Worley AVID Goes to UT and Baylor!!

Last week, our 8th grade AVID students made two whirlwind college visits to the University of Texas in Austin on April 30th and Baylor University in Waco on May 2nd.

AVID sponsors - Leah Roberts and Jana Douglas- said the students were mesmerized by the vastness of UT and the personalized attention they received at Baylor. Students toured both campuses visiting the cafeteria, the dorms and even a 300 seat lecture hall. Students learned quite a bit about the culture of both campuses. On the ride home from Waco, the students reflected on their visits. Students compared the pros and cons of each university.
Exposing students to the college experience is the entire objective of the AVID program. All year, our students have been learning what it takes to make it to college AND how to be successful once they've made it there!

We are so proud that our Worley Tigers are already preparing for their college experience. It's never too early to make college plans.

Sic 'em Bears! 

Hook 'em Horns!
