Harlandale ISD students participate in annual MLK Jr. Chess Tournament

A total of 18 Harlandale ISD students, ranging from elementary to high school age, competed in the 24th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Chess Tournament held at Kazen Middle School on Jan. 18.

As part of San Antonio’s DreamWeek 2020 celebration, the event featured 73 students from different schools across the city.  This is the first time Harlandale ISD participated in this event.

After several hours of friendly competition, Harlandale ISD’s elementary team earned second place, the middle school team won first place, and the high school team earned second place.

Harlandale ISD Elementary Science and Social Studies Facilitator Isabel Garza coached the high school students and was happy to see all the students recognized for their hard work.

“I am very proud,” Garza said. “We are slowly creating a legacy of amazing chess players in Harlandale ISD, and without the coaches at each campus level, the chess program would not be successful.”

Congratulations to all the student winners!
