Dallas Stars AVID Leadership Day

ORS Upward Bound students were given the opportunity to attend the Dallas Stars AVID Leadership Day. Only the top 40 students, making a B or better in all classes, from each school were eligible to go on this trip. The students got to hear from prominent members from the DFW community, the Dallas Stars social media manager, and even a former player! They attended workshops that highlighted different careers and the speakers were able to talk about how they overcame obstacles similar to those that our students face. After the workshops, our students had the privilege to attend the Dallas Stars vs Columbus Blue Jackets game. Our students even made it onto the Jumbotron!
