditions, students, teachers and parents must be committed to excellence. This commitment to excellence must be reflected in all our daily practices. We must maintain high levels of structure in our daily routines, respect one another and expect high levels of academic rigor in every classroom.

While academics is the ultimate driving force behind all that we do at KWJH, it is also our mission to develop a well-rounded student. For that reason, extracurricular programs have been made available to all students. Our fine arts, athletic, UIL and STEM programs are an integral part of our organization.

I am honored to be able to serve as Principal at Kenneth White Junior High and I am looking forward to working with you to fulfill your child’s educational needs.

On behalf of K. White Jr. High faculty and staff, I thank you in advance for all your support.

Let’s Go, Hawks!"

K.White Jr. High MetalHawks Robotics Team Takes 2nd Place at Robotics Competition

The Kenneth White Jr. High (KWJH) MetalHawks team placed 2nd Overall at the annual Hispanic Engineering, Science, and Technology (HESTEC) Robotics Day Competition hosted by UTRGV on Thursday, October 5, 2017. Over 55 middle schools and high schools participated in this year’s Robotics Day Competition.
The competition, a quadrathlon, consisted of four challenges that tested the students’ ability to design, build, and program a robot that could complete all four challenges while recording the fastest time possible. The challenges included: a Lego Grand Prix, Lego Maze, Lego Search and Rescue, and a Lego Tracer. Each obstacle course integrated STEM concepts, which provide students with a first-hand learning experience on the fundamentals of engineering and commercialization. In order to succeed, the students needed to display versatility as the objectives varied from the fastest speed, appropriate use of sensors, and the ability to drive the robot with a controller of their choice. Teams who completed an individual challenge with the fastest time received an individual award for that obstacle. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Overall Awards were given to teams that averaged the fastest times on all four challenges, thus placing them above all teams who competed.
The KWJH MetalHawks had a strong performance and did an excellent job representing their campus and our district. Team members for KWJH MetalHawks included: Jorge Salinas, AlphaHawk Captain; Ismael Alvarado, Alma Gomez, Carlos Wong, Danilee Alaniz, Andy Rodriguez, BravoHawk Captain; Anthony Flores, Maritza Moreno, Jordan Hernandez, and Eric Calderon. MetalHawks Coaches are: Mr. Jose L. Sanchez, Ms. Shaila Silva, Mr. Adrian Chapa, and Mrs. Daniela Garcia.
