September has been an exciting month for EMERGE. We launched our new partnership in Spring Branch Independent School District (SBISD)—our first expansion site—serving more than 100 students across the district.
Additionally, in the Houston Independent School District (HISD), Program Managers have been working around the clock to ensure that every EMERGE senior is prepared and on track to apply to the nation’s top colleges by December. This year, we have 160 seniors in HISD—our largest class yet!
Last but certainly not least, 97 EMERGE students from the class of 2015 started college this month at 63 top tier colleges and universities across the country. Our impact is growing, and in four years, these students will return to Houston to become the next generation of leaders in our city.
Stay tuned for more news from the EMERGE team.
