COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - A beloved teacher and former Dean of Students at A&M Consolidated High School was honored Thursday by students and faculty.
Christi Cheshire passed away in 2018. According to the College Station ISD Education Foundation, Cheshire spent 33 years at AMCHS.
Since her death, the district has set up a scholarship in her name, and on Thursday, staff from different departments at the school participated in a Chili Cook-off to raise money for the scholarship fund.
