Tabling in Cougar Country

Yesterday, Tami, Hart and I tabled at Crockett HS during their single lunch period.  We were joined by visiting writers and educators, Seth Kershner and Scott Harding, who are working on a book about counter-recruitment and came to Austin to interview several of us who have been involved in SOY. 

Students were interested in doing stenciling, and quite a few took literature and brought friends over to see what we had.  As always, it was great to see how creative the students are, bringing their own individual styles and ideas to what they do.

Crockett HS is located right across the street from an ACC campus, so a number of students take ACC classes while still in high school.  Crockett is also one of the schools in AISD that has a College Forward program, which assists students who may be the first in their families to pursue college.  Check out the College Forward program at this link.
