Welcome to Mineral Wells I.S.D.
Mineral Wells ISD has Great Schools for a Great Community!
Student trainers from Mineral Wells High School had an early start to their school year when they assisted our coaches and athletic trainers during two-a-days in August. With the summer heat, the student trainers also ensured that the teams had plenty of cool water to drink during all practices, scrimmages, and games. Their mission-to help keep athletes safe and healthy during the athletic season.
Of course, the days of student athletic trainers being perceived as simply ankle tapers and water cooler monitors are long over. Under the supervision of MWISD certified athletic trainers, Ryan McKee and Amber Stone, the students learn and participate in prevention care, first-aid, and rehabilitation of sports injuries. They put in a great deal of hours with daily direct training room duties and providing training coverage at assigned athletic events both at home and away competitions.
The student athletic trainers are an invaluable part if the MWHS sports medicine program. Without their assistance, MWISD would not be able to provide outstanding medical coverage to our teams. They are our second set of eyes, ears, and hands. With their support, it allows our athletic trainers to perform the advance tasks and procedures that are part of being a certified athletic trainer.
Having a student athletic trainer program is a major step toward improving sports safety in schools. These students fill a very important position within any athletic department, working with coaches and trainers to reach the same goal: a successful, healthy program.
This year’s team includes:
Standing: Jacob Acosta, Beatriz Zapata, Mirella Castor, Airaca Graham, Amber Stone (AT), Ryan McKee(AT), Amy Greensweight, Alisha Wells, Darian Moya Jordan Lenamon

Varsity Volleyball Program
Volleyball players at Mineral Wells High School will take the time before their September 4th match against Bridgeport to show their teachers how much they appreciate what they do for them in the classroom.
The students invited all Mineral Wells High School teachers to the game so that they could honor them with a special recognition before the match.
“Our intent is to recognize our teachers in a special way,” said head volleyball coach Leighanne Ortiz who organized the evening for Teacher Appreciation Night. "We want to take a moment to honor and recognize our staff because they contribute to the overall success of our athletes."
“Teachers spend many hours preparing lessons that are engaging and fun,” she added. Our girls know that they are student athletes and that being a student athlete is one of our goals. We expect our athletes to have a 100% passing rate, turn in work on time, and prepare adequately for tests. Our girls are excited to start this tradition".
The pre-game recognition will begin at 4:15 pm. Come on out to recognize our outstanding teachers and support the Lady Rams as they take on the Lady Bulls at 5:00 pm.
Varsity Volleyball team members are: Megan Hamric, Peyton Malone, Bea Martinez, Erin McGuire, Brailey Garcia, Krista Burns, Talynn Perry, Kaylee Gregory, Ashley Valdez, Jacey Grimes, Sami Hickey, and Ali Blissitte.
