To make a broader impact on Black and Hispanic students across the state, the institute extended its outreach efforts to young women from schools in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. Throughout the day, the students participated in an array of college-prep activities including team-building exercises, games and self-empowerment workshops.
