Tomball ISD Welcomes Home Former Students for College 101 Experience
TOMBALL - In Tomball ISD, “students lead in creating the future.” In an effort to support those students who share an interest in pursuing college, Tomball ISD hosts College 101, an annual event to provide insight from former TISD students to current juniors and seniors as they prepare to transition from high school to college.
College 101 and Tomball ISD welcomed home 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 and welcomed seniors to the program.
Superintendent Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora served as the host and former students fielded questions from both Dr. Z and the student audience, ranging from “Is college what you expected?” to “What is it like living on your own?” to “Did high school prepare you for college?”
Participating in the panel discussion and returning home for this year’s College 101 were:
