On Thursday, October 19, 2017 the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color (TECMSC) convened at the Tarrant County College-Trinity River Campus. Educational leaders from ISD’s, community colleges, and universities from across the state of Texas, attended the one day institute. Activities included, updates from the Advisory Council, a student/local partners panel, and breakout sessions by region and institution type, among others. We would like to thank our partners at TCC for hosting us.
In addition, on Friday, October 20, 2017, Tarrant County College in collaboration with the University of North Texas, and in partnership with the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color, hosted the inaugural North Texas Male Student Leadership Summit. This leadership experience was open to all high school and college students, and included speakers, activities and networking centered around the themes of Brotherhood, Leadership, College & Career Readiness, and Health & Wellness. Congratulations on putting together a successful event!
On Aug. 17-18, 2017, the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color hosted the fourth annual Texas Male Student Leadership Summit at the University of Texas at Austin, and it was a resounding success. Over 300 young men of color and professionals attended, representing school districts, community colleges, and universities from across the state of Texas.
This year our featured keynote speakers were Mr. Ernesto Mejia, co-founder of CoolSpeak and Mr. Corey Tabor, director of Austin LifeGuard. This year we also introduced a fourth theme “Health & Wellness.” Some of the workshops we facilitated under this theme, dealt with framing identity to reclaiming one’s self, restorative practices in schools, and leadership, brotherhood, and family. Our program also highlighted our students and student voice through our featured student panel, which was made up of student representatives from Consortium partner institutions. Additionally, we had a successful professional networking opportunity for our students through our Career and Education Fair, that brought together professional and educational institutions from across the state of Texas.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors, partners, presenters, DDCE staff, Project MALES staff, and volunteers who made this 2017 Texas Male Student Leadership Summit a huge success. THANK YOU!
