Mayor Price Speaks to College Advisers
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price visited TCU on Thursday, July 21 to welcome the TCU College Advising Corps’ 24 new advisers and to thank them for “encouraging kids to go to college, inspiring them to dream big and giving something back to our community.”
Price spoke about Fort Worth’s initiatives to support education, including SPARC, a program to provide holiday, weekend and before- and after-school activities for children in Tarrant County. She also mentioned the FitWorth initiative and her walking and rolling town hall meetings. The Mayor answered questions from advisers on education, her work and her motivation to make a difference in the community.
College Advising Corps advisers complete their summer training before serving 24 high schools in Arlington, Birdville, Crowley, Fort Worth, Irving, Lake Worth and White Settlement Independent School Districts. Housed in the College of Education’s Center for Public Education, the Corps helps underserved high schools increase their college-bound student rates by placing well-trained, recent college graduates in local high schools to serve as advisers.
