Visit with the President!

Image
I was one of the 3 students selected to travel with the President of the University to Dallas. President Powers visited 3 high schools in the Dallas area, and one of those happened to be my old high school! I was super excited! I almost missed my flight because I was suppose to arrived at 6:30am and I woke up that day at 6:03am so you can imagine how fast I had to get dressed. We traveled in a private airplane =) It was such a neat experience to go back to my high school and motivate students about going to college. It's not every day the President of a university goes to your high school to talk to you about college. Awesome job Powers!

Remembering Summer 2009

I was going through pictures from summer 2009. I wanted to share some highlights from this awesome summer. It was full of activities. From education forums about college, the DREAM Act, State Convention to National Convention, to even showing support of Iran. This summer was dedicated to the community =) I hope you enjoy it! I realized I wasn't in many of the pictures, and that's because I was the one taking them lol

"Mr. deBerry passed away."
I remember crying the day I found out. Mr. deBerry passed away. He was by far one of the most influential teachers that I've came across to. He not only thought us about government, but he also though us about life and challenged us to think outside the classroom walls. He never gave up on his students. Even for the dumbest kid in the class, he would find a way to motivate them and tell them he believed in them. I remember he came to one of my cross country meets. I came in 13 place( Top 10 qualified for regionals) and told me how proud he was =) My best friend Becky thought I had a serious crush on him, but honestly I didn't lol. I just really LOVED Mr. deBerry. He will never be forgotten.

Hi Carla, It's great to hear from you. I really miss you. You will always be one of my favorite students ever. Don't worry about the Dream Act. Everyone with any brains knows that it is the right thing to do. The only reason it di…
