A student from Beeville has graduated from the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science, a highly touted and rigorous program for academically gifted students, at the University of North Texas in Denton on May 14.

Trevor Dragon, who previously attended Skidmore-Tynan High School, plans to major in mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University in the fall. Dragon is the son of Mark and Jennifer Dragon. He is the grandson of Edward and Aleene Sugarek of Beeville and Ernest and Barbara Dragon of Panna Maria.

TAMS is a two-year residential program for students at UNT that allows exceptionally talented students to complete their freshman and sophomore years of college while also receiving their high school diplomas. Students enroll in the academy following their sophomore year in high school, live in a UNT residence hall and attend UNT classes with college students. After two years, they enroll at UNT or another university to complete their education.

TAMS began in 1987 as a way to help Texas’ brightest teenagers get a head start on careers as physicians, engineers and science researchers.
