HISD Family Career Night: 500+ Participants from East and Northeast Region tudents

Posted on

On Wednesday, April 19, 500+ K-12 students in the East and Northeast part of Houston attended the HISD Family Career Night, sponsored by District VIII Trustee Diana Dávila. Students had the opportunity to learn more about different careers in the Greater Houston area, HISD programs and resources, and how to connect with higher education and industry representatives.

Trustee Dávila inspired students to persist in the face of adversity, and her message to parents showed that support can go a long way in ensuring that every student successfully reaches their educational goals:

Mis padres me dijeron: no te puedo dar carro, ni dinero pero te podemos apoyar en tú estudios.

My parents told me: we can give you neither a car nor money, but we can support you in your studies.

Students also had the opportunity to win door prizes such as Amazon Fire tablets, and two HISD students won a $500 college scholarship:

Edwin Garay, 4th Grade student at Raul C. Martinez ES
Oscar Marquez, 12th Grade student at East Early College HS
