Tomball ISD and Dr. Z Welcome Home Former THS, TMHS Students for College 101

College 101 2024

In Tomball ISD, our “students will lead in creating the future.” In an effort to support those students who share an interest in pursuing college, Tomball ISD’s College 101 is an opportunity for former students to return home and provide insight to current students as they prepare to transition from high school to college. 

College 101 and Tomball ISD welcomed former students from Tomball High School and Tomball Memorial High School to share about their experiences now as college students. Set up as a panel-like discussion, each high school hosted the event.

Spearheaded by Superintendent Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora, who also served as the host, led the discussion as former students fielded questions from both Dr. Z and the student audience. The questions ranged from “why did you select your school?” to “what is it like living on your own?” to “what is some advice you’d give us now?”

A thoughtful and authentic conversation occurred with College 101 participants sharing words of wisdom whether it was to ‘research your professor, learn to use a calendar, never go to the grocery store hungry, pen yourself to new opportunities and get involved to learn your study style, learn how to manage free time, be a planner and be nice to your roommate.

Participating in the panel discussion and returning home with college insight were:
