Ag Mechanics Students -San Antonio Stock Show Competition

ZHS 9th grade students visited Texas A&M University- Kingsville on Friday, February 15, 2019. Students were able to explore the campus and ask questions about particular majors and student life. 

The first GEAR UP meeting was truly an inspiration! To see so many parents show up to get information on a seven year journey their children will be embarking on was amazing. Parents learned what the GEAR UP grant is about, what it will do, the partnerships, how many students will be serviced, and what the end result is expected to be in seven years. Parents walked out with a wealth of knowledge and confidence that being a participant of GEAR UP is a step in the right direction for their child's post-secondary educational path!
