April 27, 2010 - For those of you that know me, I am a huge cowboy boots and belt buckle guy. I suppose that it goes back to my Missouri roots. And my favorite place in the world (in fact, the only place) to buy boots is the Lucchese Boot Company in El Paso, Texas. So imagine my excitement when ConnectEDU was informed that we had won the competitive bid process to put our college and career planning solutions into Texas… statewide!
Well, to be honest, I was excited for a lot of reasons beyond the thoughts of a potential boot shopping trip. In fact, we have been working hard in Texas to assist many of their districts with their college and career planning process. So it is exciting that the State has selected us to work with them to increase high school completion and college-going rates for traditionally underserved students. We are excited to partner with the State of Texas and are looking forward to working with them to make a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of the Lone Star State’s students! More to come on this initiative… stay tuned!
