East Texans Break Out the College Gear on GenTX Day
Are you seeing lots of college t-shirts today? If you forgot to wear your Longhorn or Aggie, or SFA Jacks gear, run home and change! It's all meant to support students as they move on to the next phase in their academic career, from high school to college.
KTRE says In all 14 independent school districts in Nacogdoches and Angelina counties, teachers and students are all wearing their favorite college t-shirt today. Some schools are having pep rallies and college signings to help pump up students about moving on to college.
Several schools and businesses in Angelina County are getting involved today.
Employers to hop on board include: Stephen F. Austin, Angelina College, Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce, Lufkin Chamber of Commerce, Nacogdoches Medical Center, E-Tech, Bank Corp South, and Workforce Solutions.
Generation TX organizes GenTX Day each year statewide. The initiative aims to build a college-going, career-ready culture across the state. And you get to show off your school pride!
